Targetless Rock Throwing

Ken Babstock. “Industry” in Methodist Hatchet. Last line:

What is one voice but a resource?

A question answered by an earlier poet:

maybe even stones have discourse

Robert Kroetsch. The Sad Phoenician. Section M

but it was she who resisted; she, wronged by refusing;
life is what we make it they say; maybe even stones have
discourse, perhaps there is a music of the spheres
heard on quiet nights, far from water
and maybe the fireman only climbs to kiss the flame

One voice is indeed a way to source.

And so for day 1758
