Poem by Lola Ridge


Scandal


Aren't there bigger things to talk about
Than a window in Greenwich Village
And hyacinths sprouting
Like little puce poems out of a sick soul?
Some cosmic hearsay
As to whomit can't be Mars! put the moonthat way.
Or what winds do to canyons
Under the tall stars
Or even
How that old roué, Neptune,
Cranes over his bald-head moons
At the twinkling heel of a sky-scraper.
