Approbations 633
—after Mathias Eick’s The Door
 
 
 
Woven, not-fleece       however
soft-yes,
                        alive.  With-openings
soft greetings
perform
                        aerial reputational                    impressing
salutation
hope
need
enjoy (we)
you
may become
                                    highlighted shadow of our bodies
 
following
                                                your
 entering unknown expansion
of physical osculation, privileged.  
 
 

 
Approbations 634
—after Enrico Rava’s Sun Bay
 
 
 
Elongated plasm
            spatial              merge               daynoon
 
new miracle of warmth
                        touching
bare moment
of a vision’s
                        silent rejuvenation.  
 

 
 
Approbations 635
—after Nik Bärtsch's Ronin’s Modul 8_9
 
 
 
Significant focus
mirage
                        deluge              existential mirror
front-held
            hand-delivered lead
looking more               into version of neoteric spiral of
dialectical mutilations.  Of
deconstructed
quotidian
            verbal memory hiding hitherto
beneath wing of tongues explosive                  errors.  Swing
hourglass, odd image
meander sociable         cursive hand
best known shaper of death prior to death of extended exhalation. 
 
 

 
Approbations 639
—after McCoy Tyner’s She’s Leaving Home
 
 
 
Elasticized                   contour
                        return
                                    advance
regain shadow of realized
                                                environmental comfort.  Soon
 
as sun unzips charcoal fleece of night’s
                        fundamental garment
rise       motional          wing of signed calligraphic movement
 
            releasing her physiological presence
                                          into
version of a casing new to the moment now
enveloping verbs of her acclimated reaching. 
 
 

 
Approbations 640
—after Ahmad Jamal’s Ahmad’s Blues
 
 
 
                                                Of own
                                    one’s
materialized markings
            mayhem drawn multiple          deteriorations
mood, dispositional
                        outreach.  Ink on
 
fresh skin, flaked: sparkle moment gone (yesterday’s version
                                                                        decapitated)
                                                            thus
sadness of corporeal materializations
transcribes sightless venture of day’s
innocent memory of syncopated sadness.
 
 
Approbations 641
—after Dave Holland’s Conference of the Birds
 
 
 
                                                There:
                                                                        awaken her,
                        her
 
with the prolonged
                                    silver lines
 
tilting
            wrinkled, undisturbed
                                                            among lighted angles
of morning’s sacred canticle.  Be warm
 
against her stuttering ears:                                awaken her,
 
to visualize somatic rising of morning’s
softest breath, expanding.
 
Remind
                        your burgeoning call                            wafting, flaccid
 
disturb
not the option of apposite
                                    desire,
this method of momentary
 
            hankering
                                                            is to free from rest
body of movement’s
elongated state of fabricated
 
                        silence.
