Hither and Fro

 Hither and Fro

poem by e.e.cane

Jan 30, 2021


Carry hither and fro

regal thoughts-a-fallin,

world-moving detritus from a

head shaken

Rich ideas spreading as

blood under the warm sun—

freed of cape and crown,

the wealthy arrogance now 

drying as nettle and bone for

the wind to pick up


The good ideas were the harbinger

The canteen to preserve, protect, 

fell away as the earth to the

flapping of leathery wing and

nightmare lashing of tongue
