|This is a story about a nearly 100-year-old book, bound in red leather, which has spent the last quarter century secreted away in a bank vault in Switzerland. The book is big and heavy and its spine is etched with gold letters that say “Liber Novus,” which is Latin for “New Book.” Its pages are made from thick cream-colored parchment and filled with paintings of otherworldly creatures and handwritten dialogues with gods and devils. If you didn’t know the book’s vintage, you might confuse it for a lost medieval tome.|

|on a fisherman's shack in amagansett, ny ,|
there was a small sign that said ' guests '
the shack is now gone . . . replaced by a fancy
$2.000.000 summer mansion
which stands along with hundred's others like it. . .
all have sprouted at record speed
in the sand dunes of amagansett village
all facing the atlantic ocean.
what remains of the shack is this painted grey sign
on a narrow piece of wood . . . i had the chance to be
on site the day before the shack was destroyed. . .
i kept it with me so something of the fisherman's
house would be remembered.
