1.19


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

1.16


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

1.13


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

1.12


cloudless blue white sky above still shadowed ridge

whiteness of moon next to pine branch in foreground


interval oriented at rest, relative to multiplicity

reflected surface, direct light, viewed from system


what appears to be grey tile reflected a cloudiness

in conflict with the effort of the work’s precision


grey whiteness of fog against still invisible ridge

white curve of moon next to NO PARKING ANYTIME sign

1.11


grey whiteness of fog against still invisible ridge

motionless black branch next to fence in foreground


touched by being what is, think reflection of words

explaining each other, so green, background figures


lack of sequence either from word to word or phrase

to phrase makes a reader impatient with abstraction


grey whiteness of fog against top of shadowed ridge

white line of wave breaking across mouth of channel

1.10


grey whiteness of clouds above shadowed green ridge

red-shouldered hawk calling on branch in foreground


example of thing, subject motionless itself as time

that, opposition to these forms, adapted to changes


woman in brown shawl showing man a yellow and green

leaf which she places between the pages of her book


reddish pink edges of cloud above shoulder of ridge

shadowed line wave breaking across mouth of channel

1.9


dream in unmade yellow and blue bed opposite window

something about man reading random letters on fence


while immersed in making, sitter’s wide-brimmed hat

as object, in a manner of speaking, must be thought


the reader not building up a readerly head of steam

white the text objectified as book might counteract


grey rain clouds against shadowed shoulder of ridge

white line of wave breaking across mouth of channel

1.8


grey rain cloud above shadowed green plane of ridge

drops falling on red wet bricks in right foreground


handed me the binoculars, house with roof and walls

head of person, less than its profile, figures view


woman who puts her bed next to windows of new house

first night of the full moon not sleeping all night


grey of rain cloud above shadowed shoulder of ridge

gulls flapping to the left across windblown channel

1.7


light pink clouds in sky above shadowed green ridge

red-shouldered hawk calling on branch in foreground


expressed as follows, two parts marked as body form

state motion of observer, waves reflected, of light


man paddling out with thumb-sized sandstone-colored

rock from Sedona lets it drop into mouth of channel


sunlit edges of cloud above black shoulder of ridge

moon in pale blue sky above NO PARKING ANYTIME sign


Saturday, January 6, 2018

1.6


horizontal line of cloud above black plane of ridge

waning whiteness of moon above branch in foreground


possible that person with and without, others touch

each other, become almost an idea you feel, walking


woman walking up hill in rain with eight-pound rock

from Sedona wanting man to drop it into the channel


line of grey cloud above shadowed shoulder of ridge

two cormorants flapping to the right toward horizon


Friday, January 5, 2018

1.5


blackness of rain cloud above still invisible ridge

motionless black branches above fence in foreground


notion of time, phases of moment as part of present

now, which past expresses form, and for that reason


the person slamming into a car parked on the street

focuses on the word world accident informing events


grey blackness of cloud above still invisible ridge

pale orange line of lights in clouds on the horizon

1.4


dream in unmade yellow and blue bed opposite window
something about earthquake shaking walls at 2:38 AM

appraisal of his friends, description of them seems
spherical, center what is present, is to be thought

woman recalling what happened at home wasn’t talked
about her brother asking if she drank or took drugs

pink edge of cloud above shadowed shoulder of ridge

white line of wave breaking across mouth of channel
