A Case for Blood
Or, I language myself into bondage. The found words worm their way into my mind, self-replicating a meaning thought to be there all along. A meaning that tightens a hold on my chest until I relent to its eloquence. A meaning that spreads like a simile. The wholeness of words are institutions-in-waiting, treatises, decrees, commandments. Or like the corpuscular fact of a suicide letter,...

Everything is more beautiful because we’re doomed. You will never be lovelier...– Homer, The Iliad (via ruefle)
Do people still use the word slacker to qualify the art of aimlessness or has the bustle of the world eroded it from our parlance, retained only in me and my kind as antiquated relics of a past civilization? To slack, to reboot the operating system of one’s soul. To intermittently absolve myself of all obligations and walk the streets of this city like a nineteenth century flâneur. The...

What Awoke in that Sleep?
My earliest remembered nightmare: I was just a boy and the world was haunted. With fresh eyes I marveled over a particle of dust as it caught the morning light. Such curious imperfection of air, figment more fairy-like than dead skin, to slip into my dreams, anxiously. There then appeared a lumberjack hoisting an ax high above his head eager to cleave in half that elysian speck. I cowered...
Tederick Tumbles: On the "mysteries" of Prometheus →
tederick: 1. The med pod was for Weyland. (Weyland is male.) 2. The nanobots Elizabeth repeatedly injected herself with accelerated her healing. (Prometheus is set in the future.) 3. The planet is not the one from Alien. (Alien took place on LV-426.) 4. Space Jesus never made it to the script stage,…

My wound existed before me, I was born to embody it.– Bousquet, as quoted in Deleuze’s Logic of Sense (via autochthones)
In the end when it comes, charring the shadow’s edge, may I keep by a bonfire in the company of friends. Leave to the darkness our dispossessed homes, and with them too, the unsound premises of our dreams. No more notches on the wall, we grow to this. Let the stories unopened remain untold, and empty the shelves of every last provision. We are now freed of our need for convenience, as the diet...
