give me a second

a line beginning "he weren't" or "it weren't"

effusive cloud, unknown relationship, negative connotations signed (up)
into something obvious

explanations and re-explanations of sexual obsessiveness

diatribe against the corporate infiltration of network interstices - phone
messages, icq, download screens, always asking for registration and "email

fury and assassinations of evil governments

:: these are dream-clouds, half-thoughts - i think these through falling
asleep, desperately trying to memorize phrases, trajectories; by the time
morning comes along, it's all over, i've forgotten everything, i end up
hating myself, the ideas are lost forever; i've tensed, i want to throw
out everything, give up; i become hateful; i'm not the person i'm capable
of being; the world seems as much nonsense as the phrases i've lost; whole
books, volumes, theories lost at night; in day-dreaming; napping; all i
end up giving back is the residue; what remains after everything else is
lost; ruins of full speech; ruins of fuller speech

texts which are always mournings for the remainder, remnant; identifica-
tion with abandonment, depression, the inchoate

retreating into sexuality; trancetext; theoretic; ghost and emanant

it was at the tip of my tongue; it's almost completely; just a second,
just a second; wait, i've almost got it; it'll come to me

it never returns; it's lost in neural columns; it's always already incom-

one is never present; full speech is never emanant

hold on; just a second; wait, no that's not it; it's really bothering me;
it's at the tip of my tongue; just a minute


i have it
        it's never really gone away
        it just came back to me
      it changes everything
      hold it
         here it is
         i knew if i waited long enough
           i could just picture it
           i had most of it right away
           i could just see it

             gorge bash lies eaten and rolled over by snomobile treads
             from thick moose-drivn belts cutting nto his eyes; george

             can't do vilent kiling and damag; blacks tair open skin;
             whites pull out organs and slash them; reds cut open heart;
             blues stuff asshole without love and sharp boulders; yellows
