On the Occasion of Seeing Her Hand

May art prologue be

for friends self-addressed as we 

in our play's journey —

by each sun-self possessed 

by each other loved free

The Grey Hand

DF Morning 5.25.23

Lyrics to “Moon River”

Moon river, wider than a mile

I'm crossing you in style someday

Oh, dream maker

You heartbreaker

Wherever you're going I'm going your way

Two drifters off to see the world

There's such a lot of world to see

We're after the same rainbow's end

Waiting round the bend

My huckleberry friend

Moon river and me

Lyrics by Johnny Mercer
Music by Henry Mancini
Film Theme Song for "Breakfast at Tiffany's"

Orphic Interlude #1


Attend the missing referent:

The new way to spell ethics is M-O-D-A-L!

How does one trill?

Illuminate very well
Very flatten.

Pendulous prompting
Prompted titration
Titration prompt begets
Even titration of vision.

The new way to spell leaf is T-W-I-S-T!

How does one enunciate?

Sustain flattened crisp
Framed deceit.

Padding forms circle
Sugar pierced
Disclosure no prompting
Never touching.

The new way to spell condom is S-Y-M-B-O-L-I-C!

How does one arpeggiate?

Crumble feature
Contact loss timbre.

Undone so actional
Coordinates not withheld
Vehicular imperative
Uncongeal musically.

The new way to spell style is I-N-S-T-R-U-M-E-N-T-A-L!

How does one ascend?

Immersion submersion
Pickled submersion sustains.

Incensed privacy upturned
Line through held up
Upturned cradled in service
Blue sphere foregone.

The new way to spell fictive is P-R-I-V-A-T-E!

How does one make clear?

Grain metaphor
not holding.

Caulked disjuncture
Never dwindle sever mirror
Munch unwanted
Reflexive munch.


Hauser & Wirth was founded in 1992 in Zurich by Iwan Wirth, Manuela Wirth and Ursula Hauser, who were joined in 2000 by Partner and President Marc Payot and CEO Ewan Venters in 2020. A family business with a global outlook, Hauser & Wirth has expanded over the past 30 years to include outposts in Hong Kong, London, New York, Southampton, Los Angeles, Somerset, Menorca, Monaco, Zurich, Gstaad, and St. Moritz. The gallery represents over 90 artists and estates who have been instrumental in shaping its identity over the past quarter century, and who are the inspiration for Hauser & Wirth’s diverse range of activities that engage with art, education, conservation, and sustainability.
