elements of

the equinox

a chaplet of elevens, a brace of twenty-ones

that is

a sequence

(sin tí)

“noising loud” in the  library,

dismantling an axis you turned upon

without, but survives w/in

a thin line, memory -

the spring horizon  of the third year


your yellow primrose planted late

under must, absent

shift, as pattern, earth, 

the clannish obstinence of  seed


we don’t see the drain or ditch beautiful

taking refuse, spillage


trees as Simeon’s stylus

after the first new moon

black against the grey sky, 

a close,


draft of white

while, walled,, all boughs exposed to closure

a cold wing of wind

in Ohio 70 degrees and hail

both places, we're weary

The Pairs: To see the essential in the unessential and to see the essence as unessential means one can never get to the essence, wandering as one is in the road of wrong intentions.

n o t e s

sun in aquarius
moon waning gibbous
27 degrees fahrenheit

dry winter here
no overflow
no spillage


describe the mind:
lush/ flow/ channel/ course

that is

a physical abundance of

a chemically fluid

declination and ascent of

future generations




river messaged me in dream -

f i l m

The dead man's daughter asked
why is no one crying at his funeral?

a big sadness is dry.

he became a tree, sent messages through parrots and bats, gave flowers, leaked sap,
broke boughs, stole water.

it wasn't enough

the cyclone hit during drought.
the tree, uprooted, died protecting them.
his children gathered worms from his dirt root cavity.
planted a seedling,
helped mother retrieve the car from under rubble.

She drove them away.

( P L A C E H O L D E R S )

intramission theory

"which states that visual perception comes from something representative of the object (later established to be rays of light reflected from it) entering the eyes."

Al Hazan  965CE

"Abū ʿAlī al-Ḥasan ibn al-Ḥasan ibn al-Haytham (Arabicأبو علي، الحسن بن الحسن بن الهيثم‎‎; Persianبوعلی محمد بن حسن بن هیثم‎‎ c. 965 – c. 1040 ce), also known by the Latinization Alhazen or Alhacen,[10] was an Arab[11]Muslim[12][13][14] scientistmathematicianastronomer, and philosopher.[15] Ibn al-Haytham made significant contributions to the principles of opticsastronomymathematics and visual perception.[16] He was the first to explain that vision occurs when light bounces on an object and then is directed to one's eyes.[17] "

advice to the unknown




keep the sake in it

less is an absence mooring

anchored elsewhere

still, there's a weight

that once or twice lifts itself

straighten and stare

that's you

out there

among those nameless things.
