Mind Scattered




The window blinds rustle slightly
I found Burton's Arabian Nights in a second hand bookstore.
A thousand to one, destined appointment.

My mind is scattered in fragments,
a thought of Giacometti's
sculpture as movement, and stillness,
though all things move.

All quiet the children are at school.
Two regrets.
Never mastered Latin, or Greek.

Left with clay, wax, hunks of space,
defining stuff, stuff for defining
color or line
cups of tea or coffee
and the discipline of fasting.

Bits of code . .
I read the menu in tears,
Sailing through
a sea of words.
