The Conqueror

She would arrive at about
7:30 a.m. & read from her
Bible. Are we going to drive
her from this process? The
invitations have been sent
out, the answers received,
the tags decided on—comics,
dance, drugs, party. Under

no circumstances could the
end-user be entitled to trans-
fer the aftermath of this to
any other entity. Especially
once the write-up has app-
eared in—was it?—Vogue.

He is looking at real estate in
Georgia. The choice has come
down to one of two places —
a cathedral, founded in 1015,
or an early Romanesque church
with a large romantic organ.

The church specializes in sales,
service, & rentals of bikes, kayaks,
& stand up paddleboards. It is
set in a caring environment with
many historic carriage roads. The
cathedral is of premium quality,

certified organic & natural, has a
sophisticated surveillance network.
Much as he prefers the organ over
the organic, he is leaning towards
the cathedral. Not many historic
structures are so well defended.

A / first pressing / or a reissue?

The men who now assume to rule the
country have themselves become

the victims of corruption. They are
beginning to regret the departure

of the Egyptians. A singular lack
of fingerspitzengefühl isn’t the only

way to find oneself defending the
expectation of unlimited violence.

from my favorites album

The Schwarzvogel Ficcione
Elsebet Schwarzvogel, consumptive
third daughter of the fourth
Grand Duke of Lower Saxony,
is reputed to have been
so enraptured by the resonance
of the cello she gave instructions
& a large sum of her father’s money
that on her death her intestines
were to be taken out & stretched
& strung on a quintet of instruments
she had had especially made
by those craftsmen from Cremona.
She also commissioned small works
from some of the greatest composers
of the time, & asked, without
the accompaniment of money, that
they be performed on each
anniversary of her passing. Sadly
nothing now is left except the tale
& a fragment of music
that emerged in the 1930s as
Bye Bye Blackbird & was
also destined for erasure until re-
vitalized by this recording made,
in a nice twist of synchronicity,
on the tercentenary of her death
by that great quintet of Miles Davis
from the early fifties, with Coltrane
on tenor & Philly Joe Jones driving it
along. Close your eyes. Listen for
the cello breathing in the background.

EMBOLISM


Sunday, May 21, 2017

Another slow Sunday

The car park is full of conspiracy theorists. There is also a large swimming pool

Their old-model Winnebagos & converted buses have windows covered with aluminum foil. Passersby are convinced they're disguised hydroponic gardens on wheels. They think the swimming pool is there to provide the water the cannabis plants need.

A continuous loop of the moon landing is projected onto a large popup screen at one end of the car park. At the other, Bugs Bunny cartoons are projected on to the back wall of the local bottle shop so the children have something to watch. The cartoons are regularly interrupted by drunks jumping up & saying either "What's up Doc?" or "One giant leap for mankind."

Many of those present wear a 40 badge = FourT = Trump Tells The Truth. Others wear 40+ badges: it represents their age, not that they are more fervent believers in the President. Passersby believe the badges — of either kind — are overstating the IQ of those who wear them.

The Earth is flat, not just as far as the eye can reach but beyond that, right to the edges. At least that is how the people in the car park see it. To the outsiders, it's just another example of how shortsighted these people really are.

unconstitutional suffering

The rural independents made
a strong start, beating out a

heavy rhythm of philosophical
minims & crotchets. Petered

out when they realized it was
minimalist crochet they were

meant to have taken up. Still
some resistance against changing

the old rules for masculine be-
havior. I insist on paying the bill.
