a gown but not wearing it. Being
a kept gown. Out at night in the Chagall painting the gown flies with
many-colored goats. If I fly with goats it means I am unbuttoned from
the cold rock, it means the night no longer owes itself only to the
legs of off-black insects or to the nihilistic goats who
believe in the mountain. It means I stopped living on the mountain.
In the dark eye of the universe a gown orbits. I had not kept it.
Lonely gown, unbuttoned gown, you will fly with goats forever outside
of this world. Even gravity doesn’t want you.
