“Generals Die In Bed”
no time for diffidence; the dream
of death, ordinary:
and inconvenient, leaving debts
we should have left anyway
those ghosts bleed into history,
thickening everything; the next
step may lead anywhere:
choose carefully with whom you associate
-excerpt from The Lost Canadian, Vol.1, Early Poems, 3.99 ebook
in admiration of the WW1 book Generals Die In Bed by Charles Yale Harrison, pub 1930.
My very latest books – memorable, and mind-expanding new work: poems which truly mark a radical departure from previous work in tone, scope, and vision.
