Proposition Hems

--for Eliza Newman-Saul


Use your hearing to see.

Then should we say, “Do you tear that”?

*

Alter this color blue without touching it or seeing it.

Put it elsewhere.

If blue can not be put here, put it here.

*

Each thought is a vestment rolling upon another vestment, opening.

Fold your thoughts as many times as possible.

*

Through the other side of everything you see.

*

Zoom.

*

In

*

Your eyes are not flashlight beams or headlight beams or spotlights or X-rays or animated gifs or surveillance devices or GPS satellites or cell phone headsets or distant video monitors with the contrast all wrong or torn billboards or a dissolve to white.

Your eyes are ___________________________

*

Thicken your ears.

Like concrete.
Like cake.
Like come.
Like money.
Like resemblance.

*

Before you think – hear.
Before you hear – think.
Before – you think hear.
Before – you hear think.

*

Fail to be similar.

*

Fault every union for despair.
Doubt empathy totally.
Criticize continuity.
Hate hate.
Fuck fucking.

*

Feel a function of thinking.

Imagine such a function without thinking.

*

Your eyes are convoluted (tied).
Your eyes are pink.
Your eyes are tweezers.
Your eyes are little Gods.
Your eyes get fucked when they see.

*

You are the glass our lips both kiss.

I am the fog on that glass.

We are the glass shattering but not the fog clearing-up.

Our eyes, like dreams, are made of milky blackness.

*

Preliminarily believe.

*

See “dream-images” near to eyes (30 cm.) and everywhere else.

See smoke aswarm with fear, “the primitive gloom”.

*

You are the glass our lips both kiss.
Remove these lips but not the glass.
Do not stare into this glass.

*

Stage each degree of being…

each devil, each name, each moment of history.

“The primitive gloom” and a conative light.

*

Fail to be different.

*

Put it here.
Hear it put.
Put put.
Hear hear.
Here here.

*

Reach inside inside.
Reach outside inside inside.

*

See through the other side of everything.

*

Preliminarily disbelieve.

*

Believe in belief only.
Doubt to believe.
Believe to doubt.

*

Put it there.
There there.

*

Picture a vacuum. Vacuum a picture.

*

Think with your ears.

Thicken your eyes.

*

THHIIIICCCCCKKKEEN.

*

Hallucinate the literal.
Hallucinate the littoral.
Hallucinate the clitoral.
Hallucinate the pictorial.

*

Compose for an hour in a minute.

Compose for a year in a second.

*

This color has no name.

*

Pretend your body can occupy no space.

What would this look like?

Draw a picture and bury it.

Call this place of burial the place where nothing can be put in space.

Call your body a sudden resting place.

*

Think of a correspondence between a color and a place.

Name this correspondence differently then both the color and the place.

*

Ignite the space your body can’t occupy.

*

The sun is a giant cataract.

Catamarans seem to float in the sun.

There is nothing similar about the sun and a catapillar except when we can see the solar sea.

*

Die. Cry. Spy. My. Arrive. Pie.

*

Divulge the true name of this sentence.

Change this true name and don’t divulge it.

This too is an event of conscience.

*

Believe in the value of this sentence.

*

As if… night were not upon you.
As if… you were all of the same substance.

*

Real people are actually ghosts.
Actual ghosts are blurry shapes.
Blurry shapes are often letters.
Letters are ceaselessly meaningful.
The ceaselessly meaningful is only real.

*

Make these words disappear.

This word, in particular, has no sense.

Blind the rest of the world for one second.

Imagine nothing then and only then.

*

See and hear nothing.

Be nothing.

Nothing nothing.

Be near nothing.

Nothing near.

Never.

Nearer.

Hear the clear light.

Make the voice in your head heard aloud as constantly as possible.

*
This ringing.

*

Play alive.

*

Nearer Nearer Nearest.

*

Have no image of yourself that is not the image of everything else too.

*

Move in time to move time.

*

Move time without time.
Move time without space.
Move space without space.
Move space without time.

*

to move time.

*

Hear shadows, the flaying of the sea.

*

Pretend a sea never existed to be seen.

*

lay live

*

“Is only real” “people are ghosts”.

*

Nothing as something.
Something as nothing.
Something something.

*

Through the other side of everything you see.
