Things to Do with the Abnormal King

Wikipedia Poem, No. 865

w865

            Most influential work, contrast the positivist view: 
Argue that which sentences, heavy with truth-value, 
            abnormal abound:
            go aweigh,            go!

Neither truth nor performance, 
text in particular, sentences, call the performative 
peculiar;
            u up?

            Oh, abnormal king!  
Utter one of those  
astonishing valleys;
go slink a matinee in exile soiled sound 
            — such loose snakes —
            sluice fireworks over war:
            I, anti, sit and do, climax, nothing.

as a linguistic brick rather than a humanity of fields
continue to treat the translator’s invisibility as a liability

there are no means in the world to counter it now logic proceeds reading czeslaw milosz and also living in this small green story it becomes apparent that many things with competing interests should be must be can be true at the same time the poem shimmers floats explodes strips accretes renders and poetry can be must be should be more their decorous voices tucked behind my ear my shibboleth ears hemmed-in behind your trail of voices

‘Magpiety’ by Czeslaw Milosz

magpiety2

The same and not quite the same, I walked through oak forests
Amazed that my Muse, Mnemosyne,
Has in no way diminished my amazement.
A magpie was screeching and I said: Magpiety?
What is magpiety? I shall never achieve
A magpie heart, a hairy nostril over the beak, a flight
That always renews just when coming down,
And so I shall never comprehend magpiety.
If however magpiety does not exist
My nature does not exist either.
Who would have guessed that, centuries later,
I would invent the question of universals?

Montgeron, 1958

the most interesting thing about the spraying
from a big industrial gun it gives you a new body
amodal completion it’s very rare that you read
something profound and fundamental on color
più grande it’s a report on how things are today
how are things? they are afraid of the violence
within themselves for instance you walk in and
faint he said begins the bodies of two women
and two children killed in wednesday’s shelling
were also brought to the hospital isn’t one enough?
red deer headdress functional magnetic resonance
imaging measures brain activity by detecting
changes associated with blood flow more gear
from the brands you love I’ve found peace
in my manafort its single small cell though
the ceilings reach up to the bright white rain tens of
thousands of east african migrants have gone
to israel in the past decade your life can rely on
the fact that cerebral blood flow and neuronal
activation are coupled three tablespoons of fresh
chopped chives they approach you
guns drawn on lapidary corneas when an area of
also increases bright and dark night and day
summer and winter oak king holly king epenthesis
this line is how we live now the long reign blinking
retroflex consonants lexical set word ballet slipper
the brain is in use blood flows to that region peach
punch fuschia taffy destroying some necessary part of it
