Jean-Louis Wept

“I cried in the Cathedral of the Savior to hear the choir boys sing a gorgeous old thing, while angels seemed to be hovering around—”

Jack Kerouac, “Big Trip to Europe”

Jean-Louis wept
Affects and effects
Choir boys sang
Sending a pang
In lonesome heart
Romanesque art
Lonesome travels
One unravels
Cezanne’s greens
Baptistery scenes
Smokyblue hills
Rust reds fulfill
Road visions
Vermouth rhythms
Lucid liquid diamond
Infants understanding silence
Angels sing
Angels sing
Lonesome travels
Weeping unravels
