The end of 'The Endmorgan Quartet'

John Bjarne Grover

Luke 20.14: "But when the tenants saw him, they talked the matter over.
'This is the heir', they said. 'Let's kill him, and the inheritance will be ours'".

...and how the birth and clean repaired him
explicated for me what kind of work or God,
Leemon, Atta,
or maybe it is a polygon?

There's nothing square one.
Please give me the European reason.
That's Pound
to come back and have a look at it.

It wasn't long that I shamed last,
and we do have to sacrifice it, in some way or other.
The girl in the other phrase, I speak to,
being emotive.

John Backwards, the No(r)se,
are no real gay,
but I have got property.
Those has been made by the matrix.

The poem is from the end of The Endmorgan Quartet, written on 24 and 25 September 1998, before the last lines which I wrote on 26 and 27 September. Which means the 'Endmorgan Quartet' on 'time', not the whole quartet which was completed in 2005. The 16 lines may be seen as summing up the first part of the work, consisting of 4 nesting quartets.

I have given the poem a rather thorough discussion in the article 'Revelation in poetry'.
