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

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
