11-2.5; 11-1.8

I saw a book called

Seeing is Forgetting the Name of the Thing One Sees

It’s about the artist Robert Irwin

I know little of him


he did or does installation work

Would he be inspired by her?

Would he see her

and be driven

to place

a series of tur-

quoise and white

fluorescent lights

twenty of them

twenty two of them

in a row

on the wall

side by side 

would he have a conver-

sation with her 

about the rains

and return

to his notebook

and scribble 

the first eleven should be two point five inches


the second eleven should be one point eight inches


I think he would

for her
