Angus, on secretion;
'After the show, Butter Bebop (Transatlantic Creme Dreams) at Alison Jacques Gallery in London finished, and which I was able to visit only once, I felt a real sense of exclusion knowing I no longer had permission to be with those paintings. Secretion is the separation of one fluid from another and also a sense of conversion. I am in the launderette reading the word secreted over and over again. Tumbling around with its weepy associations is also the past participle of secret. Whatever exchange may have happened as I stood half-cut as I am now, delighted with those beaming works, finding rhythms which felt familiar, a formedness which (I flatter myself) I see in some of my better poems - whatever it was had begun to trickle in or out; the show is over, the paintings are secreted away and I have barely begun to understand anything.'
