Speculative Music: Poems by Jeff Dolven

The People Look Like Flowers At Last by Charles Bukowski

By Charles Bukowski

The fuel line is leaking, the chicken is long gone from the

cage, the skyline is dotted with vultures;

Benny ultimately received off the stuff and Betty now has a job

as a waitress; and

the chimney sweep was once fairly tender as he

giggled up via the

soot.

I walked miles throughout the urban and recognized

not anything as a massive claw ate at my

belly whereas the interior of my head felt

ethereal as though i used to be approximately to go

mad.

it's no longer a lot that not anything means

whatever yet extra that it retains meaning

nothing,

there's no unlock, simply professionals and self-

appointed gods and hucksters.

the extra humans say, the fewer there's to say.

even the simplest books are dry sawdust.

—from "fingernails; nostrils; shoelaces"

Imitation by Marc Cholodenko

By Marc Cholodenko

Dans cette Imitation, il est fait comme si. Comme si on pouvait penser l. a. pensée, temporer le temps. Comme si l'implication même qui nous fait percevoir du successif pouvait être expliquée. Comme si on pouvait formuler ce qui formule. Ainsi, cette utopie uchronique ou cette uchronie utopique n'imite rien. Elle imite comme si imiter était un verbe intransitif dont le lointain synonyme serait être comme penser, penser comme être condensés et mis à plat en une relation very unlikely: écrire. Cette imitation relate cependant quelque selected, une poursuite du sens, étant entendu que le sens ne peut être autrement, en dernière example, que d'imiter le sens. À cet indéfinissable, est-il permis de prêter le nom d'un autre indéfinissable : beauté? Le sens serait los angeles beauté dans los angeles mesure où l. a. beauté du sens serait le sens de los angeles beauté. Le sens : keepsake élaboré d'un element de beauté, d'une ponctuation première comme origine du sens. Imitation : du memento, revenu spontanément redonner ce coup de poinçon qui ne fut jamais donné, à l'air, et créa l'air, à l'eau, et créa l'eau, à rien, et créa rien. Comme si ce que nous pointons nous l'abolissions, mais en créant du même coup, le faisant jaillir tout autour – le temps que jaillir retombe –, tout ce qui l'entoure et même ce que comprend ce qui l'entoure.
