Sketch from the Transitive Valley
By Bill Yake
“…scientific thought consists in
closely as may be the actual and entangled lines
of force as they pulse through things.”
I notice man sees horse grazes grass
Wind blows seeding grass sends hay scent wafts with air through valley.
Valley funnels day breeze upstream points east breathes hay-scent air lifts
Chill makes droplet holds pollen seeds droplet grows chill.
Drop pulls earth pulls drop drops itself.
Drops join one another wet soil grows grass blooms itself.
Seeds seed grass greens valley holds me/man/horse/soil grass swells all.
All swallows one drinks pollen discolors eyelid blinks itself.
