[FROM AN EMAIL FROM GEORGE SOLOMOS TO fdw 2 WEEKS AGO. . .]



A 'niger poem plan' by me? What's that? A 'short story' from me? Maybe.

I haven't written many stories (nor poems) but you can find several pieces I've written in a THICK
RED hardcover volume called AVANT-GAURDE MAGAZINES - zero 1949 - 1956 - published
by Arno Press (A new York Times Company) 1974. Any big library carries it I believe.

I never knew a book like that ever existed until many years later. The NY Times having RIPPED off my
entire publishing endeavors but not informing me first - let alone paying for rights or even credit as
to who gave them ;the copies.. Yeah? American style GOOD BUSINESS practices.?

One reason I stopped publishing altogether was when I learned what a VICIOUS GANGSTER
INDUSTRY PUBLISHING IS IN AMERICA. So? No thanks.

You also don't seem to realize I've lived abroad most of my adult life because the USA for me is
NOTHING but the worst empire in past or modern history. Nor how pleased II am to see if fall
apart while I'm still alive. VOTE FOR WHAT? Don't make me laugh!

Best wishes. g. PS: Still photo of me taken from 'screen test'


for biography roll of 'Rudolf 'valentino Hollywood 1947.
I've been around the block a few times!

George P. Solomos
COLONY OF THE NIGER





Multitudinous child eucalyptus trees
Block and retard the big bombard
Of "Progressive Builders" building progress
(Where Hannibal’s numidian elephants trode)
From connecting by road Bengahzi with Agd├Ęs,
Colony of the Niger.





Many many meters, hidden in shade, away
From these builders of retrograde
A boy in a crimson bournous one day
(Whether sick, whether poor, whether real,
Or no More) sat crying:
Absalom Ben Moktar Hamal, age two;
And slaughtering flies, playing defy,
And merry-go-rounding his fingertips.





Into the shade-scene from left entered:
His mother. By virtue and stigmata
A slave; sold thrice since birth.
She gently lowered to the ground a bundle
Of twigs, of straw, of grain, all bound
By cord, by wire, by hide: her buys;
And sat to rest beside Absalom.





With dignity she handed him a date, when
Then whispered in his ear: "My son, be done:
"My son, my blood, my flesh, my bones
Be done with the slaughtering, be done with flies,
Be done with the drudgery of your cries
And listen to me, my son my – my ninth:





"If the winds are not wrong (for Barbary’s sake)
The heat from the sun will not grow you your harm
But will grow you fast and will grow you strong
As the eucalyptus tree grows, if the winds are not wrong.
"Then take you a mate, take one of your kind
To have children, to have children by grace of the moon;
Then follow your fate to lands of the dune, to lands of the hill,
To savagery and thrill (where weapons are made)
Where your father is found. Make Haste!





"For the builders are building by sea and by wing
A procession of progress: A ROAD TO THE SOUTH;
For time immemorial (to anthem and sing);
The builders they build, the builders they bring:
OUR SALVATIONS. By sea and by wing.
"To surface they dig, to ‘Surface’ they say,
(The slime and the sling.) To the surface the dig,
To lay ‘Open and Bare’, (our ways and our means.)





To the surface they dig, the ‘Old and the Coy’,
(The useless and worn.) The land where our fathers
Dead centuries or more (lay waste.) They say.
"By it so . . . ! Be it not . . .!
They build link to the south: TO SPLIT US IN HALF!
To take gold, to take gold, then take gold aftermath;
To bejudge us, begrudge us our due and our mind,
Our eye and our mouth to disregard time
And sit in the shade (when to cry, when to laugh)
When eats to be made. Alas! Alas!
They begrudge us recline, they begrudge us our time
To rest! To rest! Alas. Alas.





"My sons, my winds, my weapons, my nights
Be done with the builders – be done, be wise;
Take to the hills, take all of your kind
(And listen to me – my ninths, my ninths:)
"When night befalls you (MEN OF WILDERNESS)
You must find them, all of that kind,
And bind them! You must bind them all, all that you find,
Whether near, whether far, whether front, or behind,
You must bind them all – all of that kind. Make Haste!"


Colony of the Niger was written 60 years ago in 1945 by George P. Solomos when he was 20 years old – after serving 2-1/2 years on combat duty in the US Air Force during WW2 in Europe. The poem was written in his Freshman year (for a graduate-course in ‘Humanities’) at Wayne State University (Detroit) and published in the student magazine that year. It was next published in 1955 in Zero Anthology (Zero Press, NYC). It is published here in ‘memory’ of the recent Babylon bombings in Iraq.

e! Thanks.


[subtext: This here post is a preliminary study for a more in depth
more substantial ULA Main Page Monday Report which will attempt to place GPSolomos and his career in context while showing how who was screwed and suppressed by the same mainstream corporate overdogs as well as official bastards like the CIA sponsored Paris Review and
Partisan review, etc. because of his principles no nonsense poise and the fact that he is truly a grand- daddyO of us undergrounders and our underground culture affects presently!]
