pedal steel on the night line
intertext overdrive, context free

I have not replied to him, nor to any of you, for that matter. So now I am replying to you to inform you that I have not replied to him. I don't know what to tell him. I am dreaming of a steel guitar engagement, I am high on a peak in Darien. In Tokyo 20 years ago, I was reading George Steiner, After Babel, but I stopped at The Hermeneutic Turn. So I have wondered all this time what that was. Turning and turning in the widening gyre, fahrenheit 451 in the Borghesian labyrinth Eco of manuscripts aflame, Malleus Maleficarum, vanity, vanity, all is vanity. Then out jumps Rick Derringer with that Rock. And. Roll. Hoochie Koo. Come on mamma, light my fuse and Sean Connery nodding sagely, ever the Scot, Duns Scotus, Origen, the desert fathers, incubus, succubus, incunabula consumed by fire, the library at Alexandria, Justine in the failing light, Coptic sext, prime and vespers in the courtyard, dark coffee, hashish, and the turn we took then, was it hermeneutic? Is that what it was all about? Gadamer huddled under the Reich. Heiddeger, Heisenberg. All these fucking Germans. Nietzsche like a dog hearing silences beyond the human range. What would I tell him? That Nietzsche was mad? Kafka merely angry? And what about Thomas Mann, his brooding Buddenbrooks dissecting the complacent burghers, perhaps unwittingly urging Jung to descend (on the third day) into the dark and atavistic recesses of the human heart, if heart there was in it. That is to say. And in Tokyo dreaming was I borne into this, novice to all and everything, tabula rasa, in flagrante delicto, I have the right to an attorney. Not having one, one was provided, mirabile dictu, and later, much later, driving across New Mexico, leaving Santa Fe in fact, the radio was tuned in sideways to the land of enchantment where once it had given me Hopi elders chanting as the full moon rose majestic and inscrutable over the dreaming desert, but this time, only several days ago now, was going gimme the beat boys to free my soul, I wanna get lost in your rock and roll, and drift away...

Until a minute ago, I had no photos. I still have no photos to speak of. I don't even have a camera. But all these people were linking to "my photos." It was embarassing. It's still embarassing. But I'm used to that.
