(Remember the distance or color does not matter but love matters alot in life) (queenetqueeen@ yahoo.com) DONT REPLY ON FACEBOOK PLS. The past, the present and the future walked into a bar. It was tense. OK. Freedom Books in London was firebombed this morning. Here begynneth the vertues of the aquavite. Oh, this old pocket watch? It was given to me by my father before he passed on. It originally belonged to my great-grandfather. It doesn’t work, but I carry it just the same. Would you like to 1) steal 2) borrow 3) admire 4) lick 5) appraise it? Ben Roylance, which P. Inman book did you take from me? Think Of One? And are you going to ever give me Docking, Rust Archon back or what? I finally got my own copy of The Fast so you can have it back. Swapping books, taking names. Mark Johnson are you a P. Inman reader? Cathy Wagner? Tyrone Williams? Thom Donovan? Kari Freitag? We turn to the first section of Anti-Dühring and read: … things and their mental images …”; or to the first section of the philosophical part, which reads: “But whence does thought obtain these principles [i.e., the fundamental principles of all knowledge]? From itself? No … these forms can never be created and derived by thought out of itself, but only from the external world … the principles are not the starting point of the investigation [as Dühring who would be a materialist, but cannot consistently adhere to materialism, holds], but its final result; they are not applied to nature and human history, but abstracted from them; it is not nature and the realm of humanity which conform to these principles, but the principles are only valid in so far as they are in conformity with nature and history. …” 8:30 a.m. I wake up listening to Making Contact on KEXP. The host, a young woman with a pleasing voice, asks “what is green and sustainable about dams and hydroelectricity?” I fall back asleep. I wake again, this time to Derek Jensen, who remarks, very poetically, that rivers are living beings. “I have a friend in the fisheries community,” he says, “It breaks her heart when a river floods a valley or plain. Frogs, trees, snakes, salamanders, everything dies. But then, when the river recedes, the region’s fertility is greatly increased. In other words, a short-term loss becomes a long-term gain. This is true in so many aspects of our existence. Why do we stay in bad relationships or jobs? It’s because we fear short-term loss, when we could be benefitting from long-term gain.” Every time I get dressed Louis Quatorze of France comes to mind. Dos Ojos means “two eyes.” I watch as Carlos Coste sits cross-legged on the ground doing Yoga-like breathing, preparing to hold his breath for ten minutes while he glides through the water, making undulatory movements with a uni-fin, weaving in and out of the columns and rock formations in the subterranean lake. 8:30 p.m. I read ;Les Champs magnetiques and Les Vases communicants. I get out some Windex, squeeze the trigger and feel a fine spray through the little hole of the CD. It feels good, this liquid. I rub the CD with Kleenex.
