Wikipedia Poem, No. 911

secret
memory
can be physical
classic
memory
can connect
the couple-weeks-long process of
you in the bay
area

meditation on forms
ghost screens all
day — rather
ink
doesn’t
take

past
projects mine
where
ink doesn’t
work

and dedication forms a minimalist proust in fact
memory pieces
together
xeroxes
in secret

zombies
translate
a handwritten version
of industrial source-work
drawings
each into
fact

current shows
ask for a secretion
graphite on paper

With weapons
Without weapons
principled firmness—body first
the thing the master has not said
force, reaction, opponent—hand, elbow, kicks, escape and levering

attack and defense sculpted against wrestling—with drastic violence
choking from behind—knife and sword
against students
armed opponents,
long, short, trains the body first, then the mind.
