John Wieners

White Rum and Limes

Bulgarian lilies, trans
sylvanian tulips on a
rose quartz stair-case bend
beneath sunrise Hun-
garian roses twisted to shape

a balcony green iron before
the lawn in Madison, where Rita
Nolan fixes brunch for Friday's 
flight to Washington, D.C.

the twelve hours of desire above the cruise
through vacant chambers where
J. Foster Dulles sips a martini, anx-
ious to depart the blowing windbirds

talk of Farouk and Millia Gluck.

[July 4, 1970]
