    What He Thought

    We were supposed to do a job in Italy
    and, full of our feeling for
    ourselves (our sense of being
    Poets from America) we went
    from Rome to Fano, met
    the Mayor, mulled a couple
    matters over. The Italian literati seemed
    bewildered by the language of America: they asked us
    what does "flat drink" mean? and the mysterious
    "cheap date" (no explanation lessened
    this one's mystery). Among Italian writers we

    could recognize our counterparts: the academic,
    the apologist, the arrogant, the amorous,
    the brazen and the glib. And there was one
    administrator (The Conservative), in suit
    of regulation gray, who like a good tour guide
    with measured pace and uninflected tone
    narrated sights and histories
    the hired van hauled us past.
    Of all he was most politic--
    and least poetic-- so
    it seemed. Our last
    few days in Rome
    I found a book of poems this
    unprepossessing one had written: it was there
    in the pensione room (a room he'd recommended)
    where it must have been abandoned by
    the German visitor (was there a bus of them?) to whom
    he had inscribed and dated it a month before. I couldn't
    read Italian either, so I put the book
    back in the wardrobe's dark. We last Americans

    were due to leave
    tomorrow. For our parting evening then
    our host chose something in a family restaurant,
    and there we sat and chatted, sat and chewed, till,
    sensible it was our last big chance to be Poetic, make
    our mark, one of us asked

    "What's poetry?
    Is it the fruits and vegetables
    and marketplace at Campo dei Fiori

    or the statue there?" Because I was
    the glib one, I identified the answer
    instantly, I didn't have to think-- "The truth
    is both, it's both!" I blurted out. But that
    was easy. That was easiest
    to say. What followed taught me something
    about difficulty,

    for our underestimated host spoke out
    all of a sudden, with a rising passion, and he said:

    The statue represents
    Giordano Bruno, brought
    to be burned in the public square
    because of his offence against authority, which was to say
    the Church. His crime was his belief
    the universe does not revolve around
    the human being: God is no
    fixed point or central government
    but rather is poured in waves, through
    all things: all things
    move. "If God is not the soul itself,
    he is the soul OF THE SOUL of the world." Such was
    his heresy. The day they brought him forth to die

    they feared he might incite the crowd (the man
    was famous for his eloquence). And so his captors
    placed upon his face
    an iron mask
    in which he could not speak.

    That is how they burned him.
    That is how he died,
    without a word,
    in front of everyone. And poetry--

    (we'd all put down our forks by now, to listen to
    the man in gray; he went on softly)-- poetry

    is what he thought, but did not say. read more »
