My eye burns beyond its chemicals. Page 83 6: Across the garden two birds call into my sleep. What was it I was dreaming?  Landlocked, I was only divided by desire. In sleep, when each has lost the enterprise of self, and the heart no longer steers within the body's limits, then sun, moon and skull are equal in the mind. On a sea bed, or bed of linen, the same skeletal thrash in darkness: to choke on water as on air. Desire's just the interval in birdsong. Page 84 The two call across the distance of the bed.

Throughout the snowstorm there is a sunset going on as the woman watches the child in the sled whose cap is coated with the identical blue alp. A snowstorm is always about to happen. Here is a country under siege. The children in the cottage feel the world tip over, and with an astronaut's notion of gravity, turn over in their beds and dream. But the child in the sled in the paperweight is always caught outside regardless of the weather. He stares at the sky that is always collapsing and sees my magnified lunar face rise, wishing the light or my hand's heatwave would melt the immutable snow.

Fear is in the breeze.  To China? This is how the Christmas turkey feels as the white meat is carved from him. This is the loneliness of the last tooth in the gum-plateau when you are hungry and the body comes on with all the commotion of the Industrial Revolution. This is how the skinny madonna feels as she shies away from the angel in Martini's Annunciation. The room is full of terrible surprises each time you walk in. Sometimes the strangers have wings. They're always wanting you to do them a favor.
