The air con parked like a small car beneath the window that gives me dirty visions of America. This land aches beneath the weight of its own divided spectacle. Hotel rooms lined with hot buttered pancakes and 42 channel panoramas reflect any shadows from the neighborhood I strolled through this afternoon where every second house was a public auction or unsafe and the local rehab center charity center life center was closing next month. It begs the question, what happened? I saw it chalked upon a battered door today, Viva La Revolucion!! But nobody appeared to be home.
“The affluent society is a society of voyeurs. To each their own kaleidoscope: a tiny movement of the fingers and the picture changes. You can’t lose: two fridges, a mini car, TV, promotion, time to kill, then the monotony of the images we consume gets the upper hand, reflecting the monotony of the action which produces them, the slow rotation of the kaleidoscope between finger and thumb.”
The Revolution of Everyday Life by Raoul Vaneigem
"who talked continuously seventy hours from park to
pad to bar to Bellevue to museum to the Brooklyn Bridge,a lost battalion of platonic conversationalists
jumping down the stoops off fire escapes off windowsills off Empire State out of the moon"- Howl by Alan Ginsberg (1956)
