A Start

~ ~ ~ ~ ~

lovely are the forms of thinking that make a thinking work

in the matter of a life of living a thinking thought is you
in the manner of a life of living a thought thinking is you

you do not leave anything behind of yourself when you yourself leave
but neither do you take anything away for you are always present

a gift of presence is a form of being real in the articulation of being

you might see how you think through the shapes of language
you might see how you think variously through the various shapes of language

what you do and make is what you make possible by doing it
what you give is the possibility of making do with possibility

the shapes of waves are the shapes of tongues in the process of speaking

some marks are signs of what is left out of something
sometimes an s disappears into the sound of a word and there is only one of them

silence is the sound of esses disappearing from the words around them
nothing can be whispered with the s to give it a sound

some marks are invisible upon the body because they do not appear there
some marks we carry with us like an s-less whisper

what we mark on the floor is time so we know how to dance through it
no matter how many changes we are given we still forget how to dance

the sound of feet on the floor is almost the sound of thinking yourself away
even when you don’t want to think yourself away you move in that direction
