JOSEPH HARRIS

Joseph Harris was born in Birmingham, Alabama. He came to Aiken, South Carolina, in 1957 as headmaster of an Episcopal school (Mead Hall) and retired from this position after 27 years. During his lifetime, he published poetry and short stories in over 250 literary journals and other magazines, and ten anthologies, plus a festschrift for Karl Shapiro.


Canals

Canals,
whether Suez or alimentary,
are maps
of our finiteness.

From birth’s
bloody canal to light,
through death’s tunnel,
some say, to another light.

Even mind,
that free-roving bird
of myth, so idolized by
the cult-makers of symbol,

has its canals,
with estuaries to insight
or Skinner boxes of madness,
depending on the current

of tide
that flows between
the Scylla of self and
the Charybdis of terror.

—Copyright 1997 Joseph Harris
