and in a variety of temporal modes
fluid time set free from linearity
an open space that is motile
multiple orders...multiple forms
mappings, cosmic calculations, flowering of the world, corrosiveness, desire, wonder

quantum folds, deep space, mischievous orbits, all-ocean worlds, seismic tremors,
traversing all manner of __________

What becomes of or issues from

Why won't the cool air

Limited, weak, vulnerable, hesitant, quiet, silent, hidden, trivial, damaged,
Private, Aloof, withdrawn, demurring, reticent, austere,
Cryptic, elliptical, gnomic, puzzling, riddling, obscure, hermetic,
Sutherland on Stein, on Language:
"vivid sudden willful happening"
"the movement and life of ideas as they actually eventuate in writing"
[self-contained, reflexive, devoted, folded-in-upon]
"the very tense and elegant behavior of the syntax"
"meant these lines of verse to be as attenuated and disembodied as drawing of Picabia"
"inveterate sequence and blur of overtones [English] has in normal verse"
Latin serves as "color or pedal"; American-nes: "severity, edigness, what you will"
syntax as diagram, as drawing
dry, tense lines, but sumptuous accumulation
making everything of verbal rudiments, staying with them, making everything of them, living in their sacredness and preciousness; purity, tenderness, and all but religiosity of intention
redressing "debauched language"
Postponement, imminence, pending, impending.
"Thinking 'til, 'til, 'til you turn a corner and..."
Noticing: "just the mere turning of the head
when something catches your attention," allowing
it to absorb you, even for a moment.
And someone understands Negative Capability
as the capacity to notice some particular thing
as an object
of consideration, of feeling, thought, even of language,
but without quite
evaluating or indexing it, without
quite tagging it with meaning-and-location so that
it accords with some inured pragmatics already
in place. Naming is OK, since it is
gratuitous; to make and use names is not
necessarily to affix meanings or constrain one's
self to the bind of a realist fantasy, nor
does it mean that what you notice is apart
from you forever and unreal, perforce your naming it.
Allowing THE ADVENTITIOUS as such. Full stop on that
Swirl it and the color will change,
the tone resolve into a desired via media.
We're young and yet we're
keeping track of the ways soft tissue
is already giving out, glitching,
pulling down and away from bone.
These're signs but they're also facts,
every particular source of worry and pain,
periodontal pockets, crow's feet, liver spots.
The Future Beneath Us
so that we can care
for it so it's not before
or beyond us because
we the people are and ought
to be foremost and top
most because even the idea
that time itself is ahead
or in front of us facing us
down is bothersome
unacceptable so that
future is tenable ground
proper object for our genius
our force and past can
be released skyward to
float and to be waved at
because if the future's
beneath us we can fuck
it missionary style
so that we can care for it
because we care for
what lies underneath our care

glimmers, sport. It's the initial,
disturbances on some ground.
The secondary is the final,
the sense of the instant having
two sides. It resists, obstructs,
slaps. The secondary is
materials subject to entropy, gravity,
and other laws. Say force.
The tertiary is not third
in a series or hierarchy, but
the absolute, immaterial
mediation of primary and secondary.
It is the meaning, that is, the effect,
of time passing, duration;
that is, it is
continuity and the propensity of things
to learn, take habits, accrue relations.
Call it 'love,' if you like.
Say, 'there is no separation
between mind and matter.'
Say, 'from the moment there are
signs, there is nothing but meaning.'
