Three short pieces

July 30, 2006


Mingling. The savvy of words, the sail, the shine. Soulsolid, brainlit, fingerplucked, earbent. And that’s before clothes! Talk to me.


Warmth of the Body

Something to notice – the warmth of your body imparted to objects you were touching, but no longer touch: your bedclothes, your underwear, your necklace of stones.


The Furry Inquisitive Snout

I understand that writing is a furry inquisitive snout, poking itself into small and cluttered places, searching for choice bits of trash, unusual secrets, maybe a fragment of sky blue egg fallen from the nest. A furry inquisitive snout, a naked prehensile tail.

    Memorable and unusual words here, Catherine. So nice to have you with us!

    I love the environment you’ve created here.

    I wonder, sometimes, if the fragment isn’t the best form for both philosophy and poetry.

    Warm thoughts for a long winter night.

    I have to echo what the others said, especially St.Antonym’s remark. These beautifully crafted fragments are like those pebbles you notice on a beach and take home to introduce them into your world, your thoughts. The “necklace of stones”. I hope you are gathering many more of such fragments, Catherine.
