California Interest. Art. PAINTING (2.4.97 – 4.21.97) transcribes perceptions of ‘real’ things, demonstrate how the three-dimensional world might be ‘registered’ in lines running clear across the horizontal, two-dimensional page: 81 poems written in 81 consecutive days which mean to enact (i.e., make present) the world-as-painting/ painting-as-world that is my subject, just as Mondrian’s grids can be viewed as an ‘abstract’ enactment of how and what we actually see. Thus, for example, “fact (geometric)/ of lines a bird makes descending from upper left corner to the empty space immediately in front of it.”
