gesture

 

confined to a wall

limits of original language

iteration

head or hand

 

human form, architect

the collarbone,

linear air

 

in shadow,

tender, and

thrumming, a half lit

halo dances along the wall

 

why follow one source?

 

pattern of sound,

a hand waves the air

 

spider’s web thin–

juncture, a note

 

identity

relationship of two

vanishing points when a person looks

directly toward the center of a room

 

location and characters

converge

 

when two persons look directly

toward the center of a room

may be unified in scale

and hour

 

but not to endure, a location

where imitable habits of grandparents

that to live, are no longer

 

the new picture requires

rearrangement of vanishing points

minus a referent

 

requires a diet

of the next

favorite show

of salt, newsprint,

apple juice, a slice of Wonder

 

time passes quickly, for an eternity

 

on its side, a shelter can be decorated

with bricks for furniture, inside, strings for a guitar,

a table with removable segments,

a partial collection of puzzles and card games

 

layers of carpet and red brick,

formica, hand sewn fabrics,

wires behind drywall, and a roof

joins the house

to the sky

 

the area outside the frame

viewed with the so-called corner of the eye,

as an entity in itself

the histories appear—

 

collective want—

 

in the abstract is One, but

sitting there, spoon in hand

curvature of the known universe

tooth,

mouth,

private historical moment

wondered of dawn, as the edge of

something—

but where begin?

 

small creatures in nested holes

fortify entrances

tables rise through the dark

toward an all-encompassing

in-between event

 

ritual objects such as the Placemat,

Bones observed in the San Pedro Wilderness, near Cuba, NM–and digitally celebrated (embellished).

Fathom line

Fathom line

 

sounding line with fathom points

in areas of known depth

 

or, off soundings,

interpret as:

limitless

 

a sinuous line connects all points

similar, thus the contours

wide enough

to encircle

with extended arms

 

this morning is other mornings

while singular as to be never lived again

 

can it be that two people in a photograph

ascend into ruins and look around—

at an extent, outside limits familiar

with no way to lift even one of the stones

that form the arc overhead, hears a voice

skip surface across gray walls

having yet to seep down

 

that rows of faces on the bus are vibrations

in glance and gesture, repeat

all the way, long after destination,

with plastic sacks of fruit,

and handmade purse in rainbow

hues, as tribute at the feet

of correlation

 

vegetal cognition turns away

from a cobbled city where alas,

trinkets fall into the palm as bound

morphemes, as in pre-

un- ness-and -y, and cannot

stand alone as a known

 

and in an alley, an anonymous

dog barks repeat, laying claim

to this territory

 

where, within the lines, the same word

means to attach and to sever;

as a seine net gathers

every object spanning yes

and no

 

the sound of light in waves

as the dark part of the morning

subsides

 

re-emerges as ululation

between source

and surface

under the root,

the ant cities explode

 

ii.

all weighs less at the dawn

moment: the unhomed

heart, even grave

goods; dawning and its polar,

dusk, weigh less. Lineage,

less. Less, as,

an,

“control of resources

of empire”—what else

to display?

song threads sung

while weaving are pre-

sequent; a tune

or gesture exposed

to elements decipher

threadbare

 

v.

lack of bronze vessels

does not convey,

alas; useful

only as new forms

 

vi.

does this mean we know

how to lose control? Measure

from center, as the edges have no

descendant

 

vii.

new growth imperceptible

as light interrupts planes; one

by one, orthogonal events

become permanent
