“The minority groups in present-day industrial society who shout for freedom and human dignity are really clumsily asking that they be given a sense of primary heroism of which they have been cheated historically.” Ernest Becker


Eat broken dreams
And water their tiresome sit-ups swimming
Go to town to do schoolwork arend go to town

For umbrellas of Scotch for 5 p.m. errands
At the state liquor store tiresome sit-ups
Swimming takes me to town for pushups

All right time and hunger and swimming pools
Which I get home and hunger and water
At the tiresome details to what ten towns

Run errands do pushups and swim
Lean and buff water $5 a fifth at the nearby
Municipal swimming unmoored like

A middle-aged man like me
Like jazz lots of Scotch too town
There are when I do arrange myself

To myself it was heart-breaking that pool which
I took with supper eating broken dreamers, dearest Jane

“Hi, Joanna”


Hi, Joanna. How have you been?
I’m well. You look well — I’m
Happy to hear you use that word.
Good. Good. Well, anyway, I’m

Concerned about your voice.
No, specifically the way you recite.
It’s … troubling. You appear snakelike
And arrested, harmless. That’s not the way.

It’s not. I wouldn’t say “short of breath”
Exactly. Let’s call it, Forked-god. Please,
Calm down. I’m going to ask you
A couple of questions about your sexual history. Is that OK?

You switch back and forth between — please,
Correct me if I’m wrong — between
Subject and solitude. That’s to say:
Radical loneliness and decimation. Correct?

Masturbation may be part of it, but I’m speaking
Broadly about a timeline of sexual partners:
Moon-god, Ocean-sent, Stoic-antler. Relevant?
Of course. Its right here on your chart, Joanna:

“Five-three, phenotypically retroussé nose,
Tumescent pout, cosmetically rebellious.”

So, why this affected staccato when you read?

An essay from Amiri Baraka’s “Bushwacked!”


He wasn’t a perfect man, but he was radical, prescient and sage. The fire that burnt in his belly for decades, roars to this day in millions of Americans. We’ve just got to believe we’re not fighting alone and stand up together — everyday.


Please share this with your favorite radical activist.

“What can you reply, in general, to human questions?” Michele Houellebecq
make more outside 
of a sense 
offer this is OK 

never god's creation 
because if it's not tons 
about art you believing about 

they once what learning 
how easy your art $10
in place of people 

you have to make an 
art the strangers strange
how tough how white and hopeful

hope you have that made 
contact informal gallery system
how to other will eventuring 

how how much they have how
finds however for contact how
to stay international and how easy if 

you don't show much they have to do worst 
$100,000,000,000 art out 
your art scene white white white

and make on and on how so it 
the artist as and hope and you 
in business prospecting ships 

by responding works and get a few bucks 
for art does not thou — that's to make a doe
listen and wonder and look how you go

plenty of money
in someone’s while your art is never how 

making a list is relational likes 
with you painting where 
who doctors all overlook at making 

but that and of your art business 
with you have to selling how about 
how little about galleries of know and maybe show 

to talk about qualified girlfriends now and all over you're met 
going a listen wonder and once you're will even 
if the academic reality really has a listen the stuff 

it's a five-eared elephant you have about you 
of people to pay a fever paying people 

favorite color art scene white an’ all 
the galleries of all overlook how much the two 
dollars I suppose look at lease it 

white and generative an’ asking as to make an 
art business what is love with will ultimately 
respond — perhaps that doe again
