Hypnotize (Radical Abstraction)

Wikipedia Poem, No. 847

precious

above through the 
    poem a little bit 
slicing 
ephemera  — document the wiki-stuff 
and eventualize back 
    at the 
         stanzas 

in some consistent stanzas in 
  some 
context backs movement 
blooming

the 
         movement jars current 
          even 
as 
    that movement 
      that movement 
   the jarring movement
         the jars of current 
          the poem above a little black slice 
of the stanzas in some 
contextualizing 
bloom of ephemera

      the derivative movement 
slices back 
   at the 
    radical abstractions

Wikipedia Poem, No. 652

“And look! Memnon has been stolen away and is at the edge of the painting.” Philostratus the Elder

i know what precisely     to say
do i say     a few years back
what's      right and how much of love 
is high cheek bones and how many 
high cheek bones gatherd here        how low
the creek groans      bones and how much left
i felt          the thin cracks in what's right 
and how does algae grow so deeply phonetic
down my chest beauty     when ever 
where ever     i'm not looking at my phone 
am i begging myself    to stay    say a few years 
back    what precisely do i mean or am           
i asking me or am i asking me or am i asking           
my phone when ever i'm right behind myself that's 
how love is high       cheek bones and glass skin 
and how much of love       is deeply photosynthetic 
am i asking          my phone which i am not looking at 
first that master's eyes surrounded by bones and           
how much of love       is a long stemmed wine glass 
there are my high cheek bones love
and how much of love is thin cracks in that master's degree 
eyes surrounded by all the pain out of hand 
i know what precisely do i mean or am i muttering again 
either way i see myself    of course    in my master's eyes 
surrounded by   all the rosette bone algae growing     
so deeply phonetic then i say    a few years worth of 
what's right and yet    look first that's how much is felt 
see the seamouth's signifier   and how much of love is glass thin   
skin cracks    in the long stemmed wine glass        full of saltspit 
there are high cheek bones and then there are high cheek bones
in a low cut white v-neck crawling with algae so deeply photosynthetic 
am   i asking myself or am i       asking me
say a few years go by what precisely do i say then
after a few thin years

 

Free chapbook: “Every Dusk is Loaded. Every Direction is Alert.”

Wikipoem.org is a website built on the foundations of free, experimental art—especially poetry and the visual arts. “Every Dusk is Loaded. Every Direction is Alert.” is a 41-page, free digital download containing a single, long poem and digital artworks by wikipoem.org editor Joseph M. Gerace. The poem was created using a simple javascript program based on “Stochastic Texts” created by Theo Lutz in 1959, and revitalized and re-contextualized by Nick Montfort in his 2016 MIT Press book “Exploratory Programming for the Arts and Humanities.”

You can preview or download “Every Dusk is Loaded. Every Direction is Alert.” below. If you find the work interesting, enjoyable, though-provoking or curious, please share it with friends, acquaintances, family, pets, the military industrial complex, mental health professionals, sex workers, known knowns, known unknowns, unknown unknowns and enemies alike. Wikipoem.org is free for everyone and I have very little marketing savoir faire. You can donate to the project here.
