On The Ashcloud

The invisible ash, the hook in the sky, all continent condensed in a hot stream of ash ...[?] pulling asunder,, rendering,, [?] the breaking bridge to the unseen world. Images of women. Writing the unseen. Writing it out of me, the earth, the soil-noise, the not-silence, in favour of horses chanting etcetera. No word for the lady [of McDonalds] who, looking, over the bench where the ketchup squeezing, refilling, misuse of the ketchup [happens, she says:] "don't hit it please, don't hit, do this like this, hold your cup [she demonstrates] fill it full." etc...

Frozen, Mid-crossing

there are Lions and Tigers and
Prehistoric Men with
their Roughly Hewn
Tools and Small
Inkling of the
And they're Down there
on the Sea Floor
Still in the Dogger Mountains
