The Pope At Avignon

 

“I remain the Pope at Avignon

because nothing in this world can conceal me

I test the limits of my evil

prone as I am to bloody offspring by debacle

I

being the leathery witness of evil

I

being the culture of the offspring of evil

I

who ferry toxins on the Sabbath

I

who blossom by means of spillage & errata

seeks in his conclusives to amalgamate hypocrisy

to ascribe to force a plain & turbulent bleeding

assured that my own hosannas resound

that the force of my name alters cataracts in hell

because

I can in no ways do otherwise

perhaps pontificate

announce bread

breed the scars on my flanks as signs from the above

raising as I do certain virgins up from fire

extracting a carnal medicine from the eyelids

I left Rome

to inculcate the Bosporus

thus I remain strategic

in that my eyes are flawed

that my hands are tragically spent

this

the charismatic occurrence

of I who seems to dwell within the pastures of deeper sweltering

I

being the sorcerer who shreds gowns

who creates justice in life by supreme & opulent verdict

by miasma which lingers & verifies confusion

by the dark forms of sand

by the diamonds which erupt eros

that would lead one to believe that I am clinging to ruination

for inconsolable payment

for making land conform to the object of rent wheat

thus

I am posterior to different forms which inhale the sun

thus

I am recondite by instability

having fathered 2 magnetic serpents in my struggle with containment

of course I am divided

merismatic & melancholic

thus

I grant myself the folly

the ambrosia

the scales the weigh the cunning in my mitre

thus

I trespass heaven

& ascend through stars by nucleic transposition

thus

the bishops advance my meddlesome fornication

one by one advancing my secrets

absorbing in their persons a tacit henbane in the skin

& one by one they’ll fail

as if a medley of serpents conspired against their treason

& when they die

I’ll give them over to God

I’ll say they posses a cleansed rooting & an ochre foil in their hearts

I’ll say that their secret assignations were justified by limit

by double fathering in the genes

so that their offspring will conspire to teach me consummation

to take in the soils from amniotic shelters

with codes which reveal the lower constituency of boasting

thus

I am a miracle in this regard

I control by lamentation

by fragments & disbelief

by feral conundrum as status

thus

I cohabit on revolving sheets of coal

because

each contaminate strengthens

as if I pulled a fetid sheaf from lagoons

& traded various boats of opal

along with a cardinal or reddish manganese in the eye

& so

amidst the routes of the Bosporus they admit

my own accursedness

yet they shield me

they offer intrigue

they offer forgone specifics

so as to shelter my mission

knowing as they know

that gold condenses as evil

that Jesus Christ limits & is sorcerous & askew

they know

Kemetic investigation

they know

the stolen urns

the non-recorded labour

they know

that the one true God has never emended his thinking

or struggled with his own catharsis

understanding that I’ve slept with the offspring of eels

I’ve hidden a lamb in my garments

having struggled with beasts & all the 4 legged raptors

thus

I’ve come to my decision

to slaughter as opposed to retainment

always

concocting in my brain

the structure & physiology of monsters”

 

 

 

Inalienable Recognitions

 

     A lecture given at Beta-Level

     Los Angeles, June 2007

 

Colonized by the rhetoric of visibility, one turns around in

 

a microbe warren, fighting for status according to forms

 

which accrue from the fleeting frontal body. According to

 

this frontal body one is arrayed in static remnants, in

 

corpse-like postures which devolve into the active snare

 

of concussive social tissue. A social concussive which

 

suppresses and re-suppresses poetic conduction. Within this

 

blinding decurrence one is always summoned by mislaid

 

agendas, by quick-sanded mazes, by formally engendered

 

suffocations, all in the service of diabolical cogitos.

 

 

As if the sun were missing and retroactively replaced by a

 

blazeless secondary moon, having no other purpose than to

 

give of itself as a scrupulous or functioning disorder. And I

 

am not speaking here of the moon as organic respiration, as

 

a fractal of itself conspiring with suns, but as an isolate

 

technical seduction attempting to burn inside itself, casting

 

in its wake a riddle of novae and spectrums.

 

 

But if we look at the formation of stars, and mollusks, and

 

cells, we see the interminable hypnotic, the spiral of

 

burning glances, always suggesting by rotation kinetic

 

perpetuity. The understanding here is that the frontal

 

personality is always reaffirmed by the material paradigm

 

as a separable mechanics. And this separable mechanics

 

can be discerned in Descartes or Julius Caesar always

 

operant at a plane where energy erupts as obvious

 

misnomer. Where the clause reacts subduction by

 

subduction according to its substance which generates

 

as result, a requisite quantity or weight. According to the

 

West quantity or weight is repeatable as history, as a

 

Mechanics of didactic armory. A state of being always

 

operable through conflict, through the mesmerism which

 

coils and re-coils thought as a devastating violence.

 

 

Within the Western psyche human worth is summoned

 

through conflict. through the clashing of fragments across

 

the ozone. History then accrues as the perfect cholera of

 

density, so that its necessity transpires through heaps of

 

bodies which configures in the rational mind as honed

 

embryos in the breathing. So every detail is counted

 

according to mesmerized biography, according to the

 

minutia which condones the fate of  the teeming frontal

 

portion; according to its mass, to its contorted geometrical

 

ascendance, understood as a conquering plan or kelvin.

