A Window into Consciousness

December 31, 2007


The Night.  The Person.  The Place. Viewing the ragged horizon from the fifth floor of the Building. The dark draws in and the lit windows pick out the name zigzag fashion.  A company, ViKor, is spelt out.

One Two

December 18, 2007


A wrinkled box of water.  I into a painted corner unlock the blue clatter of the tin.  On this is the island on which I live where birds fly high nothing survives the four winds into which the dust motes speed like the red nailed barbs of the cactus animals that society has bent on pasteurisation.  The verb denotes […]

Postmodernism – definitions

The Ownership of the Actual

December 10, 2007


Is it true?  Is objectivity a matter of who owns it? What kind of world does a flea die into? Objectivity says: this is a world of rational limit. And it is – to rationality.  But a flea is not a rational being. It is fundamental to things that they are ‘wild’. Of course.  And the rationality of […]

What doesn’t exist

December 9, 2007


I am inclined to say that the world exists because of what doesn’t exist.  Yet how can what is borrow from what isn’t? Since it is not as though it actually rests on such ethereal foundations.  Like a rock afloat on air.
