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)

Journalistic Poetry, the never-ending trauma of history or the infinite modes of language


From Phileleftheros:

Αμέριμνα τα ζώα λίγο πριν από την εκτέλεση. Μόνο ο θρήνος των κτηνοτρόφων και η ξαφνική πολυκοσμία στον άλλοτε ήσυχο τόπο τους, τα ξαφνιάζει...

For alternative version replace the word "zwa" with "paidia" (you can also add, for extra contrast in the dramatic effect, "pezoun anemela stis alanes / sta xwrafia", "kthnotrofwn" with "megalwn" and add "apo ton kataktiti / zigo" after polikosmia.
Lessons towards narrating disaster(s) in the history of Cyprus: Never change the mode, the structure or the vocabulary apart from the variable entities. Always let a tear drop and ask for the cameras.
Guide on how to mourn: Hit your chest three times, raise your hands up in the sky keep them up for three seconds, grab your forehead with your hands and bend over for three seconds, and again, and one, and a two and a three... (choreography of mourning). For additional tragic effect you can utter the following words changing the variable according to the situation:
Απαναγία μου, το γιο μου, το γιο μου, το γιο μου
The word "γιο" is the variable and can be replaced by "tsouroua", "aftokinito", "mixeraki tou frape" etc.

The execution of the black sheep (and then comes the white)

@ alexandra: enough to keep me away from the unorgasmic kant-hegelian alliance. No, honestly didn't take more than 45 mins max. Not bad ah?

alexandra said...

not bad. i spent 45 minutes writing a post that culminated in a picture of a bicycle that's not there, so i s'pose we're even.

I think I saw one of them in Wales. Didn't seem too unhappy, save for the fact it was teetering at the edge of a cliff!

alexandra said...

noulli, you talking about one of the sheep, or one of the women?

Demetris said...

Women of course. Why would a Welsh lamb want to waste its afterlife?

@ alexandra:

hard to tell, actually...
