of any book—

if your book

is smaller than that,

try page 1—

there’s a grass angel

and your metaphysics

burns up

smiling like a kiss

with anyone at all—

'  It is dangerous to leave written that which is badly written. A chance word, upon paper, may destroy the world. Watch carefully and erase, while the power is still yours, I say to myself, for all that is put down, once it escapes, may rot its way into a thousand minds, the corn become a black smut, and all libraries, of necessity, be burned to the ground as a consequence.'

WC Williams in Paterson

'Seen in light of the classic-academic, the conservative-institutional new, hysteria is a disease, a disturbance of mind—but mind here is the public peace. Hysteria is ominous with riot.'

Robt Duncan in The H.D. Book
