last night the lesbian ghost who haunts my shower came back. she is only there when i take a shower at two in the morning. she tilts her head and stares. she is maybe more curious than a lesbian. i offered to play scrabble with her but she just kept watching me.
i think everyone should read life as a crossword puzzle by noah falck. it is layered, it is enigmatic, it is linguistically and conceptually beautiful. there are little ohios inside. you can get a copy via a link in the margin of his blog.
also recently enjoyed mlkng sckls by justin sirois. it is inventive, it is original, it is beautiful the way a sunsetting desert is beautiful. there is snowing coconut, there are solar systems in the backyard, there is survival, there is uncooking. the latter is among my favourite unhappenings since war in reverse.
i am still excited about light boxes. i have been telling people who do not even read to read light boxes. people on social networking websites. people in supermarket aisles who are not walt whitman. the complete strangers who populate my sleep and live inside giant tulips with tentacles. homeless toothless men who play purple haze on banjos. i feel compelled to paint kites on myself and remind people of what to remember.
generally i think of art as highly private and most potent in isolation. good art is too mystical to involve other people. at least in the moment of processing it. maybe that is why people invented books and mixtapes and headphones. if someone walks in on you experiencing good art it should feel as though you had been masturbating. the potency is in isolation. and yet i think good art necessitates resurfacing, telling other people about it. maybe because it feels selfish and withholding to be alone in the experience. even that does not seem an accurate enough reason. what drives the impulse to share experience?
