"Certain words and images
or parts of images
have been chipped away..."
From "Disclosures" by Michael Palmer
Looking at much work now that the semester is starting up, so back to posting about once a week. But I was so happy to get out and snag some pixels!
Have a wonderful week, all y'all.

"No te amo como si fueras rosa de sal, topacio
o flecha de claveles que propagan el fuego:
te amo como se aman ciertas cosas oscuras,
secretamente, entre la sombra y el alma."
From "Soneto XVII" by Pablo Neruda
It's summer in Central Texas. Slant cumulus clouds and supercells.
Off to the farmer's market tomorrow; maybe fresh eggs and hopefully wandering with a camera Sunday.
As for the rest, petting cats and teasing The Mur, and of course reading for school.

"The wrought planes and hinges of things
Strange, held-off symmetry, axis of waterline
rubbed, smeared, edge-shifted
What is real then made more so..."

"...knowing I had everything I wanted,
but like Midas was silent and stiff with the gold I had touched,
felt always as if I had been buried under a ton of diamonds,
still feel the dust of them glinting on me as I drive across country..."

"...hooked themselves—bamboo diviner
Bent their way
From "The Pier: Under Pisces" by James Merrill
Slept almost all day.
One more road trip (this week, to Kalamazoo) and then a less intense schedule, or so I hope.

"...she loved worms,
blackening the moon of her nails
with mud and slugs,
root gnawing grubs,
and the wing case of beetles."
From "The Woman Who Loved Worms" by Colette Inez
The. Semester. Is. Over.
Am off in San Jose at a trade show, the Mur abides, the cats need more petting.
But beauty is walking in the world...
