Favorite lines from Bruce Andrews’ reading last night:
Vastly cute absentee father
the first lady: that condom
ironic extra ass
the guano of moral value
impeach the mind
do the new pluperfect awful inside of the inside
anal glaucoma, as in “I can’t see my ass coming into work today,”
Is he a house president or a field president?
penis sings water water [here he stopped to take a drink]
[and my personal favorite…]
Every rebel has its period
chris cheek also gave a great reading, but I was so interested in his projections and his outfit that I forgot to write anything down. I am interested anyway in his obsession with “partials”… phonemes that suggest, but don’t complete, meaning, and how his work forefronts how compulsively and sensuously we read any text, no matter how fragmentary. Dig the groovy checker effect of his woven text/images…
Please to note, even though the photo is dark: KILT, KNEE SOCKS, BLACK BOOTS. Love it. Love it.
One thought on “Every Rebel Has Its Period”
i encourage everyone to read andrews’s book Paradise and Method (Northwestern, 2006) or at least to give it the old college try.
