At *Around Sea*
~ for Brenda Iijima
"Under the wind waves I transcribe the relentless
no measure with which to embroider"
~ Brenda Iijima
"-- there was nothing more devastating than finding
the birds gone"
~ Rob Halpern
"To render inoperative the machine that governs our conception of man will therefore mean no longer to seek new--more effective or more authentic--articulations, but rather to show the central emptiness, that hiatus that--within man--separates man from the animal, and to risk ourselves in this emptiness: the suspension of the suspension, Shabbat of both animal and man."
~ Giorgio Agamben
of the creature needs stating.
~ Louis Zukofsky
"Here, structure is not satisfied in the molecule, is not additive; but is fulfilled only in the whole work, the apprehension of the work's "life" springing anew in each realization, each immediate cell."
~ Robert Duncan
"The expression of artworks is the nonsubjective in the subject: not so much that subject's expression as its copy; there is nothing so expressive as the eyes of animals--especially apes--which seem objectively to mourn that they are not human."
~ Theodor Adorno
Consequentially this firewall or crashing code of waves
Discontinuously *here* were actual spirits
Animated as rock and *mundus* green profounder
Yet for an imaged spring a Maying disasters sing
What they first meant retrospectively not without
Effect before reflections were committed
To that original cancer "Man" mistook for the animal
Always also *in* "him" separate for the Open
Not our animal selves those otherwise noble
Not the mind disidentifying scope & scrape scrap scape
Consequentially not an entity continues to survive
Its critique before disaster became decadent
Called Humanism (euphemistically, perversely) "demo-
cracy" called Art (fascistically, wrong headedly) "popular" *I don't
Want no silicone* (Ed Ruscha) do we "beautifully" hallucinate
Eclipse would we be that noble creature diurnal & entranced
Before darkest light was braver than any commenced mind
Stranger than force of rock force of this promise Beyond
Indebted as such to which sensations and flatness occur
What materials we once made abstract must become disasters
So it is the suffered activate our perfect consequence
A concrete music a music for concrete corporeal particulars
Must be built until the sky rises stop the earth where our hands
Could be consequentially unmade unworked as it were
Again what devolves to these forms grammar snap plastic
To tendril pivot spring where waves won't become captive
As motions quantum likewise around them "delay, decay"
Land littorally literalized notwithstanding this virtual vigil
In our accretions for worlds again sponge percept a blotter
Extracts eyes from Truth a grammar of relation scores sight
Sites the patterns of a shell gnomic so we were reborn
Where once the cries of organs began the "human" recurs
In barbaric gnosis the Open falling to shudder suddenly
"Shiddow-shadow" synthesizer fail for "Nature" provokes
Its own "good work" immediations of mediacy this is but
"A draft of a draft" vocoded where immanence will irrupt
Transcendence can't be put for sure pulsating (for H.D.)
Turned against manners our logistics or a style of fable
Your fabled bees becoming breakers abuzz at breakneck
Speed slowest strobes auto-poesis like standing waves
Utter singularity numbered to every number every One
Must be signed subtracted from "us" fabled subjects
Your animals fall to prepositions neither the other's mine
Around this mirror metapolitics dreaming other contents
Disaster phases number slows this menance down
Pretend to collapse my dearly imagined subject my desire
To be at you around little objects hovering harbinging
What bird Event a voice beside and what is over it crashing.
