Portrait Of The Nihilist As A Young Man

Like those astigmatic pupils,
Forster und his Frau,
he has read Nietzsche

obliquely, too early,
he has read Nietzsche
as his biography

and like Raskolnikov, miscasts
his smeared might
as the clear light

of a new dawn.
In the chthonic grey
of his iris

atrocities
pardon each other
over and over.
