Heathen Rage

Listening to Flannery O’Connor speak,

is hearing the salt of the earth,

speak in highfalutin tongue, while

a slight tapping hits the roof of your



In 1959, sympathetic pangs of vocal

locks, trapt above grotesquely-crafted

creatures of faith and charity and anger

and angst, and anger an angst, perambulated



In 1964 all that rose converged.
