you can say what you think
without having to think it

so you don't think what you say?

i don't know what i think
before i say it.
why; what do you think?

appearances are formless
like dreams--
which we forget.

i don't doubt it--
my gods do not call
for help.

the power
to destroy a thing
is our achilles heel.
i do not know; i forget.
so you write.
i sing strangely
of rock and rain--
oils and pastels.
oils and pastels.
oils and pastels.

winds that stain.
up at dawn and down
at dusk--
a songbird.
