“In 1945 he was arrested by the US Army and held in an army prison camp at Pisa, where he was placed in solitary confinement in a large outdoor cage. He was later allowed the privacy of a small tent within this cage”     Thom Gunn.

“And the blue-gray glass of the wave tents them,
Glare azure of water, cold-welter, close cover.”     Canto II.

Shock-stripped light
Branched the ribcage-cage
Enters the cave
Cripple-must basement
Here the favourite hole, forward
To white ring views
Rose-brick rain-petals
& them with their smirk-eyes:
I want to see
If they want to make faces.
