Dick Allen – Back among the Living


Back among the living, recovered from my sickness
or past lives, or both, however you want to read me,

I seek out stone fences. I try to amuse. I wander
here and there beneath Earth’s great blue skies.

The you not there.
The you I think of beneath yellow leaves.

The vast waters flow past its back-yard.

Daily Quote: 

‘Use no superfluous word, no adjective, which does not reveal something. Don’t use such an expression as ‘dim land of peace.’ It dulls the image. It mixes an abstraction with the concrete. It comes from the writer’s not realising that the natural object is always the adequate symbol. Go in fear of abstractions.’ – Ezra Pound
