Poesy plus Polemics

princeton-ivy-club Princeton University – Nassau Hall

cracks and desolate point-voids

in classically disciplined brickwork

would topple these obsolete chimneys

except for their tentative bindings of ivy

with roots in enlightened sectarian soils

now over-climbed grafted to secular

vine-stems producing a poor variegated

leaf weakened and straining with dint

of their self-imposed task to secure

this precarious crumbling masonry

standing profanely new cultural norms

to the merciless test of intelligent time

From my book Bohemian Scents
