Quote of the day

I get everything in footnotes –
Second-hand, used up


Meaning depleted
To a dull projectile weight


Damaging in impact
And sinister disreputation


That disguises elaborate architectures
In an image of itself, the ivy swallows
Shivering, in dark green exultation


The way a word evaporates
Spoken too often and too fast 


In that aphasic staccato
Of unceasing railway cars


Crossing points and telegraph lines
In bird-like chitter-chatter


A name murmured on the phone
In  hard magnified breaths


Nevertheless misunderstood 


Irreducible as time-worn stones


With all the bold effacement 
Of that immovable wisdom
