the death of fred Clifton 11/10/84 age 49 i seemed to be drawn to the center of myself leaving the edges of me in the hands of my wife and i saw with the most amazing clarity so that i had not eyes but sight, and, rising and turning, through my skin, there was all around not the shapes of things but oh, at last, the things themselves.
