Untitled (1973)


by Marc Mangel


to be carried onto high

to face the infinite


of himself

of the Man

old but nothing which

is infinite

but untouchable

to grasp and grapple soul amidst

to fight and


unreal sweat

unfelt but there as was

the sweat of the


but to fight to a challenge if

even to lose

is the only joy is the

true way

to make the union

not by fleeing

upon the magic

carpet of the acid

but by the hard stairs to make

the final flight the all

total flight and fight

with the Man

January 1973
