Notes on Baudelaire (4)
(((13))) --- but at least no-one is entirely price-fixed, not yet. what VOICE are you on this morning? well, I feel like an infinitely dense ball of combustible metal, ie a planet, ie this city:::: cigarette / almond croissant. or the pitched green malevolance of the english countryside. it bark. its nasty little churches.
(((14))) --- then again, we can at least describe some of the elements necessary for a healthy personality. photographed 500 times a day, we are image cancer & proliferate /// or the gesticulating figure becomes a dot fixture, an index of servile redundancy. yet think of the sky’s image howling, creased & shared within these collective eyes.
(((15))) --- most people, however, fall between two extremes and are normal or within normal limits, connected by a system of tubes and pulleys to an almost visible roar within the tedious crowd. each letter of the alphabet is this communal “I”, gesticulating wildly. meanwhile, the melt core of London is just this string of secretive or selective ideas. if you force-feed them rubble & bulldoze their throats they will flinch & scream.
(((16))) --- lies are necessary. at times ****** this is the squirting through, after all, it was there in these poems and within that a taboo against using the word lyric. tedious crowd. each image howling. so now it is our means of entering Paris 1857, which has effigies of London, daily x-rays of the papers (city-image / pulse-rings should be commercially poems . . . .
(((17))) --- I am hard of & can’t hear my own voice. we hope to reach beyond our condition or puke on the hope society. that was a fragment of dialogue. you are scum. I think I should kiss you. Baudelaire is not important. modern poetry is crisis exhaust. it is very strange: call it thought, however, falls / or London does collectivedly on its clean capitalist face EXAMPLE split 'it'::::make it distant & weirdly dense balls of combustible letters, meaning am trapped in Hackney /// am one of its ghosts, mouth soldered.
