lyrics

Beyond words or destinations,
visual and multiplying,
intricate and persistent,
they found a faraway place in Paris.
Its potential splendour hid sequels and contrary sex
in the early hours of 1960.
Proclivities of struggle and synthesis
within the most complete utopia
of fire and speed.
Dream letters were drowned in invisible stars.
Silent suburbs of Jazz and primitive hell
were spontaneously glimpsed
in rigid cities in which
these souvenirs were read
at t he Chicago Public Library
shu ddering
loosely
on the avenue between
Greene and Zion.
These are the definitions of the palace of signs.
These are the masks with which
I hitchhiked across the wonderland
and travelled by radio to resemble that mask
eccentric and boundless
in the image of you.
Past stairs and doorways,
past Afro-American ruins,
bamboo by the dozen
among those denizens of marvellous film.
Dead
yet actually distant. Exhilarating
like dissident blues swung from the Zydeco
to the brutal suburbs of Pharaoh Sanders.
Emerging from light
into some literary response.
