Flower Area

a free and loose association of gestures of the hands

a free and loose association of the specific gestures associated with words

eventually wildflowers will spontaneously grow from that abandoned lot

I took your hand

and yours too

I took all the hands and in a psychic gesture tried to put them all together but nothing really happened

(so wait and see)

a loose association of eyes watching out for the right conditions, for the unique alchemy of a certain place and a certain time

(rare, not to be repeated)

A loose association of hands working to build words,

or picking wildflowers and redistributing the seeds

maps read out of a series of tan lines

and erasing all the lines on another map

a tall tall lighthouse

(where?)

a free and loose association of discrete points in space and time, and the complete amalgam of the territories between them
