When the human mind is
put to the problem of pussy,
it is put through the test of being
completely enveloped by pussy.





*





I have never maintained visual indifference
in the presence of pussy. Between a shovel, a shoe,
a door and a pussy, I find my eye always falls
on pussy. Once the eye falls on pussy it falls away
from everything that is not pussy.





*




I like pussy
up real close
where all I can
see is the pussy.






*





A famous French painter
once painted a picture of pussy
and it was a very good likeness.
It was like the outside of the pussy.






*





Some pussy emphasizes semantic density
over romantic intensity, but it is still pussy.







*






Sometimes you see
a woman's head and not
her pussy and sometimes you
see her pussy and not her head.







*





The eye of man
follows the pussy
with pious gloom.







*





I find James Joyce pretentious,
but I find pussy really interesting.
It is interesting to think of James Joyce
as a normal man.







*





Pussy can heighten
the poet's sense of absurdity
but it can also heighten
the poet's sense of familiarity.







*





I never laugh
when I see pussy
because pussy is not funny
and what is funny is not pussy.







*




Pussy is sometimes realistic
in the tradition of Flaubert
and sometimes quite dreamlike
in the tradition of women.






*






As I approached the pussy I was pleased
to find there were no aspens surrounding it,
just the warm contrast of two shades of orange.
