Poetry Spotlight: Galaxy Love by Gerald Stern

30231757

This selection is taken from the poem “Orson”

Orson Welles has been my philosopher

for the last few weeks now and if he’s just a

phenomenon and doesn’t really have a system

as Spinoza did or Anaxagorus, he

at least is consistent even if some of the things

he talks about are immensely unimportant

except to actors maybe or gossipmongers.
