           EYELIGHT - THE ONE POEM OF ALL POEMS – reduced Version A.

There was a lot of darkness — ------------------------------
Dark darkness, and some light.
Light – yes - light: light and dark...
Less light than dark, but more dark than —---------------
But I loved the dark. Came colour then.

stately — the pit of my stomach gone black in the darkness that was eating it away for thinking of you, and Robin smiling sideways like a cat with canary feathers to account for, and Jenny tripping beside her so fast that she would get ahead and have to run back with small cries of ambition,
saying wistfully, ‘You must come to my house for late supper.’

I have forgotten much, in this land, this crystal land.

God help me, I went! For who will not betray a friend or, for that matter, himself for a whisky and soda, caviare and a warm fire — and that brings me to the ride that we took later. As Don Antonio said long ago, a calf — for the rest, the place was as full of the wrong thing as you would care to spend your inheritance on — well, I furnished my closet with phenomenal luck at the fair, what with shooting a row of chamber-pots and whirling a dozen wheels to the good, and everyone about me getting nothing for a thousand francs but a couple of velvet dogs, or dolls that looked as if they had been up all night. And what did I walk home with for less than five francs?

Then they found me, and the machines. These proliferate:
everywhere there is a clicking of meanings. God is knitting.

I cogitated & played with wax
until ergo: and I walked, imagining things.
Oft-times sat I then in caves
convinced by shadows: or I turned toward the greater sun:

I sigh, I wander from room to room, and rustle in
my own unknowing. Finally I settle back,

this is what we deciphered in the cave light:

About three in the morning, Nora knocked at the little glass door of the concierge’s loge, asking if the doctor was in. In the anger of broken sleep the concierge directed her to climb six flights, where at the top of the house, to the left, she would find him.
Nora took the stairs slowly. She had not known that the doctor was so poor. Groping her way she rapped, fumbling for the knob. Misery alone would have brought her, though she knew the late hours indulged in by her friend. Hearing his “come in” she opened the door and for one second hesitated, so incredible was the disorder that met her eyes. The room was so small that it was just possible to walk sideways up to the bed; it was as if being condemned to the grave the doctor had decided to occupy it with the utmost abandon.
A pile of medical books, and volumes of a miscellaneous order, reached almost to the ceiling, water-stained and covered with dust. Just above them was a very small barred window, the only ventilation. On a maple dresser, certainly not of European make, lay a rusty pair of forceps, a broken scalpel, half a dozen odd instruments that she could not place, a catheter, some twenty perfume bottles, almost empty, pomades, creams, rouges, powder boxes and

An enormous luminosity grew between her eyes and we were dumfounded:
forgetting what was origin, orange, apple, or where the serpent
had parked the sedan beside the spreading sneer of the evening’s trees
who were lush and unapproachable in the growing and licentious gloom

Perhaps such eyes, as, the stark skull might hope
might en Be its own, suppose it lived. It is the word,
the phrase, the sudden flame of the clause, is my starting forth:
no idea or desire have I of completing any linear completeness,
demonstration, exegesis, proof, or subtle analogue. The beach – shells and wave song. To have eyes.

It is a writhing living thing, a mass mountain impossible to be

Once I was 'chosen' only to fail. I was, indeed, perfectly failed.

Days we raved to It on Setebos: days and times we seemed to know:
but the isle echoed with false trails, non-sequits: and nothing

second Self?” “He hath made things worthier than himself.”

stamping out life
The doctor was embarrassed by Nora’s rigid silence; he went on. “I was leaning forward on my cane as we went down under the trees, holding it with both hands, and the black wagon I was in was being followed by a black wagon, and that by another, and the wheels were turning, and I began saying to myself: 'The trees are better, and grass is better, and animals are all right and the birds in the air are fine. And everything we do is decent when the mind begins to forget — the design of life; and good when we are forgotten — the design of death. I began to mourn for my spirit, and the spirits of all people who cast a shadow a long way beyond what they are, and for the beasts that walk out of the darkness alone; I began to wail for all the little beasts in It has been authoritatively estimated that eyes have evolved no fewer than forty

this death excretion, this this - this queer screwed Quirk of life,
this twist of stuff: this instrumental Devil-God.

