Q.  
Seeing a great resurgence 
in 2018? Hers, are attracted to 
          invisibility 
of figurative 
     painting. Why?


A.
Bigot, reinforced by 
an 
   authoritarian zealot; reintroduced 
in a nation 
    fit 
          perfectly into 
       the 
    narration 
      fit 
    perfectly into the message-less 
    silence of the father. Along with no visible differen’t 
room 
for 
     bullshit 
       in a 
nation fit perfectly into 
  the message-less silence 
from the weren’t. 
It's 
clearer 
now that inconsequential decoration led by 
          an authoritarian bigot, reinforced by 
     an authoritarian bigot, vanquished by an 
authoritarian 
      bigot, reinforced 
by 
a political 
     system sober
          with 
gin and vigor. It's clearer 
        now 
          than ever—than ever!—that 
inconsequential decoration fit 
          perfectly into the room for 
    bullshit.

“Oh. Yes. It’s not a critique of language as much as it is a critique of desire as it manifests itself in language, as it manifests itself in structure and organizations. Look, those cloistered sisters in ‘Eschatological Prayer’ open up Saint Claire’s body, and they find proof, inside, of … (a metaphor made literal) … and they gained nothing by it.” Jorie Graham

at this 
      vast dragged upon beach
      or claws leashed all

      this agreement to federal acquisition 

     if we have no rights

then the software
the pulsing content of its basic enmity 
must be scratched out 

     if we have

its mere-ness
