In Response - Poem by Frederick Kesner

From: An Elegy by Roger Roughton,1961-41
David Gascoyne,1937-42
Erich Kessner,28 Aug 90

Is like a clumsy wound that will not heal:

To succeeding readers:

No other way I can
reach Mr. Gascoyne.
don't even know if an
apology or something is
required of me. I'm
just one struggling
Third World poet
whose mused clumsy
muse accidentally(sic)
tripped on the
phrase one innocent
afternoon 1987….

(4 june 1990)

Life knows no coincidence

even as I now sprawl over

your stumbling block;

You feel so much at

one time

& unabashedly peddle

your torment

the next….

28 Sept.1990
