On the Edge
red bird blue bird joined by a green line. the turtle waits patiently. recall feeling. there is good. there are wings. the gift of the stevens poem— “The Ultimate Poem Is Abstract” the tape holds the book together. ideas & flowers & birds. many. observe. circles on wood. we dream compassion.
