No Face: March 11, 2016

Rhoda at SE Halt -- Color reduction woodcut + solar plate
I do not know--your days and hours pass like the boughs of forest trees and the smooth green of forest rides to a hound running on the scent.  But there is no single scent, no single body for me to follow.  And I have no face. I am like the foam that races over the beach or the moonlight that falls arrowlike here on a tin can, here on a spike of the mailed sea holly, or a bone or a half-eaten boat.  I am whirled down caverns, and flap like paper against endless corridors, and must press my hand against the wall to draw myself back.
The Waves (94)
