The roadtrip with Suzanne. Passenger seat. 2011.

I’ll never get why so few people read poetry. This poem slays me – that first line – Banish Air from Air. I love this as much as any song. Emily Dickinson and Brian Eno are my thought pattern heroes.

Banish Air from Air by Emily Dickinson

Banish Air from Air –
Divide Light if you dare –
They’ll meet
While Cubes in a Drop
Or Pellets of Shape
Fit –
Films cannot annul
Odors return whole
Force Flame
And with a Blonde push
Over your impotence
Flits Steam.
