To start with the act
of writing the poem

It is always there, this way
to begin again      constructs itself
from nothing, from desire

Devours all: the circumstance, past history,

The moment turned upon itself     Ouroboros
reflexive     an intentional
flaw in time     white hole
spawning undeducible events
log jam dynamited     the waters boil


Sept. 75
