Lessons in Drawing
0. Distribution
You slowly begin to consider your relative positions.
The meaning of the alert in your email inbox begins to change.
In fragments, Life begins to replace Art in your discussions, just as you begin to bring what you've learned through Art into your life: all the melodramas, wishes, and conflicts. You learn each others' addresses, voices, and the space between you, in distance, in age, and in philosophy, becomes activated.
1. Gesture
We go back to basics. Let go of what you think it looks like. There, a skinny woman with long red hair walking, the wrong direction, in the waiting lounge. Your misconceptions only confuse your hand. Here: accept her as she is, standing before you, living Galatea. Your imagination's simplifying hand never put those spots on her cheek, that colour in her eyes. You were not able to sculpt her full shape and size from the 2-D, thin-obsessed world. So start over, with the essence of her seeping into your knowledge.
You must learn ho

Dead Sky
defying movement, motion, creation
frost without the fall
this ordered sky, a mockery of patience
a filter to fill
all colour, all sense fled
oh the sky is dead
a perfect amber for us
for those who wait out in the stars
edgeless crystal
unbroken yet insubstant
pallid, a shell
eleven will tell
a mess of demons caught within
rejected from the sky
all colour, all sense fled
oh the sky is dead
inert, compressed
sunk halfway down
a buoyancy that's not much help
shadowless, ungrounded
purporting to purge
leaching colour, confined
purposelessness boring into our minds
a light all good offices seek to emulate
we scream to shatter
that solid state
a siren, encased
a siren, emergent
from this glass our cage
let ye tourists know our rage
let it snow, or else bleed
to counteract this uncanny sterility
leached of all meaning
emptied of wisdom's seed
the detestable light on wet porcelain
all colour, all sense fled
oh the sky is dead

Hotel Rules
The lobby and front entrance are strictly out of bounds.
In the car park, if you ask yourself any of these questions – how you're going to get out of a spot, whether you're allowed to park there, if the monster truck beside you will crush your car when it leaves, if you'll crush the motor scooter in the next stall, whether your car will roll onto a different level, if you'll be able to find your car again, etc. – you're behaving normally and you will almost certainly find your car in the same state and location that you left it in.
Use the service staircase and corridor to avoid surprises. The more lush and carpeted a staircase is, the more dangerous it is.
If you see anyone, do not go with them. Continue straight up to your room. It doesn't matter whether they're a pretty cleaning lady or a bizarre-looking alien. Do not step onto the official floor (carpeted, a regulation 16.7cm above the concrete service landing). Do not follow them. If you hear music, do your best.

After You
warm and certain
you have raised in me
for sharing
those gifts of grace
and incredulous faith
in life
I thank you
for aggressively daring
to laugh by yourself
and become birds of paradise
simply through joy
and breath vibrations of beauty
defying casual cruelty
with only yourself

Black Ink
Deep in the throaty thickets
Of hair like thorns I sing
And skin of wet porcelain
Illuminated by birdsong
I cry eerie
With the roc's child
Or the Martian dawn
As the far-off stars of a caveman's
Disco ball
Scatter before the blast
Of human voice
Driven by black ink in the core
