Here is a bit of found poetry:
energy of light
A path of chemical event
It proceeds without any catalyst
Mediated by four degrees from the original. Someone gave a talk, someone translated it, my friend selected particular phrases from the translation and wrote them down, calling them ‘Notes from a seminar’. I selected certain of his lines (about 1/3 of the whole length) and put them together here. So the words aren’t mine but the selection process is.
I considered elaborating based on the fragments I’d selected, but decided it would damage the purity of tone. I titled it and then removed the title, leaving the punctuation.
He gave me permission. Love the lines. Thanks.
