“A Poem of Poets”
Beloved Enrico made this for me and Grant and it’s so beautiful I cried. I’m lucky to count these artists and poets as my friends, and I really do hope that we tell these poems and stories together in a garden (virtual reality or “real life”) when we’re old.

In Peril - John Atkinson Grimshaw
I have been having a recurring dream that looks just like this, and I throw myself into the sea.

To breathe and stretch one’s arms again
to breathe through the mouth to breathe to
breathe through the mouth to utter in
the most quiet way not to whisper not to whisper
to breathe through the mouth in the most quiet way to
breathe to sing to breathe to sing to breathe
to sing the most quiet way.
To sing to light the most quiet light in darkness
singing light in darkness.
To sing as the host sings in his house…
— John Taggart, from “Slow Song for Mark Rothko”
