The New Years

In the closed circles of
psychic apparati, exposed
navels emphasize the
rural-urban rift. It is
from this dark rift that
the winter solstice sun
will emerge, offering
a single world with a
dichotomy of semantics
in which objects co-exist
with primitive types. More
problematic in theory
than in practice, it tends
towards a reductionist
framework. On the day
of the second new moon
after the December solstice
the new years begin.
