11.12




first light coming into fog against invisible ridge


white-crowned sparrow landing on feeder below fence


then nothing except those it set in form of subject


references contained in given note follows document


each thing is first of all itself in order to exist


likewise these words the manifestation of something


light coming into fog against still invisible ridge


white edge of wave breaking on sand next to channel

11.11




cloudless blue pink white edge of sky next to ridge


two sparrows landing on feeder beside redwood fence


only until part placed between attention to letters


these recall the part against objective inner space


transcription of these things actions events taking


place in world out there word as enactment of world


fog moving across still invisible shoulder of ridge


shadowed line of swell approaching mouth of channel

11.10




light in window opposite unmade yellow and blue bed


first bird chirping from branch in right foreground


paint emphasized by light and dark broad flat color


active for example structure held in place by force


one attending to what’s on one level familiar world


shifting light observed meaning logic of difference


grey whiteness of fog against top of shadowed ridge


diagonal white line of wave breaking across channel

11.9




light grey whiteness of fog against invisible ridge


song sparrows lined up on fence in right foreground


explained therefore according to every other system


field where force transforms space in such way that


environment appears to be encoded with significance


hummingbird approaching flower across from listener


grey whiteness of fog against still invisible ridge


white edge of wave breaking on sand next to channel

11.8




light coming into fog against still invisible ridge


sound of bird chirping on branch in left foreground


saying to get this beginning of the story to follow


lamps going on once logic of light in the left hand


listener who can’t make out what the words are will


still hear their essential tone pause pitch silence


grey whiteness of fog still against invisible ridge


shadowed line of swell approaching mouth of channel

11.7




light coming into fog against still invisible ridge


house sparrows perched on fence in right foreground


one who projects such forms from the mass of things


direction of line and letter in revised translation


perhaps no more than an extended desire to document


bird standing on redwood fence before it disappears


light grey whiteness of fog against invisible ridge


white line of wave breaking across mouth of channel

11.6




grey whiteness of fog against still invisible ridge


sound of crow calling on branch in right foreground


reed pen and graphite on paper inscribed to his son


the more some turn to the open call its whole sound


someone looking back recalls what happened that day


moment of being there is witness to things now gone


grey white fog against still invisible top of ridge


swell line approaching otherwise motionless channel
