thru the blue wall
                    martin a. abramson  © 1965


torches
thrust owls
from their
blue tapestries


************

sun-postered swamp
stone voices
buy old clothes

************

world of echoes

like a box
of sounding boards

************


sun lasers
scorch
through our
cool tenements

************

a glossy summer
in the black park

*************

in trainfalls
nitrous windows

crumpled crabs

**************

serpents
swimming in neon
between words

**************

a green radio
plays blues
for a lonely
zoo

****************

You
                     helmsman
lonely of stars

borne
thru the blue wall

beyond freedom

soaring
above the clouds

above the sky

****************

saloon system
crawling to
coalsack nebula

lonely nets
snag
clumps of light
in sinfall

so can a soft-souled girl
touching free-depths
redeem deerslayer?

*****************

in sunken pools
in darker rooms of rain

they are moving

drinking

dry light

******************

as reptiles
coil in chlorine

a dragon-bat
explores the
naked freedom

between worlds

*****************

heard
Jonah's weep

from vast
raw sea flesh

sigh

******************

smoke
                  time
sea-gull
white bird
where is the sea

                  the random wash
                   the huge rhythm
                   the free leap
                                 sunward
                                          shining?
