Diet

The inimitable power of decay—say of the decayed particles whose eating as meat fills our organism, according to some, with harm—it clings also to cities.
New York Palm Springs Paris London Calcutta—
Old parts or new, their daily dissolution charms.
—five homes, I’d be happy. I would be a happy woman.
It’s like a reassuring friction in the head—an ever-wakeful smoothing palm of sensory intake as to the facts about entropy—
So that leaves—what?—only four and a half to go.
it is reality, reassuringly there. Every bit of it going downhill.
But who am I kidding? Like Paris wouldn’t be enough.
