dream in unmade yellow and blue bed opposite window

something about person using more nouns in her work

along with such a drawing subject, report to sister

there too, something more than even it, in terms of

her names say more about her parents than about her

each one of them carries slightly different meaning

first red edge of sun rising into smoke above ridge

line of 7 pelicans circling toward mouth of channel

red orange edge of smoke above still shadowed ridge

motion of wind in green bamboo leaves in foreground

in what it could sense by what kept hidden, reflect

shoulder, one on stomach, her face facing both ways

girl in the music room holding an old Martin guitar

older brother with violin and bow staring at camera

reddish circle of sun above black shoulder of ridge

line of pelicans gliding to the left toward channel

grey whiteness of smoke in front of invisible ridge

sparrow standing on black pine branch in foreground

roof in addition to rule, formed according to which

branch, tangent on right, transition from one point

woman reading in small gulps instead of one sitting

visually working out the problems of transitoriness

red circle of sun coming up above shoulder of ridge

lines of gulls flapping to the right toward channel

reddish orange smoke in sky above still black ridge

planet beside black pine branch in right foreground

say of words the speaking itself, even before first

color just so, effects of answers, train of thought

comes out of the body visual shape of words on two-

dimensional page acoustic shape of words in the air

redness of sun rising in smoke by shoulder of ridge

egrets flapping to the left across mouth of channel

light coming into sky above shadowed plane of ridge

first bird chirping from branch in right foreground

between subject and world idea of, relation between

located, handwritten text resumes its course, depth

Drayton’s Amours in Quatorzains underlined by man’s

hand time appears in world passing forward and back

cloudless blue white sky above black plane of ridge

line of 2 pelicans gliding in from mouth of channel

dream in unmade yellow and blue bed opposite window

man paddling out at channel toward glassy blue left

doorway at left, whatever he felt obliged to reject

something else, back into going over it, more to it

wanting more coffee explains how writing might wake

us up to previously unnoticed aspects of experience

blinding whiteness of sun next to shoulder of ridge

white lines of waves breaking into mouth of channel

cloudless blue white sky above black plane of ridge

sparrows chirping on rose branch in left foreground

perhaps held nothing back in such a way as to, face

“places,” becomes prefix, figures as they bend over

bride in white dress on groom’s lap at top of ridge

sun going down as man in blue shirt takes a picture

blue whiteness of sky above black shoulder of ridge

line of 3 pelicans gliding in from mouth of channel
