I have a secret life
that even I don't know about yet.



Louis Zukofsky had reach like a helicopter

That man was a wild one. He was real tall. He got his first taste of a poetic community when he was young and he sent 'a poem beginning 'the'' to ezra pound overseas. Ezra found such vigor in the poems that he actually responded to Zuk and told published his poem in a short lived publication pound had started called the exile. he is very much on the outskirts of the poetry community. However, Zukofsky is credited with the term objectivist poetry. They were putting together an edition of poetry magazine, and it was an objectivist issue. Zuk reformated an old essay about charles reznikoff to speak more generally about the movement. Other notable objectivists include Lorine Niedecker, Carl Rakosi, and George Oppen.

Here is a Niedecker poem:

from Come In

the men leave the car
to bring us green-white lilies
by woods
These men are our woods
yet I grieve

I'm swamp
as against a large pine-spread-
his clear No marriage
no marriage
