    Agree with Grant here - what a turn of phrase - truly inspired.

    Where is Tanner? He posted a beautiful poem every two minutes, then disappeared.

    Tanner. Thanks for posting this. I'm reading more Tanner and also some more Georg Trakl tonight and then a little more Tanner.

    I particularly like the second stanza, with the hatted stone thumbs and hoary stars.

    In Memory of Georg Trakl

    The flesh is a sweet melancholy
    Like a piece of bruised fruit
    What the crows unravel at darkness

    In a nearby cemetery tonight all
    The stone thumbs are wearing hats
    The silent dust of hoary stars

    I hear the ground murmur your
    Name as I trudge slowly home
    Or perhaps it is only a dark angel

    Of memory closing the pages of
    My baedeker telling me ignorance
    Is the only guide I will ever need
Working...
