I’ve long been a fan of this human being’s work. This is not unlike other pieces by minourakentaro. I can’t see anything else here but a person’s skull exploding from the backside.

How interesting: iPhone’s autosuggestion for “years” was “tears.” The obvious reason, for it, perhaps another for us.

Samuel Beckett

Novelist, playwright, poet. He was certainly known in his time but little understood. His voice, questions, insight are with us still a hundred years. If we make it another hundred, Beckett will still be ahead of us.

Happy Birthday.

From his Malone Dies:
“Words and images run riot in my head, pursuing, flying, clashing, merging, endlessly. But beyond this tumult there is a great calm, and a great indifference, never really to be troubled by anything again… All I want now is to make a last effort to understand, to begin to understand, how such creatures are possible.”

“Boarded a train to take my memories back, make up for time that I have lost. I’ll never know if I’m delusional, I just believe that I am not. I’m gonna work for my sanity, give it everything I’ve got.”
— CO “Time Forgot”


When asked as a boy what was his favorite pastime, Max Ernst replied “Looking.”

inparenth “In Parentheses,” New York’s upcoming underground literary, graphic, mix’d media & poetics magazine. I’m happy & honor’d to be included in their latest issue.

They snatch’d some of my latest work. Get a copy. Tell them what you think.

Lorenzo Semple, III 3/27/1923 - 3/28/2014

Lorenzo turned 91 yesterday.  I’ve just learned he died this morning.

There’s nothing to say but I thank him, praise him & hold close our conversations & correspondence.
