pussy riot, repent

"I spoke of nightbuses and eternal rain."

Pussy Riot, repent!

Conflict minerals.

An introduction to Old Avestan.

Only at the turning of the seasons does new thought become possible.

Suicide management.


"Too much sternness": a judgment on the world, that well might be made by a neotenous ape.

The unheimlichkeit of romanization.

"Are secrets a tunnel to a dreamworld where you control events?" --DeLillo, White Noise

(via bldgblog)

the cold orrery · tatters of the king
on the shore wolves · answer whales
toad crosses · my shadowy path
the dark by the dumpster · keep going

baroque clock · this maze margin
ragged edges · of the yellowing deckle
sienna cup · by half light
an order scattered · we return now

our desires formed · rogue linoleum
the harsh whisper · of a house on fire
the old dog huffs · & the pall intervening
closes ranks · becomes a wall

vindaloo blowback

(via cardcow dot com)

Benignant, inconsolable desire,
the sword of Orion, intricate Carcosa
build & remain alive within, like coral;
grow & yet stow beneath my tan fedora.

What of tomorrow's restive story coded
in glyphs, etched into an aluminum cube?
I only know the chore of celadon
unceasing, i only wield the neumes of breath.


"[In 1914 I]t was impossible to take democratic socialist internationalism seriously after the Socialist parties in all the belligerent countries opted for nationalist war over class solidarity and international class interest. Men were willing to die for the Italian nation but not for the international working class." --William Pfaff, The Bullet's Song (2004).
