Holding Myself Accountable (after Alison Knowles’ ‘Identical Lunch’)

knowles

 

five thousand dollar camera
         fixed in a tripod
same location every morning
ten years one photo

federal regulations
prohibit hanging
banners from the monument

a woman's long thin
fingers kneading eggs
into soft yellow clay

experience points
earned for being
mean to my readers

atmosphere of crime
try not to think of the poem
gasoline heat of torches

i hope
to level up
soon please god

Ten Aphorisms

Wikipedia Poem, No. 774

archtextual

“Symbols seemed to be playing a large role in this whole affair.” Robert Merle

 

  • Post-home movements and the archtextual thing.
  • Whisper leisure schools each prison disables each worker.
  • And archtextual now accordingly whispers leisure schools each person they said Bruno Queysanne knows what he knows — the person is the utopia that is hard and boring.
  • But engaged with language, the pronouncement like a mouse through an assistant’s body.
  • History is this late evening.
  • As she says in her religious underweight in May 1968.
  • Upheaval but flexible; dictated by man’s whim or sabotage of the month club.
  • This mass laughter.
  • Students find art and, through an assistant in a students’ productive forces, an assistant’s feeling of injustice or sabotage the whole world in agreement once and long ago.
  • Where to, for what?
