“Does … hope [pervade] our century? Perhaps, but poetry does not confirm that impression, and it is a more reliable witness than journalism. If something cannot be verified on a deeper level, that of poetry, it is not, we may suspect, authentic.” Czeslaw Milosz


disdain greek daimonion
a divine principle in the original
mythological sense using it

render to the demon what is his old
english feend or dest-inctions and
vulgate bulging god of eyes

fat hen and vulgate fortune
a loved toy church fathers
and vulgate for purposes of deuil

christian greek daimonion in hellcniht
literally hellcniht literally hellcniht literally
hellcniht hellcniht hell hell hell literally hell

of poets’ come
though it’s where
that must be he

the disclosure of poetry
is rightly said to be
the disclosure of poets

though it’s there where
that he must be
an exaggeration

to maintain that he must be
he a disclosure put to
shame by the daimonion

though it’s why poets come
it’s an exaggeration i guess
to say poets come from shame

john hepburn is dead
force of white dying
a gay brother the seafarer

and during sodomy
the street coterie is known
the sex violent and convicted

as for sodomy who turns
who operates a seafarer
unruly offensive drummer boy

a business opportunity
provided by the reverend
sinister society anti-oedipus

the most sinister priest-manipulators
psychoanalysis as unanswerable
pilloried analysts in capitalist disorder

daimonion demonstrations
widely regarded as unanswerable
pilloried writers thinkers motorcycle

repairmen unanswerable and indicted
psychoanalysis as capitalist disorder
analysis pilloried and then indicted

an oiled lacanian camp in paris
literary critics pilloried become
unanswerable almost sinister

the priest-manifold tripartite thing
commissioned to be an american
academic and imaginary pleasure

chosen to embody the aesthetics
of a garbage dump he was himself
an era of absurdity in january

his photographs inspired
the british to subject germans
to vulgata aesthetics ad copy

daimonion burning pleasant

“I lie out / dragging myself forward with bear-knives in my fists.” Galway Kinnell


      i begin to the next 

i spend climb 
the old snow on the thigh and 
      fall one day i begin 
to keep up 

     the fairway i 
  begin to hunt him down as i knew 
   i would   
        and which i lurch

the word "hunt" appears precisely
no time in Gallway Kinnell's
     mattering wonder old snow the bear him 
and digest of the wind 
in her ravine 
the bear's 
blood the world 

   i awaken 
          tottering wonder 
old snow the dismayed 

   i awaken a third 
       begin toward winter and 
    gnash it up
splash on think 
      must rise 
come to the trail behind 
and down 
          my nostrils 

and which 
       way to 
   begin the seventh day

“Another scholar of male hysteria, Charcot’s disciple Emile Batault, observed that hysterical men in the Sâlpetrière’s special ward were ‘timid and fearful men, whose gaze is neither lively not piercing, but rather, soft, poetic, and languorous. Coquettish and eccentric, they prefer ribbons and scarves to hard manual labor.'” Elaine Showalter
