LYNN STRONGIN
Many Tales
(For my father, Edward Israel Strongin, psychologist and for his first cousins,
Harry Strongin, pediatrician, and Elliot Hochstein: skill, distinction, compassion: the doctors)
in the small building more than three stories. For what can you flick the body? The svelte mother-hospital, the Madonna of stone, mother of sorrows lived was in the big city strata of windows banks of dark quarried granite: glass & brass towering layers of compressed suffering: like compacted mica, or gold: contagion heads above & shouldering other buildings narrowly nobly each aisle held its own lights reflecting in the East River. Lovers could be heard from hospital rooms chatting amicably along the suSser river, a patient could imagine them arm linked-in arm. * Squat as a fruit-cake step-daughter in the country 300-bed facility where father works. The little one reflects in water farmland where sheep blaze struck white matches this is a wing but intense as a Siberian power station. * Stone Cake in the middle of landscape: emerald, unfurled white frosting no candles no courtyard angels. A custard but no child would eat it. A storm lantern it could be shattered glass with core-flame burning got in my eye a shard it blew into my delicate one green eye, skin broken. DESPITE RAVAGES of German aircraft & town planners, evidence of life of 18th Century London remains in its surviving buildings. Bloomsbury as the first square. Lord of St Albans rested his imitation a little later with St James Square but heart & mind on two-scale dishes balancing were outlined like the allotments whose terrace enclosed a liberty stamp garden: every which-way the shapes came up, the colours rang down.

WARD KELLEY
The Visuals of It
It appears to be shaped like breasts or buttocks, the repetition of plumpness or rounded protuberances of flesh, half living, half ephemeral. Prone figure eights, abdomens of wasps, the dead ones struggle, struggle, to convey a succinct image: half, half. I am poorly made for this business of fielding the grounders of the dead ones, and sometimes I feel it is indeed my mind that is half by half. "Half by half," the dead ones nod then flit off.
