A Human Movement
papa pastures, green green grasses says yesses,
if the soil is below the grass, and the soil is brown and anyone who ever thinks about soil thinks of it in some version of brown, even that kind of memory black and white brown, greyscale brown,
yellow crane, white snow. 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10
I, sometimes, do really have to hand it to "ten," I mean I could never think of ten as anything but ten. Now seven, I don't need seven. It could be 41 for all I am concerned. But ten's got the idea, it's close enough to 8 and 12 that who really cares about 15 or 5. I don't see anyone getting upset with 10.
And yet, on this side of the ocean, not this side, but that side, there exists some kind of paranoia towards that which grants more then less, which is a misunderstanding that there is never less than more.
The more is, that swelling agent, the growing moon (and to those in the know, and by knowledge I mean grace, all people when no people are implied.) the less is the receding current, the shrinking daylight.
But still, people gotta get riled up over one or the other. Luckily they never attack 10. Measurement is freedom. It's a tough step to take, to give in to the power of observation. But if you want to be free it requires the giving and the taking. The moon.
I can move one arm, and then another. You don't see me getting upset on my arms.
Rethinking enlightened philanthropy:
Try to understand the way in which the philanthropic activities in late 19th century Looking at lives/work of I. N. Phelps Stokes, Jacob Schiff, Paul Cravath, Florence Kelley --> Nicholas Kelley, and the Survey Associates. Maybe even think about James Lenox and his ideas of who could use his library.
Could even possibly think about working on the idea of "labor" less as a tool for separating class and more as an American religion, or divine mind from Puritan yeoman to industrial time clocks.
Change in idea of self from "the redemption of the individual lay within the social world" pre-1860 to "the redemption of the social world lay with the individual" into the 20th cent.

x in different sizes
powdered wig, acrylic oil paint, rusty spray paint bottle can
...all three things at once. So there.
and then wooden glossy boat, garden gloves with rubbery grips, metal plastic mesh on a boombox speaker... all three things at once.
Made in America, a German import's expense, Made in Japan. Things are made in one location and then increase or decrease value as transport manifests out of desire and also ignorance.
Ever found an old bottle in the woods? There is no way to date it. It could be from 1973 or 1989 or 1961. The bottle has been there since it was left there.
A tree to sit under, secondary growth only 110 years old, trees growing close to one another and twist. Three at once.
No more trees. Now cloth.
Velvet on a stuffed bunny's nose, cordoroy brown suit jacket new, thick nylon strap on a luggage case canoe strap.
No more cloth than that, now. What's next to be over?
Ways to paint the sun!
A circle, perfect yellow. A stream canal light pink cloud topping, and as though it is not even there, darkness because the sun never goes away.
No more sun.
What else is there that can come in different ways, in such a way that they can just be ignored, finally, beautifully ignored so that they do not surprise or arrive as they do in the various ways that they do?
Textures, please be over with. Colors of brick, done. Ways to arrange windows on a structure no more. Leave us with none of that.
The worst of which twists, communication. Pig. Greasy fat tar pit energy source like time early or late. Oh time too, no more! Late, early, just now, next or never. All there, so there. No more time too. Don't need you.
What's left? Please, asking, requiring, unnesesary, spelling incorrectly, spelling identically, what it sounds like, what it doesn't sound like, all of you... go away.
Piss smell, fresh water, clean glass, rotten lettuce water, bacteria, done with you too. Variations on water no more, how about it? Deal, no deal. Leave me be.
fresh out of fluid (this one's about society and how it remembers heros)
the heroes sometimes stand, and sometimes sit
but always keep an eye on the foreigner, who in this instance is a body and a vital force described as, and then, remembered fortunately as each hard wood barn built
forget the teenage opportunity to make families once and for all, adulthood set in with the tissue you project into, and then from out of nowhere, of course neglecting the ability of the average pronounciated comma, collection as if and with all, says;
"use your body like a fountain, make your face a statue to commemorate someone dead and better than you. Go get killed for today you can be remembered."
