John F. Hulcoop (Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada: Talonbooks, [2014]). About this poem, Phyllis Webb wrote: "I once wrote a series of prison poems - not from prison, I'm glad to say - portraits of Socrates, Dostoevsky, Kropotkin, Ezra Pound. I have to ask, did I, did Tiff, have such a bad time in the womb, like Samuel Beckett who maintained he remembered it as a hellish confinement, that we are still working to expunge the memory? Ezra Pound, I don't have to tell you, the American poet who was captured by American soldiers in Italy during World War II, was accused of treason and held in a cage out in the open. Perhaps the vexing figure of Pound, particularly this image of him in the cage, attracts poets, novelists and playwrights not just because of his poetry but because an adventurous and serious writer is always testing limits, always shaking the bars of the cage of form."

Sometimes he gives me a pain in the ass, he also, with his pretensions. When he goes off the deep end he's just as bad as any mediocre as any other bum poet but when he is good he's a world beater. I love him deeply. On that score I have a poem for your next issue of Neon when you get around to it. It's about Pound written in one of my periods of disgust with him" (to Gilbert Sorrentino, 31 May 1956, quoted in The Collected Poems of William Carlos Williams.

He lived for the next 15 years between Venice and Rapallo, those two towns in Italy. This poem takes place in Venice in 1968, when I was living there for a year and I used to follow the poet around from time to time when I would see him on the street. The opening stanza is a description of how one would go from the house where I was living to the house where Pound lived on Dorsoduro in Venice."
