Una poesia potrebbe continuare per sempre – di Lisa Sammarco

[LISA SAMMARCO]

this ocean, humiliating in its disguises

This ocean, humiliating in its disguises / Tougher than anything. / No one listens to poetry. The ocean / Does not mean to be listened to. A drop / Or crash of water. It means / Nothing. / It / Is bread and butter / Pepper and salt. The death / That young men hope for. Aimlessly / It pounds the shore. White and aimless signals. No / One listens to poetry.
(Jack Spicer, 1964)
