2 by Lorine Niedecker - "the recommended melon"

The radio talk this morning
was of obliterating
the world

I notice fruit flies rise
from the rind
of the recommended

J.F.Kennedy after
the Bay of Pigs

To stand up—

black-marked tulip
not snapped by the storm

'I've been duped by the experts'

—and walk
the South Lawn

(1963, Lorine Niedecker)
