No Bed of Roses
(For my father, Edward Israel Strongin, psychologist and for his first cousins, Harry Strongin,
pediatrician, and Elliot Hochstein: skill, distinction, compassion: the doctors)
"Larch Point" a psychiatric wing of New York Hospital. Cornell Medical Center Lace-print of late suCcer elms on lawns. Wing shades knolls folk walk on. Daddy, home from war, works at the Larch. 1947. I see a war closer to hand his squinty-eyed child in buster browns. Apple of his eye? Soil in Europe still smolders. I see blue saw at eyes. There are faces I picture pressed to windows in those rooms. Susie back home has just been returned from doll hospital. Broken she has gone into the landscape: having suffered multiple skull fractures right eye hanging kapok stomach radio "Mama!" Mama!" fixed again, one wooden arm amputated at the elbow. In three years the parent hospital will be my home.: No hip-pain for the time, Dolly. No scoliosis. Child-Atlas shoulders waiting for wooden crutches for legs. Like scatter bomb shattering plate-glass in a London bank. Follow your bliss but not if it leads to this. We had broken the mirror one week before I contracted poliomyelitis Splinters of looking glass shafted us, the bone Cancer (shadows & masses) does not go with champagne. paralysis goes with opiate dreams a fever that shoot up the spine to bulb of brain stem: cellulose negatives x-rays developed in blue rooms the spinal tap tells the story: Mother phones daddy. We live near the three-stories. . . Diagnosed under an elm, I must be moved to the cathedral of stone. Glass slides under microscope. Invisible made visible: virus in ballet tulle A tomboy childhood traded for traction. uninvited, it stayed from the old into the new century: pristine unlike porcelain dolls, collections of Royal Doulton & Copenhagen: photograph albums furred with coal-soots & particles of time. Neither Mother, father, nor doll back home could atone.

Arthur Rimbaud un résumé

Arthur Rimbaud est né dans Charleville, France. Le père d'Arthur Rimbaud était un dirigeant de l'armée Française, et a abandonné la famille Rimbaud quand Arthur avait six ans. Arthur Rimbaud était un étudiant brillant, et sa première poésie a été éditée dans une revue française quand il avait 16 ans.

L'année suivante, Arthur Rimbaud s'est rebellé contre sa mère, et a pris un train pour aller à Paris. Arthur Rimbaud a joint la garde nationale brièvement pendant la guerre Franco-Prussienne mais est rapidement parti pour errer à Paris et en Belgique.

Arthur Rimbaud a été pris par la police et est revenu à sa maison a Charleville. En attendant, Rimbaud écrivait des poésie d'une manière impréssionante. Arthur Rimbaud avait conclu que les poètes doivent traverser la moralité et la contrainte conventionnelles afin d'explorer une expérience humaine.

Arthur Rimbaud avait envoyé certaines de ses poésies au poète Paul Verlaine le Symboliste, c'est Vernaile qui a envoyé de l'argent a Arthur Rimbaud pour voyager à Paris et pour rester avec lui et son épouse. Verlaine a laissé son épouse en 1872 avec laquelle il a habité a Montmartre a coté du maintenent métro Lamarck Caulincourt, pour Rimbaud.

Cette année, Arthur Rimbaud a édité son premier livre, nouvelles poésies. Verlaine et Rimbaud se sont disputés, et après qu'un combat en juillet 1873, Verlaine a tiré Rimbaud avec u flingue dans le poignet de Rimbaud et a été condamné à deux ans en prison.

Rimbaud a édité une saison dans l'enfer en 1873, et des illuminations en 1886. La plupart de ses meilleures poésies ont été écrites avant qu'il ait eu 20 ans. Arthur Rimbaud a passé la dernière décennie de sa vie errant l'Afrique et le Moyen-Orient. En 1891, Arthur Rimbaud a contracté la gangrène et est mort à Marseille, France en rentrant en France!

'Ground Zero'
Bombay ash falling like new snow on a black man wrapped in the American Flag tears flooding his eyes, stars of silver on his back, Lady Liberty standing still with a great pale flame; a gift from France. Fear, thick as an early morning fog after a Summer's rain, the screams of pain lay open like a wound, sounds like Israel in many ways, not just another day, no one can explain it, no one can at all. The streets are busy with Heroes, mothers stand there, they are the mothers of the disappeared, who have prayed for peace; year after year. Fire and smoke can be seen for miles around. Nothing is clear anymore, nothing makes sense. This is America 'home of the free land of the brave' this can not be, this can not be, I over heard someone say, it was a man from Russia come to trade in the USA. And I wonder myself what J.F.K. Jr. or John Lennon or Albert Einstein would say, would think of a world on the brink? Bin Laden did not take into account that day that this is America the 'melting pot' of the world with its many colours like a sweet rainbow and people from every part of the earth, from all walks of life, even his own men, women and babes, are here and call this wonderful place home, this is what makes America Great; not its money, not its power.
