Larry Eigner: “Wholes”


For a while a year is a long time
as things increase in their number
    and walls break
familiarity comes

familiarity of life, which sinks
to a level of sorts,     space
                (empty except for
                the rabbit-hat of things

Before crumbling, the walls streak
with some tangent of minutes

and life takes on a size

Larry Eigner, 1977
