Treasure Island

Bill Knott

[Saint Geraud] (1940 - / Carson City, Michigan)

Fragments from the Beach

(Nonasyllabics)

In retrospect the tragic nature
of sea is a taste wept too daily,
too depleted by freedom's rupture;
the eyes have other secrets to see

and deeper use for the detritus
within us: the bright effluvium

[Hata Bildir]
