THEN I LEARNED (0-38 YEARS OLD) #To breathe#to walk without hands past the cupboard#listen to where the wild things are#cut up cardboard books#listen to how a letter sounds#get a little sister out of the puppet theatre#look at how paint sings#ride past the customs without feather headdress#write between lines in the bus#get to know mechtild and her mother who makes butter her granny honey and bread#go from the mountain to the valley#go into caves stalactites#spell bartók’s name in paper notes#nearly die then see a boy draw elephants knights hearts in the snow express next to each other very close on our knees#a poem about snow a dazzling white ribbon round the world#feeling lonely#being alone#go from hell to heaven through the forest#being kissed in the rain#feeling a blanket of hands#exams with a blue headscarf and golden eye shadow study smoking cigars#lie naked in the grass get food from five elements#live next to nobody who moves furniture writes on the floor#dance in the beetle club at four in the morning eat chips#use detergent without phosphates@read a watch with falling numbers#cut off curls#being a lighthouse#on a white carpet live in wounds#by burning fever become rozalie#walking down a dirt track#losing mothermothers to death#shoot a hellish film#visit a sacred mountain#meet a heart cross the atlantic pond#dream of mary with a hardon and christ child at her breast#see alley cats just born tucking into dead rats#the new york times snow under#return home in a mill
