 “Plagiarism is necessary. It is implied in the idea of progress. It clasps the author’s sentence tight, uses his expressions, eliminates a false idea, replaces it with the right idea.”

– Comte de Lautréamont

VIII. For Guillaume Apollinaire

 

 

Fording the flooded causeway 

bridging the bleeding gap 

across the corner of my eye -  

 

& every time I cross again

dark river & the shadow shores

cold bells rejoice & praise 

these cinders of unreason: 

 

invincible April eyes

beaming their gentle verdict

as storm clouds burst asunder
