diagonal line of cloud in pale blue sky above ridge

shadowed birds slanting toward branch in foreground


boats in sea reflect, see figure repeated in sketch

object sense of presence, words about it, in letter


woman in brown shawl never before telling her story

of having seen two angels standing above the lagoon


horizontal plane of cloud next to shoulder of ridge

white lines of waves breaking into mouth of channel

light grey rain cloud against still invisible ridge

motionless black branches above fence in foreground


immersed in figure, earth awake from its drowsiness

internal, shadow of light from side, woman on chair


woman in blue dress lying on sandstone-colored rock

in Sedona oval shape of stone next to her left hand


grey rain cloud against invisible shoulder of ridge

white lines of waves breaking into mouth of channel

1.17


grey whiteness of clouds above black plane of ridge

shadowed birds slanting toward branch in foreground


ways now points of space, ends of interval the same

direction, in light after light, correspond to form


form making a vessel into which almost anything can

be placed see Beckett’s how to accommodate the mess


sunlit red orange of clouds above shoulder of ridge

shadowed white line of wave breaking across channel

man waking from dream in unmade yellow and blue bed

play within the play being the key to Twelfth Night


what it is responding to, reflection of thinking is

smoke and tone, detail on facing page bottom, above


twelve-voice form used forty pages of the poem only

eight-voice form was broadcast on radio in November


grey rain cloud against invisible shoulder of ridge

white line of wave breaking to the right of channel

1.15


pink edge of cloud above still black plane of ridge

red-shoulder hawk calling from branch in foreground


is in order to be subject itself, not as its shadow

period no more than work, only on its own, sequence


man dealing with what each day presents as possible

temperature minus 20 a bear raiding the bird feeder


yellow red orange of clouds above shoulder of ridge

white line of wave breaking across mouth of channel

1.14


dream in unmade yellow and blue bed opposite window

rain flooding studio books on bottom shelves soaked


investigation of line and mind in fact, pen and ink

where light, which covers itself, would be speaking


specific thing present as object becomes impossible

and so as it looks itself seems to leave the ground


yellow red orange of clouds above shoulder of ridge

gulls flapping to the left across windblown channel

light in window opposite unmade yellow and blue bed

white curve of moon by branches in right foreground


window, tree superimposed on painting in which that

side and front semblance, person facing, take place


random house more opaque than other sentences works

“compute a person finding meaning through rhetoric


red orange lines of clouds beside shoulder of ridge

moon in cloudless blue white sky by NO PARKING sign
