the rookery


for a brief time the appearance of rookery3.jpg which is
nonetheless inadequate to bring the social interactions,
as if they were frozen in time, of a group of great blues,
into focus behind the big box store held at bay by the
declaration of humans that for the moment this place is
off-limits. barriers and litigations continue as we hold
in despair onto the moment stasis of what might be thought
of as a good conclusion. we think at best two decades
ahead on a practical level, surrounded by death and
entropy - even now, there are more dead than alive among
us. every image is an ephemeral anointing, every gesture
has already disappeared, every sound and sight feels the
sadness of noise and the whispers of orders on the wind.
every philosophy, book and paper and talk, is a proffering,
an image, metaphor and metonymy, dialog, whisper in the
dark as if it were the bright light of day. the day brings
nothing to the event, the night, in its honesty, less. we
want to keep it that way. we want to nest, we want to make
a home.
