—for Diana Manister

“when you search the

spontaneous thing”

—Larry Eigner, “The Fine Life,”

On My Eyes

*

When I search for—the thing

The spontaneous thing—already there

It becomes even more—spontaneous

Do it yourself—try it & see

*

What blooms—in drought

Isn’t you or me—it’s intuition

The other radio—the Red Sox one

The Orphée one—just ask Cocteau

*

Heurtebise—your chauffeur

Eurydice—your wife

Maria Casares—La princesse

The Land of Dis—Spontaneous now

*

Words—your Rolls Royce

Language—your motorcycle escort

Writing—thru the liquid mirror

Runtime—Saturday matinee

*

The more—you read

The more—you write

The more—you cleave

The more—you see

Three-Way Poetics

“we  got trinaural hearing”
—Larry  Eigner, “Do it yrself,” 
 Look at the  Park
*

Now I’ve got—three “ears”

The front one—the back one

The one—coming down the street
