James McCrary - Reading Notes


from Part II of West of Mass Jim McCrary

It's all in the fingers now

trees grow on computers

from the mind

and eventually become "strange"

this isn't just the way it is

it is the way it is


going out as big

as it can get

and that becomes

the same size

it always was.

So where do things lie

across the field of shape

and size does it mean nothing

now that we can find it all

or do we just

keep looking

Smaller or larger which was it

where did this begin

the word caught up in it

and if that goes on long enough

will it block out the white

or will the black just block out
