May 26, 2008: Kenney on modern aesthetics - 0 Comments

". . .

Occasional volcanoes in the parlor, yawn. Arterial
Blood weeping the walls, rising above the ankles
Curdles in the drains and pupils. Ad nauseam! It kills
Sensation in the extremities. And don't come off all teary

On me, now. No more Thus Spake Zarathustra. No big titanium yurt
Over heaven. No more swoopy blue yondering wing-magics--
That's finished. We don't feel for thingamajigs
Anymore. Clear your desk. And tell the engineer he's fired."

- Richard Kenney, 'Aesthetics Update' from The One-Strand River, 2008.
