Music at the Heart of Thinking #23

From:   Music at the Heart of Thinking. Red Deer: Red Deer College Press, 1987.


Point with a stick better still a charred one that's it slots or bumps to catch your foot or your breath forked branches everywhere when we need them a la slingshots in the gulley transphrastic symmetry sticks to the point I keep running into this "soft pad of (the) feet" not as Mallarme would say of the hero (la) talon nu or it could be Bakhtin's jivey beak (de la Cosa's eyes included) the prehended world Ah! your "print still visible drifting out to sea" dialogue on the contrary the same but trees bucked and split or shadows even that's what style is.
