Looking Walking Being

Written by: Denise Levertov | Biography
 | Quotes (35) |
 "The World is not something to
look at, it is something to be in.
" Mark Rudman I look and look.
Looking's a way of being: one becomes, sometimes, a pair of eyes walking.
Walking wherever looking takes one.
The eyes dig and burrow into the world.
They touch fanfare, howl, madrigal, clamor.
World and the past of it, not only visible present, solid and shadow that looks at one looking.
And language? Rhythms of echo and interruption? That's a way of breathing.
breathing to sustain looking, walking and looking, through the world, in it.
