Page 8 Back a Van Gogh Yellow The air feels punished after you speak. You're one of the incurables. I love that in you. Sometimes when I think of you, my sex climbs falling time like a canoe lifting itself up on end. It doesn't know there is anything in it, then it loses all. You want it that way, ignorant of grammar, like God. To be with you is to be around you, skirting the sizzling rococo of your circuits.

Praise all focus impersonal as the chord a child plays biting his tongue; Richard Goode's Schubert delicate as the surf's quick-stepping wash-back; the ballet troupe's determined tattoo to stage left; the gymnast's rubber-band spring off the beam.  This mortal on morning's ragged shore, this shell broken open by the night-waves, this face picked from atoms, is intention's gift, intention's grief.
