Contra Diction

Lionel Kearns
From:   Pointing. Toronto: Ryerson Press, 1967.


At worst I think poetry
only a hobby, an activity similar to
the youthful assembly
of silent model airplanes:
——my mother commenting: "So
constructive and it teaches something
too." My father at his guns,
clearing his throat in reply.
