Lay for the Day
13th July

1936: the birthday of Albert Ayler, saxophonist, still avant garde after all these years.


A.A.


A bell ringing the brim of sunup
a screen of wings
shoaling
, uttermost
, express
, shooting the blue
, fish
or adjectival horn
of names
invisible in the fire

 

John Gibbens,
from The Improvised Version, Vol. 1
