                 December 1980 in Paris was a bad time
      to step before a Renault or a Citroen
when late in the month or the winter
you were feeling particularly
                      buoyant and the plane trees
had an attractive appearance
      & you were considering a diagram that's got
             giant spokes and guywires wheels and
turned pulleys that's attached to
Leonardo and his hazardous
design for a drive.. it's a formerly
             graceful vehicle longhand at various points
propped up as I recall with a man's image underneath..
Barthes was better than ten Frank Wrights.
