Example text

I needed to touch something, and suddenly there you were. There we were with the birds dropping down a thousand feet into spring, that place named for the future.  Each high note of exaltation is sloughed off as some distant troubadour's outdated posturing.  They'll ride the air down, testing the strength of forever, their time between bridge and rapid water. The coffeehouse empties except for one student at the next table; head bent, she holds The Fine Art of Torture.  She hears nothing of wedding brass, and on my oak table I see no hearts carved, but a swastika sliced in wood.

Cold my fathering weather. Page 61 <><><><><><><><><><><><> A man hesitates in a field, reluctant to go farther than what he knows. In the starlight he senses something he never could get to, and murmurs another September, just what we all need. His son stares up at him, then out at the cold distances to the stars, marks this as memory. L. Page 63 FOUR Page 65 Primer I had a dream in winter, sad thoughts with one mountain, trees, and two animals. I walked out on a gray and white cliff, not thinking of those days with you, until the view turned treacherous all that space beyond the edge, fog or smoke rising up.
