Jasper Johns - Corpse and Mirror II (oil on linen) 1974-75

"who are we at the whim of (whom?) whom hums the tune"
-from red doc>, by Anne Carson

"the moon tunes the tides"
-from a poetry reading at Current Gallery

the sun tunes the flowers
the woman tunes the guitar
the mechanic tunes the car
the stove tunes the omelette
the fleshlight tunes the cock
the season tunes the leaves (and the colds)
the paper-maker tunes the pulp
the combination tunes the lock
the light tunes the eyes
the sugar tunes the blood
the core tunes the crust
the tuna tunes the sandwich

"Night's bones are still forming"
from red doc>, by Anne Carson
