A GAP IN REALITY ...


[B]efore the productive work

of the imagination can begin

we must be outside the familiar.



Africano's subtle gesture

"defamiliarized" in a moment.

In an instant. Pop! He created a gap

in which the imagination could do its work.

The scene deployed itself differently,

offering itself openly to the imagination.
