coming to a B&N near you

don't let someone else tell you what to do (& other paramaxims)
vague advice press, shelf-help distribution (c), 2013. index cards.
(pap philosophy)

people should learn to be less didactic

personally, I don't care for lyric expression

if only we could not speak in absolutes

I'm not sure that I get understanding

I just wish we could not want

at this point in time, can you even use a word like paradigm

what if we all just give up hypotheticals

take time each day

slit silt stil (list

hail take your shoes
you're tracking oblivion
all through the house
welter of parchment
paper see & probable whist
well while you war
singe protracts querulous
titles for being little
they'd better will & albeit
far from we if
that's all you get it's
all you get maybe all that you
get's it if that that
that meted out-measure
mattered if
if if & its it wore prettier
habits to sit on
spindly caste minding even
such such were the ploys
halved & to whole hell
uneven evening tripe
a spot unripened callus a
small wafer bewavering pier
is it us come to this
it is pare all's
all well is well, is hail
through the house

pass the mustard; or Please, no more context

for those not familiar with Stephen Burt's strategic takedown of the new-old charade that is Conceptual writing, "All the fun's in how you say a thing", I strongly recommend giving it an ear. if you have had the pleasure, may I recommend Brian Doyle's translation of the piece, titled "The poem is everything else except the lines on the page". Doyle's text reframes Burt's righteous ire against Dworkin & co., pillorying the silly and overstated value which conceptualism attributes to appropriative practices. Doyle even parodies the enthymemic gesture of an authorial exit, so cliché in the work of showy unoriginalists like Dworkin, Bök, Place et al. in this new, satiric context––let's call it the target language––, the intention of Burt's original source text is preserved and even amplified, ensuring that his piece will live on in its "age of Fame," or so Walter Benjamin. (see kids!) context doesn't really matter.

Some novelty. Take that, T.S. Eliot!

from "The Little Girl I Once Knew"

She's not the little girl I once knew
(She's not the little girl I once knew)
She's not the little girl I once knew
(She's not the little girl I once knew)

She's not the little girl I once knew
(She's not the little girl I once knew)
She's not the little girl I once knew
(She's not the little girl I once knew)

She's not the little girl I once knew
(She's not the little girl I once knew)
She's not the little girl I once knew
(She's not the little girl I once knew)

She's not the little girl I once knew
(She's not the little girl I once knew)
