grey blackness of sky against still invisible ridge

motionless black branches above fence in foreground

landscape within the week framed in line, beyond is

visible, what stands that is, sphere of objectivity

man thinking of sun in trillions of framed pictures

black forest green window in sandstone-colored wall

grey blackness of fog still against invisible ridge

orange line of lights on the horizon across from it

grey whiteness of fog against top of shadowed ridge

yellow of iris to the left of green glass back door

spring breeze impression, infused more human breath

like a visit from relief, beginning, made eye whole

China with its 5000 years of history breathing down

mother’s back also difficult to find American roots

grey whiteness of fog against top of shadowed ridge

swell line moving toward mouth of windblown channel

cloudless blue white sky above still shadowed ridge

blue jay pecking up seeds from feeder in foreground

one accustomed to between concepts, questions as to

difference and curvature, velocity, second to three

man asking what’s the difference between the script

and a recitation “words-on-page” and “words-in-air”

blue whiteness of sky above black shoulder of ridge

great blue heron flapping to the right toward point

horizontal line of cloud above still shadowed ridge

silhouette of bird standing on branch in foreground

prepare and so hold sway, place in no way means not

moment structured, a wall with figures, many echoes

man recalling guitarist performing in empty factory

with musician who had been deaf since the age of 12

grey lines of clouds in sky above still black ridge

white curve of moon in pale blue sky across from it

light coming into sky above shadowed plane of ridge

white curve of moon below pine branch in foreground

grasping events, one more something other than that

so abstract, is in itself here, still is so limited

“thanc” imbued with the natures of memory gathering

the intention of everything the heart holds present

first pink whiteness of sky above shoulder of ridge

waning quarter moon above clouds to the right of it

light grey fog against still invisible top of ridge

blue jay perched on fence in lower right foreground

sheets of this size, five of them made from scratch

ninth line before object, invisible, whose presence

father recalling maneuvers next to island in Puerto

Rico when they fired 5-inch 38 rockets at the beach

sunlit lower edge of clouds above shoulder of ridge

shadowed white line of wave breaking across channel

dream in unmade yellow and blue bed opposite window

something about driving car down mountain no brakes

form which is implied, as tangible as climate which

in reference to “manner,” portrait of, she drew him

woman standing beside man stopped in grey car later

sends note to apologize for falling into his window

line of cloud in pale blue sky above shadowed ridge

white half moon across from NO PARKING ANYTIME sign
