to explain without names

 

 

a voyeuristic spectacle that preaches a self-conscious ego mantra

 

 

simultaneous rejection / celebration of

limits

power

 

 

Do I sound mad? I am just carving out a place…

 

 

the wonderment

of obsession

 

fall / risk / devote / devour

for her, there is no other way

for some, this is it

 

visual

acting

 

 

figuring out the rules is as tiresome as it is reflective

 

 

figure your friends

your unknowns

the dedications

 

those you suppose a relation to

 

robots recite phrases indecipherable

 

 

I’ll wait. while you

run

 

 

the Text was swallowed in space

waves drifted near Time

I wandered in

 

the crowd listens as it is graced with an invitation to leave

grunting in fourth position as a protest to the neatly defined dance composition

 

“keep going”

 

an emancipatory apocalypse

a failure

 

a virtuosic play

 

we

remaining / lingering / lost

 

they

 

the thinning strands of post modernism

 

find a connection to this relentless fire

 

 

authorship happens now

response: Tatyana Tenenbaum's Thunder

a humming collective series

 

and I, you

acknowledge offerings

with light touching

 

 

 

grey clouds

 

under

tones

 

grey garments

 

head / spring / the purpose

under / tow / neck

 

to see chanting

or

anti-fiction

 

tapping reverb

tasking resonance

 

the unknowable end

reflects a slow beauty

and

style emerges

stairway to concrete

purple heat space laundry

 

clean  /  soft  /   fold

balancing marbles

breathless punctuations

daze

laughter piling

something is up and up

take from above, take in, put it out
