Today's poem is by David Brennan

The White Visitation

is "The Swan of Mantua" in reverse negative: the
ugly duckling. Within itself an elegant future in all
senses of afterlife. The Second Situation says all
symbols be ignored, all censure. Just hold down
the fort. Just grow a beard and wear glasses. Just
talk trash. In the deep of night go to sleep and die
amongst the stars. It is doubtful it will happen so.
So doubtful.
