ROMMEL DRIVES ON DEEP INTO EGYPT
— San Francisco Chronicle Headline
June 26, 1942
 
Rommel is dead.
His army has joined the quicksand legions
of history where battle is always
a metal echo saluting a rusty shadow.
His tanks are gone.
How’s your ass?
 
— Richard Brautigan (whose final book of poetry was titled June 30th, June 30th…)
