    Kees deserves to be much better known. The New Yorker did publish many of his poems.

    One of America's greatest poets.

  • Pietro Roversi (2/19/2010 3:21:00 PM)

    True great poetry, like Dickinson, Stevens or Moore, hard to read but the reward is definitively there!

  • Lamont Palmer (11/25/2006 7:07:00 PM)

    Kees is probably the greatest obscure poet of the 20th century in American poetry. Nearly on par with Stevens in his words and music. -LP

The Furies

Not a third that walks beside me,
But five or six or more.
Whether at dusk or daybreak
Or at blinding noon, a retinue
Of shadows that no door
Excludes.--One like a kind of scrawl,
Hands scrawled trembling and blue,
A harelipped and hunchbacked dwarf
With a smile like a grapefruit rind,

[Hata Bildir]
