Best Poem of Bill Knott

Escape Plan

I examine
my skin

searching for
the pore

with EXIT
over it

Read the full of Escape Plan

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]
