Alexandre Cabanel “Fallen Angel” detail.
Hunting gazelles isn’t as easy as it looks on Animal Planet
Oriental Hotel and boardwalk, Manhattan Beach, Brooklyn, New York, 1903.
I don’t know where they come from.

(sometimes I can)
into my mind,
into my fingers,

they don’t often come when I need them.
When I need them most terribly,
