The Radical Cartographers

Wikipedia Poem, No. 690

“I discovered an array of dog tracks around a puddle of water. The distribution of the tracks was indeterminate. Each of these tracks radiated many possible paths leading in all directions, a maze-like network came into view with the help of my camera, which acted as a single point of view from an aerial position. My wife counted 38 paw prints in the 3′ x 3′ photo-blow-up of my snapshot, but many of the prints were obliterated by the overlapping of other print-points, rendering a clear view impossible. Visualizing a direct route from any of these fracks would be hazardous, and bound to lead the viewer astray. … A point in the mind, or a paw print in the mud, becomes a world of serial closures and open sequences that overflow the narrow focus of conscious attention.” Robert Smithson

“Define loneliness? / Yes. / It’s what we can’t do for each other.” Claudia Rankine

please show me anywhere
machines are pouring
out over plato’s erosion
reiterating: read this
dead dubious pink ruin
my television show

oh, pungent amphitheater!
what is poetry for? oh
pungent amphitheater
poetry for what? oh, pungent
amphitheater what a question
machines pound the ground

through string
you never notice
how all this reads across
the dubious
pink landscape
ruined by television

reiterating: read this
with my dearest erosion
show this pungent amphitheater
what poetry is for, oh
pungent amphitheater
poetry is for christmas

made of myth ether and yoke upon yore upon
