Abstract

The text seeks to generate and disorganize thoughts/feelings/events around the production and consumption of poetry. It appears preoccupied with some kind of white masculinity: a man-mess that willingly admits its own trespass (consumption) and hallucination. The text is junky and self-absorbed, and it relies on sarcasm and dissimilitude. Spelling, syntax and other technical opportunities are exploited. They are exploited to call attention to their failure at consistency within textual production and uniformity. The text wishes to be a text without the ability to be a text. It has a failed understanding and assurity of itself. These casual summaries are intended to highlight particular practices of the poem and cannot be total. The poem is a site of excrement.
