mechanic writing

This post's poem was created in the same mechanical/procedural manner as the poem INCIDENT. Which means, it was created by scrambling and scrambling a long free-write to see what conjunctions and coincidences were created. Then that was edited down into the form you see. Along the way text was added. I like this method because it is partly chance partly intention. In doing this, there was not a clear picture of what the poem was about per se. I was guided by a vague idea of a process, an undoing which was also an emergence...


Masturbate or forever,
not beginning.
Punishment everyone holds
must be respected.
Not a beginning,
Forget the difference.
The past emerges,
flowing up hill.
Never stops,
shoots into space:
No more monolith.
Take this judgment and be
Free again
and free means:
