Global Notation

These mutterings, these yarns
the hole in the bagel
is the sum total of obliteration.

all around the walking wounded.

Gutter speak comes easy these days,
It's all moving too fast to be caught
in a thinking web and what begins
to spin has no pattern. The lace-makers
have ceased to exist.

The era of limp hand-shakes
is gaining momentum, seeps through
luke-warm and sweaty, the over spill
of random feeling, random thought.

What passes for affirmative
can be bought. It's bland & blends
into everything., It's on the tip of my tongue
I can't say it, not because I don't want to,
but because there's nothing to say,
nothing at all.

Agneta Falk, from It's Not Love It's Love
Put your Heart to the Wall and Listen
,Casia della poesia , Salarno
Multimedia Edizioni

 

 

 

Invocation

Let there be cool linen 
and lovers resting between sheets 
humming a small heaven between them 

Let there be a settlement of snow 
long green veils of rain 
and radiant squalors 

Let the pulse beat within us 
rich as salt, hot as sun 
giving time its edge 

Let us steep tansy, coriander 
and cloves in wine 
drinking deep its magic cures 

Let us bring the knower to the known 
for there are no second comings 
and what waits is just a breath away

Ruth Daigon
(Mar. 3, 1923 ~ Feb. 17, 2010)

After great pain, a formal feeling comes

After great pain, a formal feeling comes -
The Nerves sit ceremonious, like Tombs–
The stiff Heart questions 'was it He, that bore,'
And 'Yesterday, or Centuries before'?

The Feet, mechanical, go round –
A Wooden way
Of Ground, or Air, or Ought –
Regardless grown,
A Quartz contentment, like a stone –

This is the Hour of Lead –
Remembered, if outlived,
As Freezing persons, recollect the Snow–
First – Chill – then Stupor – then the letting go –

by Emily Dickinson
(March 6, 1806-1861)

from The Poems of Emily Dickinson,
R. W. Franklin Editor
(Harvard University Press, 1999)

Artists & Editions: A Publication
in Memory of Steven Leiber (1957–2012)

October 18, 2014 – March 29, 2015

Steven Leiber, a San Francisco native, made his reputation as a collector specializing in ephemera—brochures, flyers, posters, and exhibition announcements—designed by
artists in the 1960s and 1970s.

Artists & Editions: A Publication
He maintained a gallery in the basement of his grandmother’s house in the city’s Marina district, calling it Steven Leiber’s Basement. As Leiber sorted and organized ephemera relating to Fluxus art, Beat and Concrete poetry movements, and the 1960s counterculture, he invited art scholars, curators, artists, and ephemera aficionados to explore his inventory.
