RE: Tie me UP

Can't wait to see what Alex Gildzen has to say about things at UNM creative writing program. Big deal poet resigning over a fellow writers SM hobby??? Oh my. Maybe Alex is next in line...we can only hope. This could be bigger than Flarf vs. Conceptualism!!!!!

RE: Count me in

Here is a quote from Ron Sillimans blog about, oh, schools I guess:

" In much that same way it is possible for writers who are inarticulate about their relationship to all that has been written could also be said to exist outside the framework of these traditions. But “writers who are inarticulate” is a category unto itself. "

RE: the two thousands

Without doubt, to me, the most engaging, thoughtful, innovative stuff in the (poetics) blogosphere just now.

Feels like (and I don't want to bring or make comparison beyond my own reaction ) Stein and Acker and by that I mean that is how I felt reading through the entries...there is a power that creates notice and distress and confusion and laughing...lot of that...all of which drew me to the above.

Okay...last nite I found a copy of Pussy King of the Pirates on my shelf....signed by K.A.and old buddy S Clay Wilson who did endpapers. Pirates...god bless em every one. Acker knew pirates by god. Arghhh...lick it pusscakes!

Eyes wide open
Laid out flat
Take out what you want
Leave anything
I admit it aint worth much
Don't go all out
Don't give up either
I aint waitin any more
You get what you want out of here

Finding a link to The Saint creates uncontrolled and unannounced drumming that seems to
indicate a flatline has been spiked back to bounce.
