No Longer White


I bled on my copy

of O’Hara’s Lunch Poems

on the page

in the poem

How to get there

smeared crimson

on the line

I’m crying with

delight thru

invisible tears

and inaudible sobs

and its intricate

individual pathways

of white

are no longer

white

I am no longer

    I tried to log a comment using my new wordpress password but it still doesn’t work. The two new poems are really interesting.This one reminds me af a book Norman Mailer published in 1952, The White Negro. It’s about the birth of hip.
