The lordly and isolate Satyrs—look at them come in

on the left side of the beach

like a motorcycle club! And the handsomest of them,

the one who has a woman, driving that snazzy


Wow, did you ever see even in a museum

such a collection of boddisatvahs, the way

they come up to their stop, each of them

as though it was a rudder

the way they have to sit above it

and come to a stop on it, the monumental solidity

of themselves, the Easter Island

they make of the beach, the Red-headed Men


These are the Androgynes,

the Fathers behind the father, the Great Halves

From The Lordly and Isolate Satyrs by Charles Olson (1910 - 1970)
