Correspondence With Jack Rivers


Lovely jaws monylender’s flesh
History jeers at us who have hope
Home we go from Roman lands
From events proving the meaning of mere words
The lifted hands also carry life
High on the palm, where borrowers riot
Fullbellied, trying to test this season
A theory of famine
Inspired with enthusiasm
Searches for lost armadas
In the sea of the Bermudas or
The philosophy of history where
Life is deep and wide and made in Germany.
