More poetry about headless torsos

Inspired by Magdalena Abakanowicz’s “Agora,” newly unveiled in Chicago, we reminded you of TS Eliot’s, “We are the hollow men …

Now we post some
Carl Sandburg.
Born in Sandburg Village in 1878… That’s not true; but he did write these lines, about another headless sculpture ….

” And you left off the head here,
The skull found always crumbling neighbor of the ankles.”

Number 11 of Sandburg’s “Chicago Poems.”

We write much more on Agora here.
