all in?

then Mary took a pound of ointment of spikenard, very costly, and annointed the feet of Jesus, and wiped his feet with her hair, and the house was filled with the odor of the ointment.

if thats the case and hair is holy, then this scarf (or turban) is the only alternative to shaving the head. washing this hair over and over. or the fence sitter alice dellal: half in half out.

three three

we do it in threes.
the age christ died: 33.
the year He died: AD 33 (allegedly)
april 3? resurrection after 3.
birth of three (civil contracts)
ciao age 33, i wondered if it would be
the end of me.
nope, on to 34. whoopee!

strange bedfellows

linds and i cliff jumping together (after taking the bar exam)
trust...three times over (photo)
I will be rocks, I will be water.
I will leave this to my daughter.
lift your head up in the wind.
When you feel yourself grow colder
wrap the night around your shoulders
and I will be with you even then

Therefore, the value and quality of any love is determined solely by the lover himself. It is for this reason that most of us would rather love than be loved. Carson McCullers The Ballad of the Sad Cafe

for the love of sharpies

"It comes to this: the use of a man, by himself and thus by others, lies in how he conceives his relation to nature, that force to which he owes his somewhat small existence...he will be able to listen, and his hearing through himself will give him secrets objects share" (Charles Olson Projective Verse) and this is the purpose of putting the Self aside.

once we have a bird on our shoulder

"expressing something being struggling" although "any one could come to be certain that he was clearly expressing something". certainly struggling.
Look at what a thousand blue thousand white
Thousand blue white thousand.
Blue thousand white thousand blue thousand.
White thousand blue wind today and two arms
Blowing down the road.
Anne Carson, Plainwater

"The greater part of natural truth is hidden in processes too minute for vision and in harmonies too large, in vibrations, cohesions and in affinities...they are possible only because they follow objective lines of relations in nature herself." Ernest Fenollosa Poetics of the New American Poetry

pura vida

Unsweet terrain
We can't be impatient
it is too short,
Moments not knowing
why they are they, "they are there,"

you hint
             small degrees.

Baby lotus hands,
happy with adultness.

Vana and Vanessa 1980.
Jouissance is a critical concept as a source. Dora, the hysteric woman, like Medusa, haunts patriarchy. She explodes the Law of the Father as her words come to us in twisted form rising up against the author of her story...but finding passionate joy in voice.
