make stone love stone

It seemed to me that Robinson Jeffers was building that house for years and years. Sometimes I'd see rocks piled out there and it looked like he couldn't make up his mind which one to use and they'd be there for a long period of time and then finally they would find a place in these walls that were going up.

  1. C.G.Jung also built house of stones, you know... a similar way
    perhaps a similar desire disassembled
    by the assemblage of such great matter.
