Zeitgeist Spam: Dream of Carl Solomon

Dream of Carl Solomon

I meet Carl Solomon,
“What’s it like in the afterworld?”
“It’s just like in the mental hospital.
You get along if you follow the rules.”
“What are the rules?”
“The first rule is: Remember you’re dead.
The second rule is: Act like you’re dead.”
*
This is the last poem in the new Allen Ginsberg, Wait Till I’m Dead: Uncollected Poems.

Poems and Poetics: From Technicians of the Sacred (expanded): Six Poems of Desperation by Worker Poet Xu Lizhi

Waiting in Line

The packed crowds in this city

crawl up and down the streets

crawl up and down the pedestrian bridges, into
the subway

crawl up and down this earth

one lap around is one life

this fire-driven fire-singed species

busy from birth to death

only at the moment of death do they not cut

in line

they lower their heads, follow in order

and burrow back into their mothers’ wombs

Dada to Daesh: 100 Years Ago Today…

THREADSUNS

above the grayblack wastes.

A tree-

high thought

grasps the light-tone: there are

still songs to sing beyond

mankind.

– Paul Celan
