Piazza di Spagna

Rain enlightened by verse

listening

as if

dropped

over

the awning

deliberately       

to

the

steps

where imaginary geraniums

pucker

red.

 

O hopeful monsters

reading

in the library

 

unrhymed words

mourn for a universe

shaken to its core by

Pound

shifted

precariously

by vulgar wit

so not even the

 

rain

can

be

enjoyed.
