Recording of “Untitled from 1988″…History has a way of bringing the past to the present in words.


Source: Recording of “Untitled from 1988”

This was first published in 1988, in Aileron. At the time I was experimenting with movement and breath and line and wrote quite a few of these meditations in this form, some more successful than others.

where breath begins
it ends consider
light its secret

structure the sense
of limit defined
if a hand

recalls what the
eye cannot which
is the source

of remembrance one
touches more deeply
or allows itself

to be touched
a difference only
in the approach
