Historiography To Jason And B. Bailyn

bailyn stands among
the scattered-

of scattered
nouns. the microscopic
inky thorns

on alien vegetation
perhaps or
a poet who does not write in english;

(and virginian
is english)

bailyn laughs loudly

a strong nose at pamphlets

all well-and-
good if surveying is a lost-art

and then lesser arts are even
obscured more by the laser
quality of modern wind. the gray book
is broken by dagger shapes of red
and faces-
bailyn may or may not
have willed the interpretation only standing
by the

biography and calling it a field.
a grand field the kind hunters
are painted on. or soldiers.

statesmen, bailyn, prefer drawing rooms
