Best Poem of Doren Robbins

For Pablo Neruda (Elegy)

Lean men,
broad shouldered men,
I see them in the newspaper
with their perfectly styled hair
and their sagging inquisitive eyes
and the gold bars on the epaulets of their uniforms
that shine even there is no light—
they took you down, Neruda,
it didn’t matter to them
that you emerged from the
birthplace of shadows—
it didn’t matter to them
that you imitated the moon with words
for a woman, or that you screamed at the blood
on the factories
of the poor—
they simply wanted you dead—
you were weak,
you were old,
you saw it coming,...

Against Angels

Somebody asked me
but I'm not going
to argue about

the topic of the soul,
deduce or repeat
inductive facts

for its evidence.
