door suite (for M.G.)


door 1


a door opens
is an airy space of wooden legs
invitation to sitting & dining
the possibility of indigestion & discussion
of furni-
ture


door 2

perhaps
door
perceives its
own
agressive nature
closes it
self to
us


door 3

door
knobs
i nod not
like asleep
but as a
yes
turn & o
pen
like hand
writing
changed
a
field





door 4

we enter
door
split
from violence
the room
crowded veils
a film en
velopes
eyes
the shark

door 5

day is
air connecting
dots
(do not hold the doors)
is smooth dream
job

glish is
night

do you ever dot your
eyes
before you
look?


door 6

a.
boarded
X
train
to night to
view your collection
medio tiempo
at the center of how- to- please
tiempo completo
the law still questioning itself
trabajo.......alert?
at the median of howstoautoplease
evacuated meself from this
emergency
emerged informed but still un-
knowing
bound
delayed between this door
& the other

b. for m.g.
longer stronger
& lost
time is changing
all the time
shadow on impassable door
opening itself within
the light
within the artificial light
an
X on auto alert
this cold/spread handling us like
a game of hard scrabble
within the house i live
                M
   on       a  &Nbsp  huge cube
            Missing    M

a window is sometimes a way out.


door 7

"people come & go
close the door

i just don't long

4. creature dream minus the dreamer

      at 126th Carmeela enters the bodega
      asks what her name is
      2 men approach her w/a 40 in their hands
      speaking dots   -     she joins  them
@#$%&*#@$   como se llama ??????
      ?????como me llama  ????   
     
            the mass become empty
              the emptiness  mass
 both become    finger prints 
     ))))))))((((((((a language    all their own  
                                             a pretext for signing 
    sounding singing  speaking   writing   creating

5. bird dream 


652

timbre of  doow
long shadows
bad weather
so afraid
the red speckled bird
downing
it is raining lightly
i am shooting a rabbit

feed that bites the hand
atroph inbelment w(one)
excuse be perferated 
prefer to eat the foot for luck
tin whilt good temper ate meant
in all things
