"Starsky and Hutch reruns, dubbed into diverse languages, may turn out, in the long run, to be a greater force for human rights than the Declaration of Independence." --Neal Stephenson, In the Beginning...Was the Command line (1999)


caltrops, tacks, and broken glass

talisman eloigned
set page scaling to none
I wait · for you there
like · a stone

the magical efficacy
violets are blanu
of chicken blood
lime-green spongy vortex
on a dark desert highway
von Winde verweht
among the cephalopods

"Binoculars fixed on a strange new bird..." --Jimmy Carter


Speaking through erasures. (via Silliman)
