Hart Crane, reduced


Hart Crane, Reduced

He rejected lifesavers
As a blow against his father
And his mothers colored vagina.

He liked Melville
But not for the words;
He liked the bigness of the whale.

His bridge erected
His tomb of frosted coils
His cold leap into forgetfulness

All a written cry for unknown help.

Mike Brady 2005
