Page 1:


LAZY AND INDIFFERENT, shaking space easily from his wings, knowing his way, the heron passes over the church beneath the sky. White and distant, absorbed in itself, endlessly the sky covers and uncovers, moves and remains. A lake? Blot the shores of it out! A mountain? Oh, perfect­the sun gold on its slopes. Down that falls. Ferns then, or white feathers, for ever and ever­

Desiring truth, awaiting it, laboriously distilling a few words, for ever desiring­(a cry starts to the left, another to the right. Wheels strike divergently. Omnibuses conglomerate in conflict)­for ever desiring­(the clock asseverates with twelve distinct strokes that it is mid-day; light sheds gold scales; children swarm)­for ever desiring truth. Red is the dome; coins hang on the trees; smoke trails from the chimneys; bark, shout, cry “Iron for sale”­and truth?
