Sunday Sentence: The Darkening Trapeze by Larry Levis

Simply put, the best sentence(s) I’ve read this past week, presented out of context and without commentary.

The only surviving son of Jesus Christ was Karl Marx.
You can tell by the last letter of his name,
Which has the shape & frail balance of an overturned cross

On a windswept hillside.

“Elegy With a Darkening Trapeze Inside It”
from The Darkening Trapeze: Last Poems by Larry Levis
