PURCHASE THE DIGITAL COLLECTION (2013)
B. 6.9.1892 Peru, Indiana / D. 10.15.1964 Santa Monica, California
Saw the De Profundis manuscript on view at The Morgan Library (through January 13). On the elevator down from her Pre-prior-War Murray Hill co-op apartment I am still involved in the moment two or three minutes ago, when she paused at the extensible pegged wooden rack by her door to select—from a dense assemblage of similarly strapped, zippered, padded, and branded items—this particular fanny pack for her keys to jingle in.
Long sheets of blue prison paper closely covered in black words, one small word gleaming up from all over the sheets like mica on a blue road—you. You. You. Inscrutable machinery drips antique musk into the cleaning fluid fumes; in a velveteen hush, we descend. I execute another soft and faintly-willed collision with her rump.
