Cezanne's Ports

The Gulf of Marseilles Seen from L'Estaque by Paul Cézanne

Cezanne's Ports
Allen Ginsberg

In the foreground we see time and life
swept in a race
toward the left hand side of the picture
where shore meets shore.

But that meeting place
isn't represented;
it doesn't occur on the canvas.

For the other side of the bay
is Heaven and Eternity,
with a bleak white haze over its mountains.

And the immense water of L'Estaque is a go—between
for minute rowboats.
