“HE EXPERIENCED /THE EFFECT OF FORESAKEN THINGS IN A FOREIGN SPACE”(“AFTER NATURE”, PART 2): ANOTHER SEBALDIAN POEM, BY STEVEN BENSON

I have heard it said

That, when

One reads

Sebald,

All kinds of

Resonances

Echo

Around

Oneself.

What is this

Uncanny

Pre-figuring

And

Con-figuring

Of the self

Through

This

Great Writer?

They re-afffirm,

Re-echo

Ourselves; they

Reflect back

Ourselves

To us

A

Sort of

Doppelganger

Effect

Sometimes

That Sebald takes

To its

(Un)natural

Conclusion
