Summary Of My Poems About "1978"

Aurora:  that I

can post these lines defies

and defeats the ghost

of that false dawn you imposed

some forty-one years ago.


You said, on that day,

that our lives could not join in

relationship; and

walking away was the best

solution and metaphor.


Like Pound's book of that

name, so many Personae

altered you, and like

his Cantos, your Canto proved

a forgetable failure.


But I have never

forgotten that blank absence---

your creation of

deconsrtruction.  To that I

laugh, intact, and thus forgive.
