Sacrilege, I say. You say, poppycock. I say we go for ice cream on a pear tree, and the partridges be damned.
I have the eyeless in guaguanco player piano boll weevils in exploding plastic shades. I have a plastic covered couch and a handheld cassette player.
I have gutted all my visceral fish and lived a livestock week in panoply and cornucopia. I have called upon Mr. Pharmacist to make my life more bittersweet. He only succeeds at distant quasar sounds.
Oh please be here because I am and I don’t really want to go there where you’re not.
I have well trod ways of going off the rails. I have multifoliate multivariances and polyvalencies of texts. I have Brakhage films to screen and John Cage bubblegum to chew.
And thus I have chosen.
“As the jingle has it:
‘Brothers my first obligation
Is to tell you outright:
We’re in a tough situation
With no hope in sight’
Friends, a wholehearted admission
And a wholehearted UNLESS!”
— Bertolt Brecht / “The Truth Unites”
