Perspective Would Have Us enters dreams, films, foreign countries as so many fields of radiation with the power to mutate the forms of what we know or think we know. The underground currents of language move clusters of meaning in a dance not unlike the vibrations of quantum theory’s fields of energy. 

"Thoughts to blood must always
in possible distinction talk.

Subject to instance, substance
weight, possibly-force, always;

and where are said breath, flight,
always the earthbound element
claims love

In other words (pictorial)
the difference in two hands
as pressed in prayer

and two hands flared, inverse,

the smallest digits locking wings."
