William Seaton


In Évora St. Francis’ grand old church
has chapels made of heaps of human bones
at rest, now settled after life’s long search.
They spoke with warm inviting tones,
And knowing more than Francis did of hell,
“We wait,” they say, “for you to come as well.”

WILLIAM SEATON IS AUTHOR OF Spoor of Desire: Selected Poems and a forthcoming book of Dada translations from German. He produces the Poetry on the Loose Reading/Performance Series and maintains a literary blog at williamseaton.blogspot.com.
