This just in.

" . . . music is a way of manipulating material . . ."

John Zorn

I've been listening to the podcasts of British poet Tom Raworth.

the way the white line
streaks across from left
to right
across the framed arbitrariness
of art
leaves me thinking
ah the frame
now i perceive
thrice removed
but still i recollect
the odor of drying paint
the aftermath of coupling
the kitchen the day after a party
basements
and restaurant alleys

but who can account then
for the sweeps of red
the blotches of off-white
the tan swath contoured
for no real purpose whatsoever
as if it's all rather thoughtless
anyway

only in the perceiving do
we verify
i perceive
and i think about my perceptions
i surmise the reality of those thoughts
and i play with the imagination
until i fall asleep
in the warm desert sun
