A fight against ego—that I'm absolutely losing

Thank you, Ezra Pound

I resolve to be better men

than the tripe what came before me—

the unheady scowls that mangled

a century of minds; the quivering mass

of un-courage before guns ungutted;

the tea-timing termagants whose

3 o'clock wails still curdle from

the greenbacked Gehry—

but ezra taught me better.

pull down thy vanity, he wagged

with two feet in the fire and one finger

through the sane:

again, i say, pull down.
