Merely the Author Using Handy Language

We can have no idea how often or on what scale such
names have dropped out of sight.
We should not know it had happened here had not
a few frivolous, intoxicating nullities chanced to
survive and to be reported.
Very likely, page after page, we have not the slightest idea
what was present to the mind of Gardens, the sheer audacity
of whose umbrapoeia holds together impenetrable
remarks about corn-ringed promises which
for all we know may have been
promise-ringed corn
since the syntax permits that understanding,
and may even have come to the American mind from Mexico,
grain-boundary and word-bond.
There is no way to tell.
Sometimes we can tell something.

Athletic wit: the etymology is balbuzie, a stutter in the
lingua franca of paperback antipsychiatry’s
“conditions of possibility” and “resistance to all authoritative readings.”
Gardens wittholds this indiscretion till the penultimate “ward,”
where attention to detail must rhyme it with the daughter’s limping
dance in a passage written (but not published)
two decades prior.

Manual (the mind, becoming a vagina, grasps the finger)

Manual (the mind, becoming a vagina, grasps the finger)
for Gherasim Luca, Intermezzo I for D. Allighieri, Intermezzo II for Ray Davis

I.
Next time we will collect that murmur,
knowing full well a set of silver forks
will not fill the heavy spaces
that sometimes fall between guests.

By dint of a half-seen reflection in those avid suspecting eyes,
the other three of us made sneaky faces to the effect that
there are ____ such that it is impossible to try to separate them.
There probably was, in fact, a sign, but who among us (least of all, me)
would presume a solely nominal concept?

~Intermezzo~ Nine bars of extemporaneous cussing.

II.
The derivation of forms was down off the bluff,
by the river. When would the building connect?
[by the late 1880’s, for two reasons]. Some of us hipped others.
The Apparatus (we’d seen it!) had grander plans in mind –
to go down to the train tracks, to go down to the mall/fountain area –
a lever, as opposed to a switch. Oh, and I forgot to mention,
it’s available at the library. Try not to lift whole chunks out of it.

III.
For my edifimication, a parable:
A boy graduated from school and realized his neighborhood –
previously assumed immaculate…bustling, community-based, industrious,
all the shopkeepers, uncles – emitted a noxious odor. When he arrived
at the city, for university, he –

~Intermezzo II~ Six lines given away.

IV.
By dint of the way your fork scrapes your incisors,
the other two of us made furtive glances to the effect that
there are ____ such that it is useless to try to unify them.
There probably was, in fact, a sign, but who among us (least of all, me)
would presume a solely nominal concept?

V.
For the price of a joke, this judge will burn advice, his tongue will glide toward the spill.

Draw me a round circle – nope, fat chance, brother. A fake smile is an admission in any language.

Approach work to find patterns (by reusing a fimiliar example or to help overcome this problem)
to find patterns that had gone unnoticed before – the conventions that we must teach are arbitrary,
beyond being unconnected to learning; we should not claim for them some inherent moral or logical superiority.
Most attempts to defend prescriptive rules by logic don’t hold water anyway, and it’s better not to pretend otherwise.

VI.
So, all my bad luck today was because I had to see you.
I bought a small coffin, because I reckoned that the one
under the ground must have rotted long ago – I suddenly
felt very happy. I was floating in the blissful haze that
characterizes religious transcendence and the onset
of alcohol poisoning. I had an appointment with
People magazine.

She also revealed an objective state of affairs.
She corrects this misunderstanding of love: She
confesses to this idolatry. Her generosity of spirit
is not to lay claim to any and therefore not to
desire to own or keep anything, in this life, or the next.

Moreover, if we come with D summarize that D the law of D thermodynamic sound
melt second base of concept illusion, become have right like allow logically a D like the possibility of a D law,
in this case D theory of D reversibility of D universe almost become different physics take with him be clean
revenge, since a D commutable physically the law its D base that of a theory.

If the facts can in a case like
an illusion of concept,
why in another case,
one not does not explain
one observes?
