d.a. levy, Cleveland poet
d.a. levy, poet (1942-1968)



A LINE FOR THE HAWK FACED GOD
WHO CARRIED THE SUN AT DAWN

he must have been
a master of words
but now covered
in tombs of black and gold
he listens
and no one hears
his laughter like gunfire
LATER
when i asked the prescription
for being a poet
he said:
                “take 100 small scorpions
            set them loose in the solar plexus”

try explaining that to a psychiatrist!
