EN PLEIN AIR

En Plein Air

I scroll thru
Hockney’s
Yosemite Suite
painted on
his iPad
en plein air
exactly where
I wanna be
among purplish
redwood forests
within earshot
of Ribbon Fall
I travel online

THIS HIGH ROPE OF WATER

In this high rope of water
twisting from times long gone
down the famous falls
I have bound my vows
for ages still to come

Zōki, ‘Ionushi’s Pilgrimage to Kumano’ tr. Meredith McKinney, in Travels with a Writing Brush.

the waterfall in the Twin Peaks title sequence
cascades through my dreams I see your face
& feel like I am falling
upwards

*

picture the traffic lights
‘there at midnight
changing for nobody’
wonder whether quoting Mort
is quoting Mort quoting Lynch
whether any words / thoughts
/ lines / poems are original
whether love is unoriginal
too

*

no

*

I love you
because you some typefaces
more than you love me
while I love you less
than I love some rock formations
and that is why you love me
example: Gill Sans
example: Durdle Door

*

previously on Twin Peaks I was falling
upwards
because you make me feel like a waterfall
so in the morning I enjoy damn fine coffee
and picture midnight on a moonless night
when the traffic lights change
only for you & I
baby
only for us
