Boy Breaking Glass

Rating: 4.3
To Marc Crawford
from whom the commission
Whose broken window is a cry of art
(success, that winks aware
as elegance, as a treasonable faith)
is raw: is sonic: is old-eyed première.
Our beautiful flaw and terrible ornament.
Our barbarous and metal little man.

“I shall create! If not a note, a hole.
If not an overture, a desecration.”

CONGRATULATIONS on being chosen as the Modern Poem Of The Day. Hooray to the family of the late poetess. I always enjoy reading her poems, her observations are always very keen, like: Who has not Congress, lobster, love, luau, the Regency Room, the Statue of Liberty, runs. A sloppy amalgamation. A mistake. A cliff. Scintillating! 5*****.

'The only sanity is a cup of tea. The music is in minors. Each one other is having different weather.' - loved this observation. Congratulations to the poet, posthumously, for the well deserved honour of having her poem selected as the 'Modern Poem of the Day'!
