Charles Olson -The Songs of Maximus: Song 1

                     colored pictures
of all things to eat: dirty
postcards
               And words, words, words
all over everything
                                              No eyes or ears left
to do their own doings (all
invaded, appropriated, outraged, all senses
including the mind, that worker on what is
                                                                  And that other sense
made to give even the most wretched, or any of us, wretched,
that consolation (greased
                                        lulled
even the street-cars
song
