I narrow my eyes but she ignores me to protect herself as a whole a Chinese woman pulls a splintered piece of ivory from her thigh and is momentarily safe In her handbag she carries blueprints of impossible angles Is her life becoming a mathematical paradox? I crawl through the ventilation equipment of this structure trying to trap theoretical air into visibility There is a distance and a reason for distance that I cannot comprehend Are there waves of time already rearranging my cells? a Chinese woman opens her red mouth and oxygen escapes black, pink, red; I would put back her breath Page 51 if I could find a bag or a hollow reed to carry it in but would she allow me to interfere?

And she said, "Yes, my love, a little" and so you see, I am not surprised Last night I lost my piece of rope and my china pail and I shall never have them back again Strangely, I am resigned to this but each noon, huge, skeletal animals with leather beaks fly overhead and drop pieces of parchment exactly where I sit The parchments say, Look in the castle or Look beneath the oak planks of the bridge I am not sure but I think these messages are from you Each day, the notes grow more insistent A feather falls in a shower of white sparks A dark bird settles on my arm and teaches me how to produce white eye rays It comes so easily to me that I suspect I must have known how to do this long ago but I have forgotten everything I am beginning to look forward to the hour when your animals arrive (I am sure now that they are your animals) Do you think you could send me a skull cap a bit of grape tartar, and a bone?
