The fascists have entered the town
Sun like a late ripe peach
City says no
Asking the sun to come soon,
At dawn, when the heart
—And when the uneven ones had
risen from below interpreting the isinglass
After the double party
for the poorly loved
when the gleam in the hound's
Vital reading on politics, literature, and more in your inbox
