Selected Poems

Flags and Banners


Chuck Stebelton

 

The crowd upon their rambling exercise

And their feet were straight feet

and the sole of their feet was like



the sole of a calf's foot; and they sparkled

like the copper of burnished brass.

And they had the hands of a man under



their wings on their

four sides, and they four had their faces

and their wings. Their wings were joined



to another corrective;

they turned not when they went, then went

every one straight forward.
