You As White Wall

January 4, 2012 1 comment

(when I try to understand what
I’m tracking my hands along
no entry or exit to the stucco
& although the this-then-that
is semipermeable)

(& there is paint roller in that, like
the one dropped from your roof, or
how before you are all mouth
and spirit bear roar)

the rest is render what to think
of you what to make of you

(no go white wall go
stay white wall, come)

Work hard that’s
all I did before, and then all I did
was drink; I’m boring,

in front of the razor wire
the man who says
no one has ever commented
on his eyes — how so?
they are blue and yellow
irises tumbling
a torrential garden
at Saint-Rémy

to prove it, I took his picture
but the eaves turned them black

but no problem, the man
who fixed doors for thirty years:
perhaps you need the Mexican sun
to see them? — steps out, smiling.
