reading a pad with writing by an unnamed man, middle-aged or older, bearded,
a painter, Italian. It's in English. Word, Phrase. Two words, maybe. A few words
on each line ..... 'barefoot' ..... something sad, something else said. Again ...'barefoot'.
It's a video image. His bearded face and half length, above an advertising hoarding
with red edge & yellow panel ...... 'no erectile tissue' ..... His hands out of sight behind
the hoarding, moving. He invites five women to write on a white page. There are
five # 4 sable brushes in a water-pot. Unasked, I write a page with one of the brushes,
mixing some colour with a lot of white. This is how I must write, as he had.
