Basil Bunting

(1900-1985 / England)

Chorus Of Furies

Guarda mi disse, le feroce Erine


Let us come upon him first as if in a dream,
anonymous triple presence,
memory made substance and tally of heart’s rot:
then in the waking Now be demonstrable, seem
sole aspect of being’s essence,
coffin to the living touch, self’s Iscariot.
