- Every word weighs.

Here is heard there.(Zukofsky, A 12)

Zukofsky on learning I

If it helps, diffract crystals and tracers.
Rabbi S said:
- You can learn from everything.
What man has made
Has also something to teach us.
His chassid jumped:
- Does a train?
- Yes, in a second
One may miss everything.

(Zukofsky, A 12)

Zukofsky on materiality and mechanics

Wednesday, June 11th, 2008

The clock and the corn-mill
(The water-mill, that is,)
The clock, the idea of applying automatic device
(Moved by springs) to production.
The mill the essential organism of a machine:
The mechanical driving power; the transmitting
mechanism; the working machine,
Which deals with the material. Each
With an existence independent of the others.
The mathematicians, so far as they occupied themselves
With practical mechanics and its theoretical side,
Started form the simple corn-grinding water-mill.

(Louis Zukofsky, A acht)

Zukofsky on action

Tuesday, June 3rd, 2008

No thought exists
Completly abstracted from action,
Without the solids of bodies
There is no geometry,
Who acknowledge space – moving
Know as many dimensions
as they have muscles

(Louis Zukofsky, A 12)
