#55 Dangerous Liaisons



She held a
mirror up
to herself
then turned
away from it,
almost as if
this brief
liaison with
her own flesh
held too much
danger to be
confronted.

#54 The Future of Statues

for Vincent Ponka
It was the
elegance of
the diving birds
that caught his
fancy. That,
& the fact the sea
was made
from stone. He
closed his eyes
& let the sky
stream over
him. The clouds
contained a
hint of snow.

#53 The Month of the Grape Harvest (1)


Open window.

Many men
in bowler hats.

The same man
over & over.

Looking in.
No looking out.

A sealed room.
Hermetic fusion.

September.

#52 The Art of Conversation I (1950)

No chance
assemblage. Too much
structure in the
way the blocks
are stacked. Look
at the base. REVE is
real & not
a dream. Foucault
describes it
as a landscape from
the battle of the giants
against the gods;
but if that
is so then
someone has come along
afterwards &
tidied up. Added an
after word. Re-
written history.
