Poems: Two for Izzy




1965

for I.F. Stone


your words

hissydiplomat

black flowers

ly ing


onvillager s



upon pools of fire




1995

jews and palestinians

and subtle Vietnam

full of undergroundpathways

and death

and the NewDeal

and the blacklistatPM

and days of fear and sorrow

and joy and So crates

- it is doubtful, Ezra Pound reports


you must, they sa y


that even their manure

be a


too much laughter

too much


will be rich enough


talking with Soviet ambassador

where J Edgar drankhimself


to keep grass growing

SOVIETagent

to sleep


over their


too much joy

e'en in darkness


graves
