Barack Hussein Obama


There was this particular avenue of thinking in formation, a response to Jon Cotner and Andy Fitch's fine book Ten Walks/Two Talks: reverberations clanging off of Thoreau's essay "Walking," onto the etymology of "saunter," Bruce Chatwin is there and his book The Songlines, through to the polyvocality of Plato, conversational overlap, cues and mishearings via J R, shifting to Bob Perelman's poets talks, and there's a conversation, half-remembered and re-arising in variations, with Jake Kennedy on a poetics of the lateral, which is ringing off Blaser's "The Practice of Outside."

This, though, will have to wait; all thoughts have stopped at: THIS.
