Cy Twombly


chance discovery this afternoon to these references in poems:

from Clark Coolidge’s At Egypt

When I heard the blown owl
like the Cy Twombly scrubbing that pile of penises?


from Rachel Blau DuPlessis’s Drafts 1-38, Toll

Perhaps translucence is a quality of erasure.
The thing anyway looks like a Cy Twombly
strokes trailing each other and dibs, nibs,
flicks of the wrist and a dreamy evisceration of pencil.

(Draft 17: Unnamed)
