waiting for annie leibovitz...

Waiting for Annie Leibovitz
Shows and portraits

Gauzy
From the tops of tall buildings
Boxing pavilions subway stations
And
On
The
Stars
Walk of Fame
Smoky and formal and New York

Ten cents a dance

touch and go...

A geranium waved this morning
Five finches too
And three ladders aiming at the high chimney
Across the street
And the one sky
Streaked blue
Light
For the sailors and jazz musicians
Coming in from Tulsa on the redeye

On the downbeat

And a gull did a touch and go on the high chimney
Just now

what once was oil by jean deveber...


end of summer garden oil by jean deveber...


lady gaga again...


subtle elegant safe...

The early morning light
Against the movie house
Color!
You are right!
A rosy band comes through the cream
The accent
Is
Pavement
Subtle elegant safe

Like
In a picture I know

when you write something every morning - - ...

When you write something every morning - -

The hallways clamor
Corners
And
Seek

The new gallery down the street

this week with tony bennett, lady gaga...


autumn morning...

Autumn morning
A star in the fog
And
As only in this place
The trees are raining
In the still and balmy
Autumn morning
And
At first sun
A beginning of a sail

rushes of snow and leaves gone away...

The curve of the swan
Great heron

Trails of geranium and cinnamon
Rushes of snow and leaves gone away

Then,
April

everywhere...

Cool breezes this morning
Crisp and cool
The bay
The reach
And
Everywhere
Distances
Everywhere

And so forth

Thursday, September 18, 2014

at dawn...

In fog on the roofs everywhere
No bay
At dawn
Or moon print
Wind
Or talk
Just the flash of lights from trucks
Running
To the boats

To the chapels and cathedrals
Of the sea

josh white (1914-1969)...


good show...

The silhouette of the movie house
A travel of car lights red and white
By
Reflected on the marquee
Dancing on its yellow bulbs
Under a super moon under a cloud
In the shadow of "the script" a painting on my wall
Jack blowing Scrapple From The Apple on tenor
Or Stella as beautiful as could be
The A train of clouds passing by
Be
Lights across the bay coming up, the E train
Screeching by to a halt
Darien! Yuh Darien!
And back at the Plaza last night
With whoever?
Good show
Good show

on the bay...

The smooth sun on the bay
A finch in the cool and the angel dish
Smooth sun, sparrow and finch;
No gulls and no crows
??

Just a car on the street
Now

And
Goldfinches!
The morning is awake!

On
The smooth sun
On the bay

the street...

The street, 52nd Street
Gone
Lester Young! Lester Young!

the road...

The road
Slopes and shores paths and ways to the sea
Morning the best time of night
Are
Late songs of the wanderer
Meadows
Fields
Stories of the best time of morning,
Night

Josh White,
Josh White!

fred and ginger...

The movie house played old movies last night
Flap, flap
Smell of popcorn, licorice
And soda drinks

The movie house played
Swing Time
On the marquee of the old Temple theater
Swing Time
Starring Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers

In every gin joint in every town in every corner
Dance hall and dance pavilion

allen ginsberg (1926-1997)...


"Poetry is the one place people can speak their original human mind. It is the outlet for people to say in public what is known in private." -Allen Ginsberg

fog and the far horn...

Fog and the far horn
Like the wind
Talk to you
Up
Here
The landscapes blanketed
Meadows and hills
And the sea
Calm
Now
The finches are here
And the flowers
And the far horn,
Far
