Contents: Fado --
My skeleton --
My proteins --
Mosquito --
My eyes --
My species --
My corkboard --
My memory --
My weather --
In my wallet I carry a card --
My task --
My sandwich --
A well runs out of thirst --
In a room with many windows --
A photograph of a face half lit, half in darkness --
A cottony fate --
Cellophane : an assay --
Quartz clock --
My life was the size of my life --
Perspective : an assay --
Ordinary rain. Every leaf is wet --
Things keep sorting themselves --
I wake early --
In a kitchen where mushrooms were wasted --
Honey --
Hamper --
Florists' roses --
Mop without stick --
The problem --
In praise of being peripheral --
A chair in snow --
Like the small hole by the path-side something lives in --
Wet spring --
Many-roofed building in moonlight --
Anywhere you look --
Anatomy and making --
I cast my hook, I decide to make peace --
A person protests to fate --
Twelve pebbles --
I wanted only a little --
A common cold --
This morning, I wanted four legs --
Once, I --
In daylight, I turned on the lights --
How rarely I have stopped to thank the steady effort --
As a hammer speaks to a nail --
I sat in the sun --
Of amplitude there is no scraping bottom --
The one not chosen --
Snow in April --
February --
Three mornings --
Away from home, I thought of the exiled poets --
All souls --
In space --
Souvenir --
The must-mice --
The conversations I remember most --
Two linen handkerchiefs --
Works & loves --
Perspective without any point in which it might vanish --
Runner --
The beautiful austere room --
Not one moment of this a subtraction --
I profess the uncertain --
Zero plus anything is a world --
Entanglement --
Like two negative numbers multiplied by rain.