So alive and so silent beyond accusation or even time itself;

but I am not interested just now in the poem's meaning (meaning is problematic in any case) interested here in the look of the totality of his work as worked through and I then transform it - as things constantly do in life - in fact I went "berserk" with it almost in trance or a fever, a kind of "creative rage" perhaps: creating a new "poem" or text as in the following image-poem-text-enactment: an implication of an infinite and progressive or degressive process ... I got very angry with it:
-it is the details we require - progress was mentioned - but Buzz kept drinking -
we who also read the technical books and wonder about the blue one and the red one and
and the endless miles to fulfill our wire blood needs &
our quietly desperate hungers - our advancing annihilation and the wonder of tree trunks

there were at least
one thousand of you
in the empty teatro
whose stage
was bare but for that

that had been slain alive
to confront you
with its poking tongue,
for it was rude
and young -

death’s no problem:
Someone walks his way. Musing, musing, dark at night, (His wife long gone)
Death was edging closer.

Chess - Alice flew and flew,
But they got nowhere.
What’s that
bloody lizardo mechanico liberto doing
Unbecoming from your page set at 30 60 degrees
and u-u-up onto the book, curlfully,
and then onto the set square which
has got a circle which is really a fuckin’ellipse,
and its little hands grip the fausty book,
or the set square’s sides ‘till:
“Aren’t we great”, a tiny Crocodilus becomes
a fockin dragon — snorting King of the castle
on the top of Mount Dodecahedronicus —eh?!
You fockn’ Dutch genius. Fock !

.And then it turns, fuck me,
And dissolves back into beginning

Yet I do not wish to leave you, my scene, my stage, my hell, my house. For it was here that – surely you recall – the deep adumbrations, the violinocellos, the lights, the subtle shades, and all those who came: their signals – how they breathed and bowed and loved! How the rooms enfolded them like envelopes in the glazed and timbered cells, and the ecstatic, wriggling quietnesses. They beckon, they crook: but no – there have been too many meetings here: here, just here, was once The Great One – and that place was blood enriched, and over here a beautiful bulbous bubble grew. And the delicate quicknesses, the sharps, the special clashes and the type of night: how you took cigar as the voices rose to roar – even yes, even the terror, the things, the songs, the cadenced dooms, and the dusty settling that spills and spills: out out into the religious rustlings, the flashings, the folds, the dragons, the coils – the angels descending. Those reds! Those blues! ….

No, no: as I cast about, there are the tenors who strut about like croaking toads
in a symphony of frogs and bogs. And the dark times gone croak. And the times of newspapers.
The apple times, the pillow times, the erections – all all already known…

I suggest that every person open an interior trapdoor, that he negotiate a trip into the thickness of things, that he make an invasion of their characteristics, a revolution, a turning over process comparable to that accomplished by the plough or the spade, when suddenly

The struggle of shapes leaps into the scream that creates paint drips

Much have I travelled. But I turned off at Kopakopa into Huketai to examine a thistle-patch, or a magpie, a tui, or even a cow, and an abandoned tractor fossil.
You joined me and it was then I came upon us. Who were we, you eternally asked? They meantime were vanished into clumps and (quite probably) had merged with the stainless steel land, which as you well know, is as beautiful as a real advert, and gave off the tinkle sounds of melting snow. The microphones, who had been (generously I must say) ear lending,had booked in to rent a conclusion. Just then they bent further in. This circumstance made further calls on us (poor defeated souls) as great ungulphable gulphs of (in)comprehension burnt deep into

I, or was it you, are not now what you were - as if it were that
to make some final statement, you, had exited a jumbo jet, say
at three thousand feet or so, only to splatter your life
into implacable mud? That sort of thing. In short, some indifferent end.

But that would be absurd jeered the cheerers -
only kings and clowns are allowed madness, you are condemned to
sanity. We are strictly temporal beings. Nothing
there is you can fault us: we aren’t children. Ours is
the straight road - no drowning in ponds of blood for us. No
nightingales. No Tuis even. We even have doubts
about the body, how it excresses, or is that: expresses? What
by what oozing dissolve could justify
the power and ache of that great oak oat strength,
that we always discern in shoes, or ploughed earth, or Heidegger’s lusty
labourer: the way he spits into the cozy inferno of his evening’s fire:

That there thing, that is, the thing there -
The thing that was there,
Where I saw it, dark -
A coagule of wet,
Together, clinging things:
Like dead, and loving things -
Dead things caught in a hopeless,
But restless, and never ending
Parody of what looked –
In so far as you, could see:
Or could not see,
Were, as I began, wet, limp,
But together things, rapid, and, they, or it:
Rolled in the wind

I, too, have supped. I too have sat in the silent gardens whose shadow precedes sight. And you, Great Short One, you who are ugly, stride away with enormous boots. And because you are infinitely inside: you blaze, you blaze: and Blindest Man is touched in eternal joy.

