Yes, the spectacle looking back at us . . . to paraphrase Roland Barthes. And, the sweep of western art and philosophy inherent to my mind in the plaque of antlers, pedestaled busts, hung friezes recalling Josef Beuys and his shamanism, Duchamp’s Mutt as well as the continuous processes of consumption and elimination. So rich, in terms of depth, our human art-making, as here, and yet how empty oftimes our response(s) can be when relationship is missing between. – Donna Fleischer

TAME AS BROKEN, by Scarecrow

TAME AS BROKEN

 

i.

 

Chained to the wall of the universe.  Waiting for civilization

to come to civilization.  This rage of mortality.

This turbulence of want.

 

This howl of meat.

 

Burning meat.  Robot blood.

 

Carnival atmosphere.

 

This last glass of wine.

 

 

 

ii.

 

Flip a switch for daylight

and listen to the machinery groan.

 

The rhythm is off.

Loud and clear.

 

 

 

iii.

 

The very wheat does tremble.
