#262 The Ordeal of Sleep




I like
painting
Georgette asleep
as much as I
like watching
her; but it’s
an ordeal
for me unless I
take her night-
dress off &
paint her on
her side. I
cannot forget
how my mother
was found
after her suicide,
floating on her
back in the
river with her
nightdress up
over her face
as if it were
a veil.

#261 The Orient




The source is probably The
Source
, that, elsewhere
anadyomène, Ingres nude who

pauses, poses, water pouring
from a ewer resting on her
shoulder. Who has grown

bored with the stasis of it
all, put down the ewer, torn
it open, then climbed inside.

First pose the
egg, & then

paint the bird
as it appears.

#259 The Invention of Life


Very little is known
about the early life
of Archimedes before
he invented personal
flotation devices. It

could be him here, in
some sort of Chinese
movie, middle-class
woman, hidden man
,
considering the placebo

effect, or the drift of
religions into new
forms, & wondering if
they change the way we
think about medicine?

#256 La Clairvoyance (1962)





A common mistake people
make is assuming that 'seeing'

unfound objects or actions
removed in space or time

involves the use of the eyes
in a closed state. There will

undoubtedly be skeptics
who demand scientific proof—

repercussions from the
Human Genome Project—

but watch the video before read-
ing on. Due to copyright law

#255 Painted Object: Eye


          When one eye moves,
                      there is a ghostly after-
              image that follows it.

                           The other eye contains 
            analytically defined 
                      shape equations that 

                  produce the ability to 
                            perceive color. It's 
                      always fun to dream.

#254 The Cultivation of Ideas






He stands at the
end of a diving
board, the pool a
palette with limited
colors. Or so it

seems. & yet. The
man reflects upon
the pool. He has no
idea how deep it
is. Until the dive.

#253 Table, Ocean and Fruit



We are beyond frustrated.
He finally has real reviews
by real people. My hair has
become healthier. We live

in a house overlooking
the ocean. But we both
appear to have a texture
problem, either the toes of

clunky leather boots or/&
cuba libre & tropical fruit on
a wooden table. A player

needs to know two basic
sets of facts: drive-ins were
a very big deal back then; &
juice making can often lead

to exotic states. We're brand
new to power auras. Some-
times they just crash. What
is it we are doing wrong?

#252 This is a Piece of Cheese

for Yoko Ono
This is a piece of the old Atomium, in the Delft University of Technology
This is a piece of information that is used to support a main idea
This is a piece of genre Koten from the Chikuho Ryû & Oshu Kei Schools
This is a piece of socio-political commentary
This is a piece of relationship advice.

This is a piece of paper I hand cut
This is a piece of some sort of map
This is a piece of code
This is a piece of metal folded over one edge of the disk
This is a piece of wood. Is this interesting?

This is a piece of three strand nylon rope
This is a piece of coral received from Captain Bob
This is a piece of thylacine cartilage
This is a piece of cloth that covers the face
This is a piece of another paragon's encasing amber.

This is a piece of a basalt pillow
This is a piece of cardboard so doesn't include a battery
This is a piece of cutwork lace that begs the question
This is a piece of machinery that simply isn't meant to be airborne
This is a piece of hardware that allows one item to take the place of several.

This is a piece of the Berlin Wall
This is a piece of metal in the eye
This is a piece of California's past
This is a piece of prime real estate
This is a piece of sky. Hold on to it.

This is a piece of art
This is the only piece of art we've left on the Moon
This is a piece of reality so dense that it goes beyond art
This is a piece of cheese
This is a piece of my puzzle now.
