Calligraphy


In the words of fire,
I am not in individual
nor can I be what I am
- will be - have been-
Defining what I is defeats it
it is calling into the wind,
summoning a dragon to
burn houses to the ground.
This is not what they are -
what the could become if we
did not call them by katakana
titles. Broken down
they remain linked in essence
being what they are built and broken.
I leave myself in these figures,
watching them drawn in precise strokes.
I can not individualize
until my calligraphy can be dragons.
In becoming another I remove them
from space and fall further
from individual. Speaking rightly -
in them I can finally be me;
perfection is attained in
imbibing others fully. Then
individuating from their bone structure
and am self defeating my own becoming
