Sleep safe till tomorrow.”

“Well–
all things turn bitter in the end
whether you choose the right or
the left way
and–
dreams are not a bad thing.”

“Times change and forms and their meanings alter. Thus new poems are necessary. Their forms must be discovered in the living language of their day, or old forms, embodying exploded concepts, will tyrannize over the imagination.”

“I wanted to write a poem
that you would understand.
For what good is it to me
if you can’t understand it?”

“Forget all rules, forget all restrictions, as to taste, as to what ought to be said, write for the pleasure of it — whether slowly or fast — every form of resistance to a complete release should be abandoned.”

“It is summer, it is the solstice
the crowd is
cheering, the crowd is laughing
in detail
permanently, seriously
without thought.”

I like this shot.  It is very simple, green flu background and tulip.

The Tulip Bed

The May sun–whom
all things imitate–
that glues small leaves to
the wooden trees
shone from the sky
through bluegauze clouds
upon the ground.
Under the leafy trees
where the suburban streets
lay crossed,
with houses on each corner,
tangled shadows had begun
to join
the roadway and the lawns.
With excellent precision
the tulip bed
inside the iron fence
upreared its gaudy
yellow, white and red,
rimmed round with grass,
reposedly.

“I have discovered that most of
the beauties of travel are due to
the strange hours we keep to see them. . . .”