Our telephone used to be
A terrible old doom black thing –
Shrill as a drill:

It announced, my grandmother’s death.

But I could talk of treaties, handshakes, agreements, thumbprints;
and ink-smudged documents. Great papers, great recordings:
and joyous embellishments. But the wrongs stream away beyond
any local landings. Everywhere great writings: useless
yet perhaps fruitfully sad. And only the Joker
could cackle, right ironically, that pen quills, deadly sharp –
perhaps poisoned – could spell with a death the old sooth:
“The Pen is Mightier than the Sword!”

Wolf-men dive thru yellow skies…

But life is more than doublings: there are true ways and straight as just now the
agents explode in some Chirician street where the sense as of the Unreal
hovers so perpetually that nightmares seem normal. In Robbe-Grillet’s
Jealousy for example, or his Labyrinth, the fabled detail endlessly
redefines the aching sense of possibility. The very withholding of plot
or human intercession is indeed the terrible power of everything about to
happen. And think of Jason in The Sound & Fury by Faulkner.
Reading the latter there is the feeling so palpably transmitted of a
thumping petrol migraine, and of minds and worlds corrupted, indeed
evil, except perhaps for Caddy and Benji (who’se the Idiot) and Dilsey

cap it all the tiny preacher. But this isn’t something on paper.

She will be chirping in bird shriek:
“I’ve found a burning brightly. I’ve found a brightly burning tiger, symmetrical striding across the red land, thru the blue forest toward a golden dread hand, with immense powers of analysis.”

You will get up, pull up your trousers, and walk into tomorrow like you were the day itself.

Calculating time by time and dividing by time
these things of lament fall upon us as dark green quilts on aged men
where women wail. Forever fingers of the living root down to grip.

To disappear into the sands. As in Scott of Lammermoor .
'The quicksanded cities.' as I wrote, using the image of man and horse
plunging. To disappear. And the vents of fury among the loud mountains:
Why have we not passaged here?

We have something to teach, to say. We could treat time
like Cantor's Alephs, and find that time by time yields
time only, and time times time is Aleph time.
'We are lost in gelid time. We are the fools of time. Time was.'
What to teach? They wait. The shadows grow. Man's, in history.
Of Emerson, though, we have little. As said. What sounds?
What do you mean? Is it known? Know thou? Sit by the fire.
At the camp fire – much mad truth. Old woes.

Things keep living in this old chaos, under the sun, of the.
How can we evaluate? Ejaculate, expatiate: things leap.
The undulant ambiguations, you know
them, they descend. How much redundancy adds to the immensity
of rock giants? Who sang? Who yes-noed?

“Who”, they ask, “is the what of that why

A thousand bodies jerk in a simultaneous electric death.
The immense precision of the vanished hands.

This is the millionth law of the year of The Beetle.

Something jerks out there in the swamp.”

Andy Warhol beats like a mutation on
a bent and yellow spattered Campbell Soup can
that is hyperbolic in a dream of concrete.

And it is the time of The Rat as fat as a god

And it is time for The Boy –

The mirror, my favourite quirk, could not be found, having shrunk to three sixteenths of a quark. We sounded the trumpets, The green dog was frantic. But we placeth not limitation on the beautiful integrals resounding in the golden ear – each one of us enraging with some theory of a toilet paper factory. (21, 859).We awoke in a field of bones. But there was nothing to learn, so, while rolling our rollies, we spat on the fat man, only to learn that infinity had turned inside out like a negative singlet, everything nothinging itself, like a filigree error – a tiny fineness so fine you couldn't find it.

The fog of forgetting begins to menace those still standing in the wicked wind facing the God-Devil. Nothing can be discovered: so Petrus veered away at this point turning to look back only when the shooting had stopped and the 200 million had been quietly put down. Then a wonderful silence settled into the dust of which we were particles. Rumours circulated. One was how time was leaking. Crystals formed.
