Spent the night talking
commercial design, diaries
“shaky out-of-focus 16mm movies”.
Master of the wig
“wrapped away from the world”
shadowy world, primary domain.
Ultimately he would let go -
“Billboard Promised Land”.
Liked to stand back with Desire
large and uninhibited
then a tight close-up, eye less coy
couch performing acts, an on-screen erection
the influence seems unmistakable.
Already on the curriculum
the young man with a camera
later to reassess the cluster of names
the necessary precursors - semen as wisdom
succession of the holy spirits.
as difficult as that of any siblings
threatened to blow their cover.
About semblance in some ways gladly unresolved
never really determined
in or out trajectory
art stardom as a swish affair.
“Khakis in barns!” To be like a master
homage with spirits
with soul, with intelligence
a miniature world
“worth inherent in everything”.
Search for dross
“they can be joined and made one”
piss on metal, absence of anything more
“fanatical as a menagerie”
the empty chair, a belief in resurrection.
“a hubristic compendium and enclosure”
look, then look again, sheer surface
a blank flickering blue screen.
