The Ecphorizer

A Longing Comes Upon Them
Ray Tumbleson

Issue #36 (August 1984)

A longing comes upon them
not to be defeated, a desire
To see nothing, to be seen a yellow flower
In water in a glass.


No black-caped melancholic
Ever heard so stoic, uncomplaint
A dialect of grievance, vengeance, hearing nothing
A remorselessness.

Two Women
Ray Tumbleson

Issue #36 (August 1984)

The elegant simplicity of a mental patient
Respects buildings standing. Out of a homeless river
It draws the strength of scullers. Out of the future
It draws articulation, each day a joint,
Each memory vestigal and needed.


A decisionmaker, unlocatable,
Flies, is driven, sees two weddings in two weeks,
Decides duties. The rights of man are unverifiable.
Out of them, concrete obligation may be derived
by the intelligent and capable.
