If there is right, there is left. I thought I looked forward, but found I had been facing backward. Just one degree of a three hundred and sixty degree field of vision.
Gradually, subconsciously, I had chosen my view. Walking in the city, even while talking, I notice the tension in my shoulders. I shrug to loosen them, and slowly turn my neck. As for myself As for many things. . . .
To exist with clarity Without presumption. I wonder why things are this difficult. Those things, every time, I notice them. Those contradictions, my responding reactions. If I could give them form.
