Letter to Humphrey Bogart,Already Far Away
Te windowsare allclosed. No door openswhen it rings. Isthis house empty?It’s February, it’sMarch, it’s April: I open thererigerator. No corpse in the house. DearHumphrey Bogartyour vision o theman, who doesn’tlaugh, lonely guestin a house which exists only as a acadein the middle o Beverly Hills. But the glass in the handdoesn’t tremble. It’s May, June, July.It’s August, September, October.No ootsteps in the gravel. Nocorpse in the house. And all the windowsclosed orever ater the singleshot.

Artifcial Light
 We have pictures whichmove,” and the meaningis not just something which isvery bright. Tere are, or example,light bulbs, which disappear inthe darkness, and there isthis pattern o car accidentsand “angst”. A boy liesstretched out naked on theground beneath a hugebrightness and “moves”his hand. Tis boy isme. Te meaning o such a scene is simple. As though in the memory  just this single “picture” was real. I “did” thatand later, when I was fnished just this “movement” remained.Seen too closely, the detailsdisappear and become “angst”.
