Mina Loy (1882-1966)

Mina Loy shoots from the hip

Farewell
           to tame things
love is intensity
           of feeling
of action
           of here and now
there is no past
           no future

Never confuse
           the horizon
with the event
           time is a joke
those lips
           may never be
proffered
           again

Mina Loy revisited

Mina Loy

Absolute
intensity
of activity
in her
consummately
congested
cosmos

No time
for time
and space
pure
unpossessed
intimate

existence

her life
an unfolding
soulstorm
her beauty
simply

in being

John Lyons
