this week

selah asked us to fill up five pages using one sentence. here is my sentence. eleni's suggestion for this week was to write a poem whose knowledge is contained entirely within itself. and then an addendum: write a poem whose knowledge of itself is contained outside of the poem. i think this comes from ed dorn's 1977 chat where he talks about external poems: " i'm talking about the lattice of reality operating on you completely. in other words, you're to have as little to do with the poem as possible."

other than these things, i've been reading nietzsche and taking notes about him: "there is nothing internal to which something external would not correspond," and so on. i've been writing very little.
