Also since that roundtable went into the idea of trigger warnings and poetry readings:

Let’s talk about how a reading is a context. The people who read, the people who run the space you booked it at, the scenes that prop up those people, the people who attend it are all a part of this context….

Let’s.

On a semi-related side note, this reminds me of that stupid fucking Gregory Corso quote that made the tumblr rounds a few months ago. Essentially lauding him for saying that many of the women in the beat scene were institutionalized because they were…

tendons lived and tremored
rings of they were here
radiating from megacity #5

the curtain opens to flat trees
one of them is you, body forgotten
leaning against the floor

tears in the screen looks like
scribbled hangul
the interrupted laugh

the memorial names all the names
mouths lick and suck at the stone
to honor the physical against lack

but every day
the animal with a black leaf is
still left at the back of the theater

evidence is the wrong way
to carry something around
think of what is never admissible

then: cadres who distributed failure
grain to the commune of bricks
medicine to the commune of snails

mostly: empty shirts which lost you
draped on chairs which once contained you
the table, the sun, the testimony

today: waiting for the village bus
lines where you dragged your shoes
pools of clear, dangerous water


I mourn her not hearing canvasbacks
their blast-off rise
      from the water
            Not hearing sora
rails’s sweet
spoon-tapped waterglass-
descending scale-
      tear-drop-tittle
            Did she giggle
as a girl?
                                           —Excerpt from "Paean to Place"
