a poem for yesterday

focal point or length

even at a nod clap slidden, old metric tick:
zap that one w a tear-filling, not to say so;
rattle cages, all across plenipotentiary waking—
aswoon w being in the middle as a spin ...

pick out one flip sense to time that hole sentry, or centurion
overbound underinterpreted, or a century,
under all words, The Pounded Era;
now phrases hide w a grit luck, it
depends: all word, all slip, all twist

Ezra Pound was born on October 30
