A kind of a "dangerous supplement", marked, scarred on a body, post-orgasmically, always, already in anticipation of (a) crisis OR for a desert avec 'agape'. Mindb(l)ogg(l)ing Noise. "Avalanche, would you share my last pursuit?" (Baudelaire)

Ex-cuse me mi(si-ni)ster Eagle-ton

'...Even so, this hardly excuses a prominent literary theorist perpetrating a sentence like 'The in-choate in-fant ab-original para-subject cannot be theorized as functionally completely frozen in a world where teleology is schematized into geo-graphy.' In infant school, breaking up words with hyphens was a way of understanding them better; here, it is a silly affectation which has the opposite effect...People who write like this are not even interested in being understood'
Terry Eagleton, After Theory, pp. 76-7
