Resistance (from today and yesterday)


the music, muffled in ancient recordings

made last tuesday

and films burned and faded in acid from my camera

shot two weeks ago

then i stepped in the inks

and the spills of celluloid in bakalite cases decaying:

we reached for no multi-dimensional hyper-space

no over-diversified light spectrums, 

no thousand-pegged color wheels

or spinning deals:

we clung only to the second-nature beating of a heart

mechanical or shrivled

because we wanted our voices hushed!

like a wax cylinder———————-

because we wanted our faces scratched!

like silver gelatin—————

because we wanted our words uneven!

like linotypes——
