Expectation is the self's way of demanding that reward and insisting on it now, and Mystery can just go take a hike.

this from nick piombino's fait accompli... where he posts his old journal stuff... puts a finger on feelings i get whenever somebody scrunches up a face to ask... "yeah... but what does it mean?"... thanks, nick... i just might memorize this bit for such moments... ("socious" will knock them out)...

As a poet, I am a phenomenologist of the
inner socious- I must leave it to others to discover
what benefit might derive from the strangely shaped
fossils I discover there. They may have significance
for the politician, the political activist, the political
scientist or the political theorist- but as a poet,
I may be the least able to see this in my own work.
When I look at the work of others, I am most likely
toi frantically search through every word for the esoteric
information I am strongly driven to try to find.

Russell Edson, Poet

Mr Brain was a hermit dwarf who liked to eat
shellfish off the moon. He liked to go into a tree
then because there is a little height to see a
little further, which may reveal now the stone, a
pebble--it is a twig, it is nothing under the moon
that you can make sure of.

So Mr Brain opened his mouth to let a moonbeam into his head.

The National Islamic Front, situated in northern Sudan, declared a holy war on all Sudanese Christians and animists in 1989. (Christians and animists populate southern Sudan.) Some 2 million people have died as a result of the war. Five million have become refugees.

shift: we've noticed over the past year that when a student wants a blank sheet of paper he or she will ask "do you have any computer paper?"... once it might have been typing paper... xerox paper... "computer paper" brings to mind those thick wide stacks of linked sheets fed through those old dot matrix machines...

first period poetry performances were mostly very fine... no total meltdowns... just a few minor glitches... some even managed to capture and express a reasonable/believable tone... which i know is no small achievement... most kept the nerves under control...
