Analysis|of|Bad|Day

Too|many|people|die|in|fragile|ecosystems|and|repetitive|disasters.|Some,|
but|not|these,|can|be|traced|to|human|intervention|-|global|warming,|even|
some|droughts,|certainly|erosions,|pcb|contaminations,|etc.|The|continuous|
Indonesian|shaking|is|deadly|and|fascinating;|one|imagines|whole|contin-|
ents|shifting|into|the|ocean,|San|Andreas|faulting|west|coast|California.|
What's|cool|in|print|constructs|bad|dreams|in|the|real.|We're|sliding|into|
the|abyss.|Disasters|make|poor|and|always|suspect|artwork.|Pepy's|diary|
records|the|Great|Fire|of|London,|plague.|Defoe|and|Camus|wrote|plague;|in|
another|form|it's|all|over|the|early|Ballard.|Things|from|within,|without|
cause,|Chernobyl,|not|a|visible|cause|certainly,|not|the|hammer-and-nail|
variety.|We|erupt|from|within.|The|||bars|isolate|the|language|of|science|
and|we're|not|saved|by|the|therapeutic|of|description,|words|and|people|
go.|Work|descends|into|the|hell|that|gives|it|strength,|devours|it.|This|
is|a|'good|piece'|on|earth|gone|bad.
