#115 Memory of a Journey III


I know we sidetracked
to see where the
troglodytes had
lived. Other than that
think bridges gone
over, under, or
danced upon. & lines —
train, coke, telephone.
Somewhere we had
antipasto, & drank. Not
too much, just enough
to make conversation
easy & company
complicated. Towards
the end the waiter
brought a bowl of
fruit. We peeled the
oranges & fed the seg-
ments to each other.
We left the apples.

#114 The Interpretation of Dreams

1) The Acacia

The arid regions
of Senegal
act as an incubator
for the
gum arabic tree.

2) The Moon

A soft
moon shuffle
by the light
of the
silvery shoe.

3) The Snow

The bowl of
night is
& filled
with white.

4) The Ceiling


5) The Storm

The sky
has that angular
clarity that
often precedes
a change in
the weather.

6) The Desert

Only when the
last nail
is put in place
does it be-
come apparent
that all along
it was a
mirage that he
was building.
