Pedagogies for the Obsessed
Pedagogies for the Obsessed.
“For those not in love, there’s law
to rule, to regulate, to rectify”
NO! Man IS an island! Start with that
as fundamental. Let Mr. Donne’s
sentiment be seen as achievement, not
the given. Everything will fall into place.
Make good sense. The bell tolls.
The USE of Force (vios)
Those who cry Peace! Peace! when
there is no Peace compound the overall
problem with their denial, cover-up,
hallelujah & amen, amen.
What would I do with out my force-the-issue
“Do it, or else.” I tell my students.
And they have to. to please me.
Pedagogy for the Oppressed.
A presumption, sure—assuming you feel
oppressed. You may not. More’s the pity.
Pedagogies for the Depressed, maybe.
The Four Seasons—no negative stigma
“We spend a lot of time hearing what
Sam’s trying to do and not very much
time doing it.”
I could force the issue but then I’d be
forcing the issue “Do what I say” (here’s
why: it’ll be good for you in the long run)
Every woman adores a Fascist, The boot
in the face, the brute Brute heart of
a brute like you.
I rip-off Sylvia Plath. I overstate my case
I am large: I contain pulchritude
Anarchy and Chaos—
factored in, structured in,
part of the plan but still:
anarchy & chaos no doubt:
space for emergent phenomena,
rolling away the rock of authority.
(Apocalypse revealing concealing:
annihilating arches, structure, purpose,
plan, aim, goal, measureable objectives)
and look: revelation.—mothers of invention. .
Possibility? Potential? Potency? Power?
Who’s to say?
Fiction fashions fact and faction
Authors authorizing authority authoritatively
Origins originating originality originally.
Renewable resource Can ‘t force it, damnit.
No caesarean short-cut. Full term labor.
Silence is Golden & Noise is the Mother of New.
Gospel truth but who can handle the truth?
Slips and slides & what a mess it is: oops oh
damn hurts like hello I’m not kidding.
