boomerang echoes

“(…) a mystic impulse: I know what I do not know.”  —Roland Barthes, A Lover’s Discourse

Stephen Gill, from the series The Pillar (2016-2019)

three crows gathered in the park below
scheming about what I cannot answer

what emerges after such random accuracy?

when I cook dinner, I cook as if I’m still starving
generous portions to feed a family of six

this tumble of disparate images becomes my language

maybe the sky whimpered that day
when ignored as the somnolent protagonist

what sells is the aside but what moves is the chase

maybe this is both a memory
and a poem
