Argument for Hedonist Poetry

BABEL NOT MENARD
TZARA NOT DUCHAMP

If it ain’t a pleasure, it ain’t a poem.
– W.C.W.

So K.G. defends Fritterman’s Metropolis thus:

consumerism is boring
consumerism is contemporary reality
good literature should reflect contemporary reality
_____________________________________________
good literature is boring

FUCK THAT

Fun is a medicinal bath, the culture industry never fails to prescribe it.
– Adorno and Horkheimer

Fun is no problem. Prescription is problem.
Who controls the fun controls the measure.
SEIZE THE ENDS OF LEISURE!

I welcome this poet’s image as a little piece of experimental folly, like a virtual grain of hashish without which it is impossible to enter into the reign of the imagination.
– Bachelard

Chase illicit poems.
Experimental folly is ontological resistance.

*t here:
PLEASURE PRINCIPLE=REVOLUTIONARY
REALITY PRINCIPLE=REFORMIST
REVOLUTION GOOD REFORM BAD

giving in is giving
giving in giving is
giving is in giving
giving is giving in

If there is hope, it lies in the poems.
Refuse OTC literatures!

[NEVER WORK]

Two JanusNode WebPoems

A couple of sketchy wee poems I made the other night using the excellent new WebPoem function of JanusNode 3.14. The text (including titles) was harvested from three random URLs (I haven’t checked to see which ones).
