Conversations with Dave Brinks PDF E-mail
BERNADETTE MAYER, BILL ZAVATSKY ON VALERY LARBAUD, JOHN SINCLAIR IN CONVERSATION WITH DAVE BRINKS

Brinks:  So here we are at the Tsatsawassa and Kinderhook creeks just behind Bernadette’s house in East Nassau, New York; one of her absolute favorite places to hang out with her dog Hector; and an area frequented by many great birds including the common merganser and the blue heron.

Mayer:  I refuse to answer any questions. (laughter)

Brinks:  One thing I love most about your works Bernadette, and I rarely find this in any other poet’s works, is whenever I’m listening to you read a poem, I often suddenly feel like I’ve beautifully misheard something; but then I discover it’s exactly as you’ve written it.

Mayer:  Yes, I’ve taken care of that. (laughter)

Brinks:  Which leads me to my next question, which is actually my first question; but based on your idea of Utopia, how is our sitting here any different than our non-waking state?

Mayer:  I refuse to answer that question. (laughter)

Megan Volpert Alphabetizes Her Pets PDF E-mail
MORE NEW PETS ALL STARTING WITH B! For those readers of the Corpse who don't have any idea what this is all about, we have nothing to say to you! Only kidding, come back. Megan had the benefit of an excellent education that included knowledge of the alphabet. How many of us can say that? Plus, she read a whole lot of theory by philosophers (in translation) that she is, wisely, ordering by turning the authors into pets. Some sheep, some goats, a couple of chupacabras, an atlantid, you know the routine. So that we may keep her work of metamorphic zoology fresh, we are posting her latest first, which screws with the alphabet somewhat, but favors you, ungrateful reader. Here is a bit of her latest pet, a dude who makes us suspect that all these thinkers May be just devices for Megan's autobiography, spiced with ad hominem slurs.


booth, wayne
apparently these traditional barometers of fact and fiction
do not apply in the anti-gravity martian world of poetics
replaced with flaky underwater labels like confessionalism

BURROUGHS SPEAKS II PDF E-mail

Part Two of Simone Ellis’s fabulous interview with the Master.

Audio Inside


In this segment (recorded shortly after the first in our series, Ejaculating Phallus Hieroglyphic Lesson), WSB and SE are looking at a series of WSB’s paintings. William is talking about the connection of his aesthetic theory of Recognition Art, at work in his larval and green alien paintings, to that of his gun-shot paintings. In the shot-gun paintings, he uses a rifle to blow the begeezis out of a can of paint, resulting in splatters that fly onto the canvas, creating imagery that often reflects something, which was going on in WSB’s consciousness at the time of the blast. Both techniques are subject to the One Time Only rule.

On the Egyptian Hieroglyphic symbol of the Ejaculating Phallus

(pulling his paintings out from stacks, looking for one symbol in particular, which is a recurring motif in both his painting and his writing. He pulls one out for the apprentice, and then another…)

(An) ejaculating phallus. That is for standing up! Giving evidence. An ejaculating prick.
