leaves at R's window



  1. it is the question, isn't it, where is in, where is out and just what might be the difference? or importance - could it be about importance? are we too engrossed in barriers?

    this is gorgeous.


  2. thank you, erin.

    do you know this most wonderful poem by Joris? you can hear it sung by Nicole Peyrafitte here:

    If the light is the soul
    then soul is what's
    all around me.

    It is you,
    it is around you too,
    it is you.

    The darkness is inside me,
    the opaqueness of organs folded
    upon organs--

    to make light in the house of
    the body--
    thus to bring the
    outside in,
    the impossible job.

    And the only place to become
    the skin
    the border, the inbetween, where
    dark meets light, where I meets

    In the house of world the
    many darknesses are surrounded
    by light.

    To see the one, we need
    the other / it cuts both ways

    light on light is blind
    dark on dark is blind

    light through dark is not

    dark through light is movement
    dark through light becomes,
    is becoming,
    to move through
    light is becoming,

    is all
    we can know.
