light grey rain cloud against still invisible ridge

two towhees pecking up seeds on bricks below feeder

from any other which could be from these particular

straight line imagined parallel to a starting point

sound as an acoustic shape its shape a visual sound

each line separate and connected to lines around it

grey white rain cloud still against invisible ridge

sound of white water breaking into mouth of channel

grey whiteness of fog against still invisible ridge

white-crowned sparrow landing on fence above feeder

overlook through which seeing hurries to experience

in between the next few lines either future or past

arrangement of letters in words running across page

think of lines as enactments of how and what we see

grey whiteness of fog still against invisible ridge

white lines of waves breaking into mouth of channel

white edge of grey cloud above shadowed green ridge

two white-crowned sparrows landing on redwood fence

chosen because this way knows the following instant

person not possible to refer to the sun wind viewed

what was happening in the picture an event material

person’s hand approaching the two-dimensional plane

sunlit whiteness of cloud next to shoulder of ridge

shadowed line of swell approaching mouth of channel

grey blackness of sky against still invisible ridge

motionless black pine branches beside redwood fence

street under a blue sky stars dark violet and green

passed the once present partake in what is presumed

speaking of no sound the first one that comes along

change from making to whatever comes of consequence

grey line of light on horizon to the right of ridge

sound of waves breaking on sand across from channel

light coming into clouds above black plane of ridge

blue jay landing on edge redwood fence above feeder

lasting one was also present seems open before that

over as shaded light seeing symbol of the sun’s eye

located in place things and events in which looking

move between window closing and reflection in glass

pale orange of clouds above black shoulder of ridge

line of shadowed swell approaching mouth of channel

dream in unmade yellow and blue bed opposite window

photograph of father still looking like Johnny Cash

same time holds simultaneous light in higher degree

point as before the center of curvature normal line

eyes drifting across the page finding certain words

opposite to how everything changes someone on paper

yellow red orange sky above black shoulder of ridge

shadowed line of swell approaching mouth of channel

triangular grey cloud in blue white sky above ridge

5 white-crowned sparrows lining up on redwood fence

look what holds under visible things between vision

so often by 10 o’clock the difference between seems

looks like shadowed tree at lowest point of horizon

field of grass below sunlit clouds in pale blue sky

white edge of sun coming up above clouds on horizon

white line of wave breaking across mouth of channel
