The disarray was as I

had remembered it. Cables

everywhere, a mottled

black bag as stand-in for

the black flag of anarchy.


I designed this pattern for

inaugural demonstrations

involving several protest

groups. Social disorder

as a procedural device.



Nouvelle not so vague


A dead bird on the

beach. The Wurlitzer


kicks in, too far out

to sea for anyone to


see it. Dogs walk their

previous owners in


scenes reminiscent of

L’Année dernière à


Marienbad. Insularity is

a forgotten way of life.

The natural evolution of enter-

tainment is to render you

increasingly isolated.


When global warming is

commercialized, the smart-

of several named Hindu

deities with a mixture of

spinach, raisins, & lean beef.


Esoteric criteria


What turns your crank? Revs

your engine? Gets you going?

I love—used to love—painting

glass. Then I found you could

download ebooks by Mark Young

activity inside a Nags Head

condo rental will appease the re-

spective bases in the primaries?



He began to write the first episode of a documentary series on serial killers.


In the Spring of 1997, which came after the Winter of 1997, which came after — depending on whether you dwelt in the Northern or Southern Hemisphere — the Fall of 1996 or the Autumn of 1997, which came after the Summer of 1996 or of 1997, which came after the Spring of 1996, which, no matter whether you dwelt in the Northern or Southern Hemisphere, came exactly a year before the Spring of 1997, which came after the Winter of 1997…..
