POEM OF THE DAY: Dove in the Arch

by Robert Desnos (1900 – 1945).

 

Dove in the Arch 

 

Cursed!

be the father of the bride

of the blacksmith who forged the iron for the axe

with which the woodsman hacked down the oak

from which the bed was carved

in which was conceived the great-grandfather

of the man who was driving the carriage

in which your mother met your father
