How Shall We Change Language to Geography



Luke Daly
Old & new world mentors
Peeling in inside artistic institutions.

Be suspicious using words-
How shall we point to air around us.

Thirty black/white versions.
Photocopied drawing of mid-

Western plains in winter using
Streetlights as perspective.

Time of day they'd all turn
On and month & phase of

Moon. "Slung up on an Im-
Permanent construction."

Other walls with plastic
Inch-thick brush & glue for papering

Things-then taken
Down when unintellig-

Ible
. Streets get
Opened up again the weather's

Gotten warm. Used as material
It isn't that it's charged with

Meaning
but has lived and has the
Town inside as parts of it.
