the second swan
Matisse sat in a boat and drew swans. He drew every detail of their forms just to carve them down into contour lines. That's what I want to do-- to get to the second swan. I sometimes overdose myself with myself hoping to eventually streamline. Too much just to get to just enough. Like Matisee, I want to turn excess into essence.

Swans look for soulmates. And once they mate, they mate for life. If one dies, the other just pines away until he dies, too--"No number of sightings of white swans can prove the theory that all swans are white. The sighting of just one black one may disprove it."
