Cid Corman

Cid Corman’s The fabric

downstairs as
I look in
from the street

I can catch
the loom and
can sense the

heartbeat
strengthen the
night coming

“Cid Corman” sounds like a character out of some noir vision of Brooklyn, New York City, New York. “Cid Corman” sounds like the image you see when you Google him. Cid Corman, something of and out of the 20th Century.

“Corman is the poet of quiet” writes Lorine Niedecker, who also sounds like poet of the 20th century, “Lorine”, especially when we read her poem You are my friend, which we are introduced to, along with Cid Corman, in ModPo. On Coursera.
