Picking up the yarn...

Homage to Yayoi Kusama:

      these dots we are made of

infinite net

work  it seems   to split open.

with tired eyes to look and look
read visible worlds
       and have nothing on 
but dots. 
         circles and zeros.
prepositions and infinitives
in fear, and beside fear

to create from that,

                     naked


Not-so-random lines from online:

YK "As an obsessional artist I fear everything I see. At one time, I dreaded 
everything I was making. The armchair thickly covered in phalluses was my 
psychosomatic work done when I had a fear of sexual vision."

---Yayoi Kusama, from an interview with Grady Turner for BOMB Magazine 66, Winter 1999.
