Robert Duncan

from Robert Duncan's Ground Work: Before the War:

Dante Études Book One [excerpt]


. . .

but our own

"is that which we acquire without
any rule"     for love of it

                     "imitating our nurses"

From the beginning,    color
and light, my nurse;      sounding waves
and air, my nurse;      animal presences
my nurse;   Night, my nurse .

      out of hunger,  instinctual
      craving,    thirst for "knowing",

      toward oracular teats.
