*ORIGIN*

Region is origin. Document
is living. Stone is concrete.
Basement is raised. Some
thing under the basket. Some
thing under water. He breathes
too easily. Her face doesn't
remember this.

Judith Roitman*



Black dream
you come when sleep comes,
sweet god, truly dreadful agony
*
Sappho (trans. Stanley Lombardo) *
