A flapper with a broken time machine. Kicked too high during a Charleston competition and landed in a modern newsroom.

I wrote a new thing.

I imagine the inner life of the strollered boy on the train.
His eyes are not quite focused along the lines of normal development
as he throws his arms out like a preacher:
The word! The word!

He comes upon the word like I once stumbled upon a host’s pet turtle
after weeks of unknowing cohabitation.
The word is simultaneously hibernating and shitting in the middle of the hallway.

And yet, the boy creates the word—
with each gesture of his sermon he is discovering a self
that feels very different from his old self, one pump of the heart ago.

He thinks this is normal,
turns his tense fingers towards the ceiling of the car
and says “come”
let us glory in the violence of all life’s little membranes

This is brilliant. Also, we do recommend the fish slivers.

{RO/LU has the photos of Cy Twombly’s palazzo from that 1966 Vogue feature, and hey ho, he had a Richter. How’d that happen?
Richter had shown Frau Marlow (1964) in his earliest exhibitions: at Galerie Schmela in Dusseldorf and the Capital Realism group show at Rene Block in Berlin. Twombly had been in a 2-person show with Rauschenberg in Dusseldorf in 1960, and the Venice Biennale in 1964, and so on. But I guess I wonder how Twombly came to own a painting by the just-emerging Richter.
Frau Marlow wasn’t seen in public for 35 years, until 1991.
