    Epilogue

    Those blessèd structures, plot and rhyme—
    why are they no help to me now
    I want to make
    something imagined, not recalled?
    I hear the noise of my own voice:
    The painter's vision is not a lens,...

    Try to Praise the Mutilated World

    Try to praise the mutilated world.
    Remember June's long days,
    and wild strawberries, drops of rosé wine.
    The nettles that methodically overgrow
    the abandoned homesteads of exiles.
    You must...

    Elegy Written in a Country Churchyard

    The curfew tolls the knell of parting day,
    The lowing herd wind slowly o'er the lea,
    The plowman homeward plods his weary way,
    And leaves the world to darkness and to me.

    Now...

    Sitting with Others

    The front seats filled last. Laggards, buffoons,
    and kiss-ups falling in beside local politicos,
    the about to be honored, and the hard of hearing.

    No help from the middle, blenders and...

    What I Learned From the Incredible Hulk

    When it comes to clothes, make
    an allowance for the unexpected.
    Be sure the spare in the trunk
    of your station wagon with wood paneling

    isn’t in need of repair. A simple jean jacket
    says Hey,...

    Eightfold Chant

    Church of broken toasters and singed fuses,
    church of the dripping roof and chipped chimney stack,
    of the flooded garage and its split door,

    gas-hissing pipes and sibilant water heaters,

    Bleecker Street, Summer

    Brazilian telephone

    In the peach orchard in an old bathtub
    the children are standing someone
    in a bath of salt water, and one
    gently attaches electrodes
    to the nipples of the one
    in the bath. Out of the weeds runs...

    The Posture

    Of like importance is the posture too,

    Receive the leapings of their Males behind;

    A True Account of Talking to the Sun at Fire Island

    The Sun woke me this morning loud

    The young man, hardly more

    as if he were surveying a road,
    or feeding a length of wood into a saw:...

    Siren Song

    This is the one song everyone
    would like to learn: the song
    that is irresistible:

    the song that forces men
    to leap overboard in squadrons
    even though they see the beached skulls
