How Does It Work 2004

  How Does It Work?

You’ve no idea

What you are doing.

No idea.

You play a chord,

(Each day a chord)

No methods, systems,

Preconceptions –


They’re there,


As mattress stuffing –



So that chaos can’t destroy you.

Resting on it

You create.

A kind of waiting on

Creation’s intimations,

And of things available

You spread your fingers.

Out it comes:


Sounding fine,

Texture, color, line

Just right for the occasion.
