Is there a point?
#27
I got drunk Saturday night. When I got tired of looking at Beth Roars; . : .


It takes a lot of punctuation, if you're lonely, unless, of course, __________________


This is a really good video.




Jiddu Krishnamurti proved that Gurgjieff and me and you and everybody else who's ever lived is wrong about everything.

U. G. Krishnamurti, beyond T. S. Eliot's Waste Land, and everything else, well, if you're willing to listen, whatever.

My favorite part in The Cocoanuts, is when they're running through rooms, and Groucho acts like he's getting ready to take off his coat, and . . . 

You know if you know.

When I really got into Beckett, is when my library first started getting rid of books. Those nice hardcovers, published in the '50s.
I remember I went in there and noticed they were all gone. All in a heartbeat.

B for Beckett.

But the oldest looking books went first.

And what I noticed.

The Salinger books. Hardcover.
And the Sartre novels. I actually really liked Sartre's novels they had there. They'd been there since I was a kid. More than the philosophy,
which they had until . . .

And Hesse.
Hesse I sworn to in that library.


In the '90s.


And if I start with the mythology or folklore section, I'm going to cry.

I had to steal books.
My fairy book was destroyed.
When that happened, I no longer considered that library as a human dwelling,
and just took what I wanted.

They destroyed a first edition of Yeats' A Vision. Who the fuck does that? Unless they were lying.

But it was a Public Library. Did somebody go online and decide they could sell stuff?
Or did they do what they said, and toss the stuff out the way to make room for the new authors?

I tried to do a poetry reading there, and they rejected me.


And then I felt proud.

These new authors are better than me and Yeats.


,,,,


Then I realized that wasn't the case.

And I found this U. G. Krishnamurti video that discredits everything.

Is there a point?

I think there is

.

Discuss.

Or

Empson. William Empson made that comment in a critical essay, edited in a 1980s book of literary criticism, collected by Harold Bloom.

Hart Crane, a mug's game.

That very book, I stole from my old library.
And so, you know, fits this discourse.

The majority of that volume is harsh on Crane. But Harold Bloom is the editor, and, so, Bloom waves his covering angel wings over the whole thing, and Hart Crane comes out the winner.

How do you say winner that emphasizes the er in French? WinnER!

Any fuckin way, Ug Krishnamurti seems to have all of us aced.

I understand perfectly what U. G. Krishnamurti is talking about.
I never grew up in the church.
My first exposure to religion were the essays of D. H. Lawrence.

I am in a world not your own.


But it is the real world.

I posted a real tubular documentary about DH Lawrence. Did anybody watch it?

The reason they made those books of poetic criticism so easy to steal is because nobody knows anything.

I didn't make a double negative, but I did in spirit.

We're into cutups now.
Have any of us read Philip Larkin?
Elizabeth Bishop?
Carl Samuels?

I made that name up. Carl Samuels.
If there is a real poet named Carl Samuels, well, you just got served.

Let's dive into some necromancy, honies. It's getting dull. Read Thomas Hardy: the poetry.
You'll come back with more you have.

And, new members, you haven't posted anything yet. And if you're reading this, you're probably not posting.
Stop reading.
