THE QUACKSTER OF NEOISM


[Texts Index]
WASHOUTS AND ALIENS:
I AM KAREN ELIOT, EXOTIC NEOIST POETASTER.
I WAS DRAGGED BY THE 14 AUDIOTAPE MYTHOLOGY TO CATABOLIZE CONFUSION INTO MYTHOLOGY.
WE ARE AT THE END OF TRANSCENDENCE: THE QUACKSTER OF NEOISM IS UNSTOPPABLE.
IT IS MORE THAN ALL OF OUR DESIRES: THE QUACKSTER IS TAOISTIC, IT IS NOT IN THE DICTIONARY.
IT HAS NO DEFINITION AND DOESN'T MEAN ANYTHING SPECIFIC.
IT IS MORE THAN A PURSUIT, IT IS THE INVOCATION OF BABEL.
THE QUACKSTER OF NEOISM IS A SMOKEHOUSE THAT WILL DEIONIZE THE UNDERBELLY OF HISTORY.
IT IS TO SLUMBER ON MEDICINAL DRUGS LIKE A CABINET-MAKING FILM PRODUCER.
IT IS THE VULGAR LIBERTY OF SOMNOLENCE.
THE QUACKSTER OF NEOISM DESTROYS THE MECHANISM OF LOGIC.
IT CREATES CONFUSION AND MAKES CONTROL IMPOSSIBLE. IT IS OPEN TO ALL, ANYBODY CAN DO IT.
IT IS TO BE TESTED ON THE STREETS, IN THE FISH MARKET, IN THE BAKERY, IN JAIL, IN HOSPITAL AND IN ANY PLACE YOU CAN GET IN AND OUT.
I BELIEVE THAT THE QUACKSTER OF NEOISM CREATES A NEW HISTORY, TO RELEASE THE STORMY MIND OF THOSE PRISONERS OF OLD TRADITIONS FOR WHOM THE MOST FRIGHTENING EXPERIENCE OF LIFE IS FREEDOM.
I BELIEVE IN THE END OF TIME, WORK, AND HISTORY.
I BELIEVE IN (CON)TEXTURES.
I BELIEVE IN ANY WORDS CHOSEN AT RANDOM FROM ANY DICTIONARY.
I BELIEVE IN THE CONTINUOUS CREATION OF THE NOW FROM NOTHING WHICH IS CONTINGENT UPON US AT ALL TIMES AND GIVES US A PLACE IN THE UNIVERSE.
I BELIEVE IN COSMIC EGGS AND THEIR CRACKS.
I BELIEVE IN YOU, IN YOUR FEARS, HALLUCINATIONS, HUMOR.
