#136 On the Threshold of Freedom





It was then that we
arrived, too late
to influence, but not
too late to interfere.

#135 Le Beau Monde





The world which
we see
clearly

is the curtain
in front
of

the
world which
Magritte clearly sees.

#134 The Companions of Fear



The
Companions
of Fear are
to be

found
at the
top of a
mountain.

Fear is
some-
where
below.

Only
her euphonium
kept    her    afloat.

#132 L'Ami intime









All I
could offer him
was
         water &
bread. But we
are good
friends, & I
forgive him
for walking out
on me.

#131 The Palace of Curtains III




The curtains
drawn. Same

thing on both.
Sky. The sky.

Neither is.

#130 The Search for the Absolute


Images &
things you can't
look in-
to. Gödel
again. The
absolute is so
uncertain. But
I have just killed
a small flying
thing that
landed on this
reproduction
in my Magritte
book & it is
now absolute-
ly dead.

#129 The Call of the Peaks






Glaciers flow
out of the

painting. The
mountain is
an eagle that

does not leave
the ground.

#128 Le Voix du sang



Gödel once
more. If a
forest is cut down
so that only
a single tree
remains, is
the forest still
part of the set
of forests? Let's
ask the people
living inside
the tree &
see what they
have to say.
There's a light on.
