“I remember waking up one
morning with the look of that
page in my mind.”
—Clark Coolidge,
Postmodern Poetry:
The Talisman Interviews

i wake up—in the morning
with the page—in my mind
the layout of—the cleave
long-lines—becoming one

the cleave voice—sketching
provoking me—to visualize
the phantom page—again
the usual way—linking lines

the overall—arrangements
pages waiting—patiently
to be written—to be typed
creating them—back again

cleaving—the darkness
fingers typing—magic keyboard
words of light—onto a screen
