Gary Snyder quotes - 30 of
on a roost of furs No bird in a bird-book, black as the sun.
Wearing a spotted fawnskin
sleeping under trees ...
All beaded with dew
dawn grass runway ...
The white gulls south of Victoria
catch tossed crumbs in midair. When anyone hears the Catbird he gets lonesome.
Stiff springy jumps down the snowfields
Head held back, forefeet out, Balls tight in a tough hair sack
How rare to be born a human being!
Wash him off with cedar-bark and milkweed ...
My long hair was tucked up under a cap
I'd left the earring in the car.
I recalled when I worked in the woods
and the bars of Madras, Oregon. ...
I came back to myself,
To the real work, to "What is to be done."
a big picture of K. Marx with an axe,
"Where I cut off one it will never grow again." ...
