Abstract

PRETTY WORDS, PARABOLAS / Bin Ramke I once knew things. Formulae and fantasies of my own. Now nothing? The patience and particularities cohere into lyrical agony given a chance; the sudden telephone peeled sleep from the household--a death somewhere and a father left home, the long drive through morning Tennessee gray--Or did I read it? Was it not no, never my family's death? The old do die, and the young. Here's a happy thought. Happiness coheres, look at the past, as if: once upon a time. To have a small lawn in a large world is a victory. One kind. A place for poppies, gentians and a sound of water pleasing and mountains, clouds et cetera. If you sit to admire to what wUl you turn your back? A house, an interior and glass, this wiU do. At last the world is gUster of its own making, sufficient machine. Not at last. There is (no?) that same hummingbird I met last summer. Learn to live. If the Body is a form of itself over time, then there is music, or could be. From this pleasant prospect we can see more air than anything. Moving. StiU my ignorance is
