CIDES

After
birth
for the affluent
is mostly
-cides: bactericides
insecticides
herbicides
rodenticides
but too rarely
spermicides
and all too rarely
suicide.
Thus almost all of us
are war-criminals.
 
Anthony Weir
   
 

   
   
 

  46.     

Coat-trailing

Jean Genet said:
'the author of a beautiful poem
is always dead'.

But beautiful poems
are also always dead
whereas a poet once lived
in his head.

Great poetry now is what
people can't bear to read.

Great poets are dead and dutiful.
The dead are always beautiful.
 
Anthony Weir
   
 

   
   
 

  47.     

Coda (for Suchoon Mo)

Great is Death
We are his
urgent breath
his eager pus.
Thinking
we're in the thick of life
we do not see him
blinking
in the thick of us.
 
Anthony Weir
   
 

   
   
 

  48.     

Compassion

Compassion is flame
and the ashes of the fire.
Compassion is crossed fingers behind your back
as your shoulders hunch like a crone's.
Compassion is the corpse buried in your eyes.
Compassion is the burying of stones.
 
Anthony Weir
