Rue Saint-Denis

In the Paris street
famous for at least 800 years
for comforts and deformities of flesh
a pretty, very sweet
and almost-fresh
young whore approached me:
I'll pleasure you
for just 100 francs, she said.
You have a tender face.
I touched her gently on the arm
and smilingly declined
her old recensions of the intimate
freak-show by which some choose
and some refuse
to propagate the race.
Anthony Weir



Trousers Of Internment

My pants
covered in patches,
were rinsed by my wife -
but the suffering wouldn't wash out.

Like faded days
my pants hung on the Collective's door
on the rusty nail of Internment.

And the wind brought me from far-off the memory
of the unerasable face of poverty.
Anthony Weir




After Hiroshima
all beauty is unbearable.
Light is the condensation
of darkness.

(8/6 = the sixth day of August, 'Hiroshima Day')
Anthony Weir



A Cold Eye

Wisdom is awareness
of the futility of communication
and the prodigality of the
communication of futility:
Wisdom is bareness.

Books are dead trees
and marketing and choked drains,
and poems are dead cells
from dying brains,

through whose intent, intention,
the vivid randomness of life and nature
has been turned to death
by planned inequity and inequality.
Anthony Weir
