Ezra Pound

Fratres Minores

Ezra Weston Loomis Pound was an American expatriate poet and critic of the early modernist movement.






With minds still hovering above their testicles
Certain poets here and in France
Still sigh over established and natural fact
Long since fully discussed by Ovid.
They howl. They complain in delicate and exhausted metres
That the twitching of three abdominal nerves
Is incapable of producing a lasting Nirvana.
