Finally, I have come to think of frogs as emblematic of that relationship -- that I barely understand -- between the mysteries of the transfer of life from one generation to the next and our irrevocable, necessary commitment to the use of nuclear energy. This association of images is ambiguous for me; I do not know how it started, nor whether I should trust it. I suspect that, like other preconceptions about biological "facts," it defies explanation and can be stated only as an admitted bias for whatever facts there are to be discovered.

My mind turns to my breath, one.
My mind watches my breath, two.

yes
(i'm writing, and what i usually do when writing is put songs/albums/playlists on repeat, and so the music comes in and out of consciousness but at the same time creates this steady non-disruptive rhythm/tone)

are you gonna play hooky from work to go to the Weds. thing?

I'm guest lecturing Zeena's class on tuesday, so two days of hooky (& three consecutive days of Mills) is probably pushing it. Maybe, though.

In the beginning, there were rocks
and on those rocks with harder rocks
we learned to make a million bruises
to spell out things like "we were here" and "watch your water"

he sat and thought about obedience
he had resolved that, of the two kinds,
the kind that takes every message of order, rule, law as error
that everybody who passes along these messages
that loathes the buildings
that contradicts the inner voice
that resists, in short, was his
and the other kind...
how could it be?
