(PDF) The Collected Poems of Weldon Kees BY Weldon Kees
I haven t read any Kees in a couple of years but remember loving itso carefully written delicate and bleak damned bleak Like many others I found my way to Weldon Kees 1914 1955 via Donald Justice who almost single handedly rescued Kees from obscurity Don Paterson in his anthology 101 Sonnets called Kees one of the most unremittingly bleak Ä poets ever to wield theen Or in the image of Justice The wall cracks the stain spreads he does not budge from his chairKees was a man of many talents not only as a The ABC of Communism poet but as an abstract expressionistainter an art critic a jazz musician an organizer of aleatoric happenings and a novelist But essentially he is a man of mystery disappearing in 1955 resumably one of those inscrutable suicides whose last step was off the orange steel cables of the Golden Gate bridge James Reidel in his recent biography Vanished Act illuminates but does not resolve the mystery If you want an immediate introduction check out Dana Gioia s excellent essay The Cult of Weldon Kees Kees was a formalist of sorts His oetry has a stern almost classical olish but is deliberately destabilized by his subversive techniue His sonnet For My Daughter aints a shattering When The Light Went Out picture of horror and renunciation in 14 lines And like almost everyone else who knows hisoetry I m drawn to his terrifying Robinson Hans Brinker, or the Silver Skates poems which convey the desperate discriminating highly strung spirit of the man Here s one of my favoritesAspects of RobinsonRobinson at cards at the Algonuin a thinBlue light comes down once outside the blindsGray men in overcoats are ghosts blownast the doorThe taxis streak the avenues with yellow orange and redThis is Grand Central Mr RobinsonRobinson on a roof above the Heights the boatsMourn like the lost Water is slate far downThrough sounds of ice cubes dropped in glass an osteopathDressed for the links describes an old Intourist tour Here s where old Gibbons jumped from RobinsonRobinson walking in the Park admiring the elephantRobinson buying the Tribune Robinson buying the Times RobinsonSaying Hello Yes this is Robinson SundayAt five I d love to Pretty well And you Robinson alone at Longchamps staring at the wallRobinson afraid drunk sobbing RobinsonIn bed with a Mrs Morse Robinson at home Decisions Toynbee or luminol Where the sunShines Robinson in flowered trunks eyes towardThe breakers Where the night ends Robinson in East Side barsRobinson in Glen laid jacket Scotch grain shoesBlack four in hand and oxford button #downthe jeweled and silent watch that winds itself #jeweled and silent watch that winds itself brief Case covert topcoat clothes for spring all coveringHis sad and usual heart dry as a winter leaf IF THIS ROOM IS OUR WORLDIf this room is.
