Perpetual Undulation

 

Let the place of the solitaires
Be a place of perpetual undulation.
Whether it be in mid-sea
On the dark, green water-wheel,
Or on the beaches,
There must be no cessation
Of motion, or of the noise of motion,
The renewal of noise
And manifold continuation;
And, most, of the motion of thought
And its restless iteration,
In the place of the solitaires,
Which is to be a place of perpetual undulation.

Wallace Stevens / The Place Of The Solitaires

 

Let the place of the solitaires be a place of perpetual undulation… Welcome to the .042nd edition of Prescriptions. Here is our review of the week in the arts.
