Abstract

3.20 Angle of shadow of the tree’s trunk slanting diagonally across sunlit plane of east-facing picket fence, web of bare branches in relation to thin blue sky behind it. Bare-chested young man taking black and white photos of man in blue shirt standing in 4th floor window, bedroom wall through which techno beat continues. The shorthaired girl in red jacket thinking color isn’t only emotional, woman in the chartreuse shirt under brown sweater noting the curve of grasslike green lines which come from Fra Angelico. Man in maroon turtleneck recalling the French took Lebanon and Syria after fall of the Ottoman Empire, the English sticking the Scotsman’s head on spike. Parallel lines of small swells moving in across the horizontal grey plane, the still sunlit slant of the ridge in the left corner. Common Knowledge 10:2 Copyright 2004 by Duke University Press 3.21 Black wrought-iron gate on door in a white wall to the left of a dull grey concrete plane, two rows of six black-framed windows in the brick wall opposite it. Man in green shirt waking from dream of blond woman in blue car stopping to ask why he didn’t call, ceramicist asking why he never
