given the moment what I would have said

milk did not detain you

yellow a mere fraction of the color code across the sky

in tandem neighbors riding on blacktop toward a place we did not know

the drapes helped life be inexactly rendered and received

as much the grotto as this hesitation

staying power yes and the reverse inbred in me

the upper registers of treble clef plus flesh capped open holes in sterling

plural leaves exponentially made safe the yard from earth

Red White and Blue...

Essay - "Pandoras box"// A List...

I read this essay on www.AllFreeEssays.net and I liked it so much that I thought I'd link to it here

There's quite a few essays like this being banded about the internet these days, and most of them I like. Not by me, it's signed by an anonymous student - although in the comments section (bottom of page) there is some disagreement about this! You can see my comment on the comments section as well.


I'm going to make a brief list that, hopefully will prove informative to critics/artists (more to the former than the latter I believe) when one considers art today.

- Postmodernism is not an art movement, it is a temporary sense of stasis and reflection. This reflection will lead to a rejection of many Western values and established modes of thought.

- Modernism did not experiment with art-forms in every possible way, as is often stated. Within the context of the times that "Modernism" functioned, it experimented in many ways. However, as times change, institutions and modes of thought change, Modernism's experiments will eventually seem somewhat limiting and irrelevant, to the times when it was functioning.

- Art is returning to the people. Indeed, it may be more accurate to state that the arts are returning to the people. The social hierachies in Western countries ( see Derrida's Ecriture) are becoming more and more irrelevant. The majority of people living in Western countries can read and write and carry out basic arithmetic. The great advantage of being able to read and write (and its associated cultural status) is now the advantage of the majority.

- Multiculturalism. How can Western countries absorb people from different cultures and keep
unchanged Western value systems? Currently, in the UK the labour government that is in power, promotes cultural diversity, yet at the very heart of its government it cannot accept this diversity. This is because the systems that keep the UK government in place would collapse if cultural diversity became intrinsic to the UK. This paradox can be described as "hypereal" (Derrida). It can also be seen as a worthwhile attempt by labour to accept multiculturalism, that ended in stifling beaurocracy that represents the inability for the UK to change, at its most powerful institutions. Ultimately, this reveals an extension of the already manifest condition of New Labour as a party of soundbites over substance. The arts, of course, are addressing this, making fluid the cross-polination of differing cultures. Without activities such as the arts and sport, the uniting, celebration and, ultimately the acceptance of diversity would be a near impossible task.

looking back

I would have washed the damages away
I would have rendered the repairs
I would have limbered every tendency
I would have covered you at night
I would have shared my place with you
I would have watched the lake
I would have combed the surface of the water
I would have held our space
I would have entertained the mint new fields
I would have built a fire
I would have liked the warmth of you beside it
I would have listened to the sky
I would have rinsed the earth replete with lush wide leaves
I would have simmered happiness and grown it new
I would have happened upon elements that lit ideas
I would have jimmied locks that hampered heaven in my midst
I would have drained the fear away that we have shared
I would have opened every morsel of the heart living between us

this day mid-may

I love my work
my work is love
the work is you
I love you and I love the work

the work is play
the work is you at play
I love all day with you in it

I love the night that softens day
soft cover over what is here
with pleasure of the living
of the life this present tense
repeatedly arriving
hitched to prior present tense

a separate moment
planned and found this living
thinking of the living
breathing living
working playing
in the working
and reversing living work
and loving play
all night the other
side of day

Carmen Gonzalez's exploration of the flesh, nothing (femininity) something (the ether of the Internet) and everything (the human condition NOW). The arts now, are an attempt to give expression to a global, human conception of identity. This is what it is to be a human being NOW words like DOING (because one must) BEING (because one is) spring to mind

Academia is a huge problem in the west. Now, business-led, funded (mainly) by a government (in UK) that continues to (or attempts to) privatise industry and public services, academic study is a means to an end. Gone are the principle acquisitions of enquiry; creative thought, critical thought, curiosity, idea generation and critical debate/discussion. Instead, our academic institutions breed intellectually deprived students, swallowing and regurgitating an overload of information, graded by their ability to memorise and thoughtlessly spew forth huge texts of, at times irrelevant information.
We are not creating the thinkers of the future. We are rehashing tired theory and spurious fact, so how can people comprehend today and adjust their ideas to cope with tomorrow?

shadow on a limb that offers shade

fractions tempt wholeness
into being. when I close my eyes,
I lean open other cha,
grace trinkets its way forward into . . .

words with vowels pronounced
as song is
everlasting. when light emits
an inner steadiness, all cells
rise.

if conducive, membranes limn their way forward,
and time shifts into
times change.

Now is haste combined with fact,
the resurrection of the body
may mean infinite consequence
precedes even the thought
of doing or of being
this.

land (every one) has pulse (and I) attracted to that magnet

fervency is rained on land
and dry attachment
different from a theory
of its own within me
praises light
skin's being here
with on in and thus sparks
of intended fire chafe
surface more than surface
(there is in each ingredient
more than each this)
voice prompts away
the story carved the story
still the story that
comprises layers and is
carved and made again
itself still whole
