the piano player in Hollywood, 1946


This kid's going nowhere

sure, he's got talent

his sense of Beauty is filled with godliness

but his fascination with boobs unseemly

intense curiosity about people means

he will most likely be a photographer not a doctor

a shame not to be a pianist.

GONE



everyone in my life is gone

memory startlingly vivid

did they ever exist?



memory is only one of many parallel universes



the tree did fall in the forest

I was there



they are gone

the orphan is alone in the forest

I see the trees

hear nothing



faces like rivers

"There have always been in me, two people at least, one person desperate and bewildered, who felt he was drowning and another who would leap into a scene, as upon a stage, conceal his true emotions because they were weaknesses, helplessness, despair, and present to the world only a smile, an eagerness, curiosity, enthusiasm, interest."