 

 Space then takes on substance as a conquered proportion,

 

followed by law as racial mimicry, and the result is the

 

prior 7 centuries deduced to the flaws in the Euro-centric

 

confine. Within its laws it defies the recognition of its

 

 limits, looking at other pronouncements with in-grained

 

dis-recognition.

 

 

Conversely, the communal, that which associates the whole

 

with the part, can never carry as its paradigm a-priori

 

injury or discomfort. Thus, the lemur, and the verdet of

 

the macaw is simultaneous with the endogenous. Therefore,

 

matter cannot be contained as sterilization by plinth, by

 

manipulated allotment or border, this being the core of

 

Asiatic endogeny, and by extension, Africa, with all its

 

stunning oral kingdoms. Thus, Africa, within the prior

 

mentioned confine remains the food from the coiling

 

leper’s tree. So the derma at the darkened leper’s tree can

 

never be properly assessed by plinths, by a strictly numeric

 

or technical embodiment. And so its derma darkens and

 

smolders at the root of the Descartian technical tree. The

 

West can never address such smoldering, never capable

 

of imbibing its laws of the unobservable. It can only

 

address the pylon as a cataract of weighing, as if its gross

 

recognition were the reason for its standing. In other words,

 

observational bounty which no longer lives by originatory

 

breathing or fire. It is simply an object which concurs with

 

the notions which extend through archaeological

 

biographics, a biographics whose parturition is only

 

capable of that which post-dates the energies of Moorish

 

Andalusia. I’m speaking of the era of 1498, of 1533. Of

 

Course, these are arbitrary dates which burn in the

 

European sensibility as superior conduction. Neural quanta

 

wizens, and the elements are stamped with a

 

monochromatic optical seal. What Grosseteste

 

thought, what Roger Bacon compounded through that

 

thought became suspect, and was surreptitiously soldiered

 

away by a Dominican order whose efforts conformed to

 

power as piacular achievement. Grosseteste and Bacon,

 

transmitters of dangerous evolments, were not unlike

 

Moorish cellular arks, transgressing divides, sailing to the

 

port of tremendums. Under the Italian, or subsequent

 

Renaissance, Mali and Timbuktu become more and more

 

as the opprobrium absorbed in the color of the thorn bush

 

of the Christos. And we know that the Christos implies a

 

trenchant separation between what is approved and what is

 

dis-engendered. This in turn becomes a malignant

 

recognition of a penteconter, a galley, with its sails artfully

 

structured according to visually threaded cadavers.

 

 

Yet how can this galley take in the ice fields, the wildebeest

 

optics, the spontaneous hexagramatics of the servals? Here

 

I’m simply inscribing a lack which fails at inclusion, not

 

only the summed gargantuan of what I’ll call the balletics

 

of the ozone, but at the spillage of the sky vertically

 

exhaling as a burning supra-physical raga. Perhaps one

 

could compare this raga to the fumes from the confounding

 

glimpses of the Pharonic wails of Pakistani ragas. Ragas

 

which spin by means of phosphenic confoundment, like

 

aural spiraling through a macrocosmic ozone. And from its

 

mystery derives fever, a great pyrolatry of charisma.

 

 

In this sense one can never engender sterility, or create by

 

Its absence a treatise on accrued and culpable voids. As if

 

Such voids could be defined and rendered palpable within

 

an exteriorized decalcomania. A decalcomania drawn in the

 

manner of a separable recognition, structured according to

 

seedless invictas.

 

 

Let me say this, the person remains his, or her own

 

concomitant experiment. In the cellular ground there exists

 

galactic neural depth, as an a-priori balance anterior to

 

suns. And it is the the nature of the anterior to inculcate the

 

totalic, which includes suns, and planes, and mysteies. For

 

if  Descartes were capable of weighing an image in his

 

neural hollows, he would be prone to a privacy where

 

Breton enlivened a verbal proto-hieroglyphics, an ignited

 

sand where savor flares up as bluish irregularity through

 

quanta. The latter remaining a paradigm non-attributable

 

to personality, to a palpability which fuses with the

 

exhaustion of the provinces. Breton signals a zone where

 

the ground no longer merges with ground, where an

 

integral voltage consumes all prior thinking by means

 

of incandescent slippage.

 

 

When Miro configures suns which explode, the by-product

 

remains as fount or interior origin. A fire which consumes

 

from inconspicuous arcane, always living in the cell as a

 

molten which transfixes functions. As someone like Leiris

 

intuitively attests, the nerves invisibly resonate in what the

 

Dogon understands as collective or spiritual genetics.

 

Within such a view each prosthetic of the technical begins

 

taking on the aura of vanishment so as to allow invisibly

 

gathered bodies to aviate through the uranian by means of

 

intuitive cartographics. Because the cells spin, turbulence

 

engenders the open. As if the body had become vapor

 

suffused by the vocables of anterior navigation, so that

 

kinesis invigors like a pouring of rays from Sirius B.

 

 

Saying this, I can do no more than build on the sodium

 

which insists on itself, which understands itself as mean

 

over and beyond the engendered. Over and beyond the

 

chaos inscribed on the horizontal soil, which now calls for

 

an energy over and beyond the zodiac, where a neutron

 

semantics is transpiring.
