A COLLECTION OF UNPUBLISHED POEMS FROM ONE OF THE MOST DISTINCTIVE POETIC VOICES OF THE TWENTIETH CENTURY

of an evening real as paint on canvas.
The kind that makes me ache to have the gift
for dusting off clichés:
not, make it new, but, see it, hear it, freshly.
The context (good morrow, haven’t we met in this context
      before?)
in which, squelch, a brush lifted a load
of pigment from the thick glass palette, and, concentrated,
as though he saw neither the work in hand nor the subject,
the painter began.
                                                   
—from “A Blue Shadow Painting”
