after war
i asked myself
what arts reply would be
to all these huge changes
in human relationships
the famous artists hardly responded
i was about to turn away
when I noticed a group of young people
who had something to say
and who said it on a new note violently
in a primitive way perhaps
they were seeking a new language
with much warmth and resolution
