Wallace Stevens: The Click Of Marbled Orbs

(Sonnet as Keynote to WS)

The stout man puffs on his Havana cigar
And picks canary chords on his blue guitar,
Fashions flawed words and spindrift sounds
Into day-glow verbs and glass-blown nouns.
How much the notion of a supreme fiction
Derives from bric-a-brac and spiffy diction
None knows. Say his thickest absolutes
Derive from blue rotundities of fruits:
His crispest jugglery performs the feat
Of hardening stealthy points into concrete
Trombones, sausage-makers, cattle skulls,
And pettifogging buds. His monocle's
Univocal, a prop ...

Rural Free Delivery

Comatose with heat, the night slumps,
incubus over the clotted lake. Berserk
crickets, ubiquitous, chirr;
a frenzied moth pungs the screens.

No mail.

Crusts of lichen knit stone walls
and climb the shins of oaks stripped
