If facing the paper, your thought is 'I am an artist', you have no clue what to do. If the concepts of your function are, 'I am a shape maker, an entertainer, an expressive symbol collector'...then you have an explicit road map. Edgar Whitney

reasons for silence

so the wheel barrow
full of star frequencies
can speak

so the energy wave
that is body
may be seen

a table cloth may
embroider itself
with grub roses

of the sewing box
may be heard

thunder of rust developing
on the hollow legs
of picnic tables
rattle the trees

the harmonic of frost chimes
resonant in the lacunae
within the leaves
of felicia amelloides
calls the followers to prayer

so that a rush
of seedlings heaves
the clay aside and terrifies

so the crackle
of thin bible pages
is delicious

so that as you
breathe out
and I breathe in
we synchronize

fuse at the sternum
with a seam of gold
in the ore of our bodies
the sound
of silent lightening
