Cadeaux #2 – More Gifts

 

We only rise from sleep, we only come to dream. It is not true, it is not true, that we come to live on earth.

— Tochihuitzin Coyolchiuhqui (1390 – 1450)

V. For Gottfried Benn  

 

             rather than a, b, c

& repetitive order              

I am seeing for the 1st time

what this mind has to offer

 

 

 

 

VI. For Wols 

 

squiggly symbol

I am invisible

looking at the 

squiggly symbol 

presently it tilts 

(my mother calls)

squiggly symbol

 

 

 

 

VII. For Ossip Mandelstam 

 

based on prior experience 

I have doused the chains

so the actual fires were 

a belated goal of experience

death grins at me & blinded

              I feel my way into her realm
