through a window the amazing takes place. why a night walk is always worth walking. fishbowls. suddenly after dark people forget streets still extend. no they aren't left floating. untouchable yellow static in dark sea. observe shadows skipping across bright hollows. not intentional. not on the look-out. but it's a draw isn't it. lantern fish. the pull of shiny things. why we notice stars. or stages. maybe also why they forget us noticing. that hinges on position. previously: arguments, suppers, compulsive weight-lifting, the man always thinking on his fist, kitchen-counter couple coupling. the last almost unbelief. but too very real to be otherwise. take off your ballcap, son. or i don't know. go team, go! sinks in: everyone/everywhere.

when i returned i unleashed the hounds. set out again. the catalpa at the razed place is blooming. how's that for out of sorts. broad leaves. broad accents. i crept through the grasses. such a strong word. and inaccurate because my sneak was broken. tripped through some thorniness. snapped off two small branches. tripped doubly leaving. i know how to break cadence.

morse code has become my current obsession. check it: dah-dah dit-dah di-dah-dit dah-di-dah-dah. it might be me. but i'm only beginning so it might be nothing. you can use lights. lights! like music it's referential. if whole is so long half is half as long. of course. fourths. eighths. only here it's dit/dah. and similarly it's widely understood. meaning language is no barrier. code is cool. i approve.

to bed!
