space is where all the good stuff is happening
days of elementary pleasures:
lydia lunch, diamanda galas in the marble church. work on the land,
sow, saw, see, the dragon fruit, a fire, the chain.
there is a hole in the ground in our garden.
the red fox lives there.
he is a clever one.
he hides himself in written word.
he draws the world’s mechanism on a piece of paper and leaves it to us to decipher.
clever little fox.
