Dear Ones,

Here is an early poem written when I lived in San Francisco and worked downtown there …

THE FOUNTAIN
A Poem by Alice B. Clagett
amongst her early works

A fountain in continuous ejaculation
greets the spring

Futile trajectory
recycled to itself

Some small spilling onto
infertile grey stones
cemented to the city

.

Grow me grass in crannies
flowers beside you, fountain
try.

. . . . .
