So did Jori write back about that show at 186 Carpenter? HIM (sitting on the red bean bag): yes, but Carl Hersh pulled out. ME: why? HIM: he told me he didn’t want to be in the show. He doesn’t want to have a show ever again. He said that he doesn’t want to make sculptures for people to look at or buy. He doesn’t want to make sculptures at all; he only wants to make idols. Bipolar women have complicated pregnancies, child prodigies are sort of autistic, subordinates recognize their bosses in a photo array before they recognize themselves, and people can lip-read more easily if the lips they read are their own. The risk of knee osteoarthritis increases if one is a black woman or a white man who drinks soda or an Australian child who does not exercise much. Mayo Clinic doctors found that knee-replacement surgery benefits the poor more than it does the rich, and Hospital for Special Surgery doctors found that it causes the poorly educated more pain than it does the obese. A third of male Londoners suffer from penis blindness. A Suffolk police constable pleaded guilty to possession of Schedule 1 bird eggs, including those of marsh harriers, nightjars, and warblers. Coded messages were found in a capsule attached to the skeleton of a World War II carrier pigeon in a Bletchingly chimney. Shropshire badgers were being shot, then dumped by the road to make it look like an accident. Staff at Exmoor Zoo near Barnstaple deployed donated police riot shields against aggressive cranes. Authorities in Gaza captured an escaped crocodile who had been living in the sewers and eating local ducks and goats. “He had a lot of spirit in him,” said police lieutenant colonel Samih al-Sultan. “He wanted to be free.” Cartwheels & wine tasting. Jude dreams. Ice cubes melt faster than ice ovals. You know, just in case you were wondering. A small bouquet of encaustic monotypes ... the smoke mix rolled in the corn husk is made of a small amount of tobacco and then plentiful dogwood, osha, mullein, cherry bark and yerba santé. Sometimes when I’m cutting and crying and putting out cigarettes on my arms I think of my Mother of the Snipers and how she carried my limp body through the riot, how she wasn’t my mother but more like my mother than my mother. She was gunned down in another war: the war between my heart and the head of an eagle. If I were a member of the stampeding party? Electromagnetic Escher mazes made of gold, picking up emanations from the stars — or technology as myth achieved by other means. What he looks at is a night sky full of chalked lilies, a salamander, a motorcycle, two hands wielding a bow string and violin bow (primitive string instrument, fire maker?), an octagon of a zodiac, an outline of the great lakes, and to the left of the boy, the C clef (the one violas use). There are also numbers 2, 3, 5. And as the many tribes of winged fowl, wild geese or cranes or long-necked swans on the Asian mead by the streams of Caystrius, fly this way and that, glorying in their strength of wing, and with loud cries settle ever onwards, and the mead resoundeth; even so the many tribes poured forth from ships and huts into the plain of Scamander, and the earth echoed wondrously beneath the tread of men and horses. So they took their stand in the flowery mead of Scamander, numberless, as are the leaves and the flowers in their season. Even as the many tribes of swarming flies that buzz to and fro throughout the herdsman’s farmstead in the season of spring, when the milk drenches the pails, even in such numbers stood the long-haired Achaeans upon the plain in the face of the men of Troy. We were always willing.
