Usually you roast the entire pig and pluck out the eyeballs to eat along with chitterlings, hog maws and corn-on-the-cob … of course you know this eyeball tastes just like chicken … chicken gizzards ... yeah everything tastes like chicken or is that taste the nitrites, nitrates … a REAL chicken tastes just like lamb sometimes … chicken tastes just like chiwahwah ... the dog-meat being marinated for three days in a pig-urine brine … a little too salty for my taste but, what the hell ... cheap! For the project, the group turned the Curve gallery in the Barbican into a hundred-square-meter rainstorm. Real water, real droplets, real potential for getting drenched. But thanks to an array of 3-D cameras, daring visitors can pass through the rain without getting dumped on; as people walk through the space, the cameras track their movements and momentarily suspend the downpour overhead. The FBI insisted that Plante, Duran and Olejnik hand over any “anti-government or anarchist literature,” along with flags, black clothing, cell phones, hard-drives and address books even though they knew that none were even in Seattle on May Day. “Enough About Pigs,” “for a while”, “you know you’re in for a party.” You are laughing, and now you are ashamed. “The scab in the back of my throat / what used to be a blooming torso / pacing between elephant tusks / and the memory gravity leeches,” play a constant reel of anxiety. “Bent over images (the damp morning newspaper) / (the back of another’s back) were then / the curl of interminable losses cornering us / in mutually exclusive positions.” I’m not sure if this means they are untitled, or indeed, titled “XXX XXX ...” in varying degrees of X’s. “Replace your scientists and we can / prevent the holidays.” “My own life is strange / commotions in fat / cradling their tectonic dowry / on repeat. // Masks in the little ponds, / are you these masks tied to figs // with their blossoming iron?” WHAT? (Draw out the “A” for about five seconds.) I have no idea what this means, but I enjoy the fuck out of it. After this he says, “Most life is like you, / most airplanes worry,” somewhere in the mottled delirium of wakefulness and a gifted bowl of soup I learned that it was Louis Althusser’s birthday. The light coming back / pale moon. It appears this story has been narrated by a Mynah bird, whose language is a bricolage of hearsay only, and so deeply untrustworthy. !"#$%&'#( 3 +.1(&4*56 7686 .'&9+2+.9/: The ears, in the surviving examples, are generally broken off and in some instances an incision has been scored in a line running from the top to the back of the skull, but the reason for these deliberate mutilations is unknown. Presumably the owner's intention was that the reserve head should serve as substitute for the actual head if the latter were destroyed or damaged. Is this car I’m in a Saturn? It makes me want to orbit something. I think we are being orbited by that bird. What could that train be carrying at this time of day? Probably something emotional, like baseball cards.
Please, / Leave Me Alone: capitalism

the largest ever devised, and nobody is ever missing
Please, / Leave Me Alone: capitalism

several separate organisms, the mycelial fibres stretch as far as the moon and the fruiting bodies such as they are resemble … In the park I sat down to eat fish and chips and in an amputated parable of fuck knows but CAPITALISM will do. I realized I was alone. I realized I was calm, I realized I had had an acceptable Tuesday, and was going to treasure being alone, and calm, and with this in mind, I turned my phone off and didn’t listen to music, or read, or seek out a crossword, just sat there quietly, looking at the park and what was happening in the park. This was fine, for a while, but suddenly a dog was there, sniffing about, going behind the bench, going under it, and the owner said, “he’s pretending not to be interested in your food”.

Etc? Et cetera? Hell yeas [sic]. It’s just like, no, it is, a big open field. The one Arielle told me about. And like I learned under the old green lightbulb: The present is a great big room. There’s space for everything. Every little ting. ET ET ET ET CETERA!
