Eads to Glinka

it said on one of the volumes of
the red encyclopedia in the bedroom
in Buffalo, defining an
incantatory spectrum. Who
was Eads? or should it be, What are
eads? or keats? And Glinka? Shopping bag lady
of the Grand Concourse, everybody knows Glinka?
Product, with coal and zinc,
of a European state?
Eads when I grew up I learned
was a designer of bridges.
Glinka was never the same after the war.

The Atlantic Monthly; June 1996; Eads to Glinka; Volume 277, No. 6; page 60.
