494. Momentarily Non-Local

494. Momentarily Non-Local is a sort of Levertov meets Whitman meets the notion of multiple selves. Sam Hamill says I am a “man of a thousand faces” and at least that many selves. Again Cholula memories but this time palpably from Cascadia. Were I to edit this, I’d take out the word “like.”
