Sequel #3


Something slightly askew

viewed through the entwined

fingers of both hands

gave us perspective

the eye corrected by the other eye

open and shut

It was the Renaissance monkeyed with

false though practical deductions

arrived at during sleep

The arm extended with the thumb upraised

enters the constellation

with good reason

these last three days

the sighter has been breathing the fish

tied to his belt


—Ray DiPalma

 


Ray DiPalma's books include Letters, Provocations, and Motion of the Cypher. He lives in New York City and teaches at the School of Visual Arts.
