Language does not leave fossils, at least not until it has become written. Richard Brautigan
Trout Fishing In America,'Prelude to the Mayonnaise Chapter'.
Uneasily the leaves fall at this season, forgetting what to do or where to go; the red amnesiacs of autumn drifting thru the graveyard forest. What they have forgotten they have forgotten: what they meant to do instead of fall is not in earth or time recoverable the fossils of intention, the shapes of rot.
