"a congress a quiet congress"













...this repose this calm
this being fills the night of the living woods

(from hayden carruth's "Contra Mortem")

pigeon, a new year tradition in self exploration

we each arrive about the size of a well fed pigeon,
the breadth of a man's two hands




and we burn, a small finite fire, in the oven of the world




nothing special
we're here

moving around in darkness




there is a plane of white cloth that collects light and holds it




like a sheet on the line holds the wind and sun





holds the smell of outside even after it's brought in





i love it
