The Session

began with paper arguments, wipe-away lines crossed at the cardinal x of the low table, the
surface the oily luster that absorbed the cotton-colored catalog light,

a hot-point revelation, chunks of mortality,

is this for the spectator, at the price of admission,

though also the sense that none cares, fine, but there is
this frieze,

on the rear walls and held the treble of the small insight,

the cloud's shadows moved over the center of the audience (I thought)
without relation.
