A4 Clipboard

I noticed my SYSMAX A4 Clipboard staring up at me from a horizontal storage area (the floor). It is a beautiful and sweetly incoherent thing, purchased from a United States outpost of the Korean stationery chain ArtBox. Down the right side of the clipboard, in right-justified sans serif:

Jeudi
There is only one
happiness in life,
to love and to be
loved.

LIVE THE LIFE YOU’VE IMAGINED

A4®

Mardi
The busier you are,
the more you need to take
time to do things right.

Jeudi
We need to record words
for our learning.

Vendredi
Have you given any thought
to your future? Let’s
do one thing at a time.

Samedi
Everyone is necessarily the
hero of his own life story.

SYSMAX
And that’s the end.

Thursday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday?

The sentence “We need to record words for our learning” makes me think of Bob Perelman’s poem “China.”
