Marcia Arrieta


borges, o’keeffe, paz, dickinson, miro

compositions despite ourselves dust words translated/un bridges gardens
ascending transcending plotting fulfilling the star in the tree the wave the storm
the roads letters consciousness torn pasted gravity unrestricted tossed in wind
the hand the eye the conversations like molecules like leaves like windows
like walls attempting to translate/un abstraction concrete the silence the rooms untraditional conventional the desert the erosion the water half-light no light
the lives left behind

consider the dialogue(s)




thorns in nothingness


I wrap my mind in oblivion

Montaigne tries to reach me—

a meditative existence

like tree or branch





transmigration


metronome transpire white roses/rain contemplate the oak (all pond life is
protected
)

refraction air/glass mailbox flautist flashback swordplay precision wizard or
white-footed mouse




survival(ist)

correspond
expectations
beyond
careful
unphrased

digressions

inner
what
remains

excerpt

a wall
or
syntax awry

conjunction
knowledge
or
the top of a mountain

correction
isolation
or
memory
without
restraint





immediate survival


in the silence we draw the abstract, hear the lyric, the voyages almost tangible
