Spiritual Noise

“Ambitious boys
Whose big lines swell
With spiritual noise,

Despise me not!”

–J.V. Cunningham

 

 

In his head, there was terrible weather.
Every tree there rolled off like a feather.
He had Sturm. He had Drang.
What a mental King Kong!
His lines rose — but did not come together.

 

 

–Tom Riley
