USA


US/USA



O what limb-rending pains in furrows by thy lightnings rent.

This is eternal death, and the torment long foretold.



William Blake, "America, A Prophecy"





East, at midnight the sun falls, and all

Congress is in purdah,

eating caviar; fish sweat perfumes the hall.

Yma Sumac steams cha chi cha,

bison blues;  for the West her story has no news.
