from On the Road Home

"..."Words are not forms of a single word.
In the sum of the parts, there are only the parts.
The world must be measured by eye."..."

Sadly, I am no longer able to write poetry, only quote it. My crisis of language began several years ago and has made barren the fields and has massacred the seed. In me, language has not known cultivation all the while.

Tonight I start the journey from Luxor to Cairo to Madrid and to Chicago where I will be in the family fold for one week, so I'll be away from email for the next few days and not on the internet a lot in the next couple weeks.
