POEM: Memories in the Midnight Deeps

POEM: Memories in the Midnight Deeps

“Indefinite Divisibility” (1942) by Yves Tanguy

T.S. Eliot said,

Midnight shakes the memory

As a madman shakes a dead geranium

I know–exactly–what he means

Tragedy lurks in the midnight deeps

It hides, free from consciousness

It hides, outside memory

A catastrophic tick that has no echo

Fleeting images and emotional residue

are all amble home in the morning
