we're down to today and tomorrow in Halifax, leaving after
an early morning get-together with David Clark on Friday.
the winds were around 50 mph today and a cool rain. like
slimemolds we're gathering resources, coming together, then
flying down the corridors to Providence. I'm worried about
the border crossing and returning; Azure says that my
anxiety level has greatly increased over the past two years.
I feel in my heart of hearts that I've got to stretch to
hold things together, that things threaten to fly apart if
I'm not vigilant. what kind of a life is this? the flowers
appeared out of nowhere near harborside in Dartmouth.

the blankness of white or silver, pregnant with possibility.
But there is no possibility without boundary!
there are no boundaries, i'm feeling sick, nauseous.
There's nowhere to stand, nothing to do, nothing to see!
at sea there are meaningless clouds and idiotic waters.
Nothing to hang onto, I'm drowning in tepid waters!
an edge would have amounted to something, or a corner.
No corners, floors, ceilings, balloons, chairs!
the blankness is the insufferability of warm spoiled milk.
There's nothing to drink, bellies are swollen and bursting!
solace is the memory of the signifier, truth is its erasure.
I remember some letters, wait, there must be more!
the clouds are like stones, waters like mountains.
Just a minute, I'll sit! I'll think this through! Survive!
