2. The Oulipo in New York During an indeterminate, unbroken time, without even a hint of what might be, we saw nothing but the wry, jaded surface of routine. There then emerged the notion, the invention of this possibility - but the word "emerged" must, we know, be corrected, For to create possibility there must be will, the supreme will of a master, starkly, joyfully gravid And enamored of a project such as: make a garden here, where one beholds only well-proven cement. And what you now saw was born from a void through just such workings of a solitary woman's will.
