Product Information

"There will be a revolution or there will not. If the latter these poems were nothing but entertainments. If the former it will succeed or fail. If the latter these poems were better than nothing. If the former it will feature riots and looting and these will spread r they will not. If the latter these poems were curiosities. If the former it will feature further riots manifestos barricades and slogans and these ill leap into popular songs or they will not. If the latter that's that. If the former these popular songs will be overcome or they will not. If the latter these poems were no different than the songs. If the former the popular itself will be abolished via riots barricades manifestos occupations and fire or it will not. If the latter we will spend several more decades talking about culture. If the former the revolution will at this point be destroyed from within or without. If the latter these poems went down fighting. If the former it will feature awful confrontations with former friends and there will be further manifestos new slogans ongoing occupations and communes and lovers will be enemies. We do not know what will happen after this point but surely this is enough to draw some preliminary conclusions. The poem must be on the side of riots looting barricades occupations manifestos communes slogans fire and enemies."

 

“My Life in the New Millennium”
 
It was true that the more I hated people the more I loved cats.
Then people started to surprise me. 
Often this involved fire or coca-cola
bottles with petrol which amounts to the same thing. 
Once fire is the form of the spectacle the problem 
becomes how to set fire to fire. 
Some friends were prepared to help with this which
Michael Jackson having died and then Whitney Houston
was the new pop music. Without an understanding
of the world system and the underlying truth of land
as the place of politics and the sea as the space of commerce
it is hard to integrate that other
most important fact of our era. Pirates. My friends
and pirates and cats — it comes down 
to comrades known and elsewhere.
