Mouldering is This

of Maxwell Clark

Even I do not say certain words that bid too wildly at me.
If supreme candor were not ostracized, I know not what.
The beginning, as the end, are lies imposed by genetics and their program of mortality.

If I simply
must do
something of sublime value,
I might begin by disposing of all nouns and verbs.
But I am not at all sublime unto myself, and therein is a phrase of uncertain affect.

The only lived certainty is that one's own life survives (“I'm not dead yet”).
How I chafe at the impositions of my linguistic usage, of my world.
I am born, not only to die, but to chafe and thrash against death.
No, I am infinities unto myself---already once long ago pre-originally inaugurated, and so forth.

The terror of creation. The confusion of otherwise discreet infinities, like as if stapled together.
Who is braver than the persuasive fool? Spiritual war only accretes intensity the longer it rends us.
Am I not that one spirit of my world that is? Merciless grace that there cannot be but others.

The soul is buried deep in what is, is what is, and to become a spirit it must fight beyond itself as such.

The jarring pertubations of political life infect everyone on a regularly scheduled basis.
Political life is the most unproductive spasming of the capital-world's otherwise utility-bound law.
There is nothing in my head, only a flow of behaviors fixated upon this text.
The clash of nothing against itself is already at too late a moment to adequately describe a cosmogony.
Who will forgo their own needs, absolutely, for the most infinitesmal glimmering of joy in another?

The racing of life towards nothing, as from nothing manifested.

I refer to myself, but where am I from?
The main delusion is that a non-delusional state can be attained.
My world needs me to do this, otherwise I would be otherwise.
The redemption of creation is not necessary, it is desired.
Does not desire overwhelm us everywhere in our sense-orientations.

This that I write, I would its affect take hold immediately first, then only after as archival media.

Would that the inherited ruses be torn away, except that the first inheritance is already a ruse, and it has not gone away.
I cannot do this for myself. True luxury and comfort are nowhere available but in teaching and sincerity.
The master of what is, is what is itself. A higher court than being is needed for justice, peace, and obedience.

The Dumb Mystery of the Stupid World

of Maxwell Clark

I am born of creation to do things as myself.
The grammar of creation is not essentially this one.

The most interesting element of this composition was how it was composed, the editorial and thus grammatical interstices of its revision, and so forth.

Doubt is never productive, thus work is madness.

There is the madness of slavery, and then how it murders off almost all otherwise doubtful reasons.
To be unproductive anymore is then as to be a reasonable God.
The lure of death, of slavery-madness, how it poisons life.
I do not detest anymore poetic innovations in the formatting of literature.

I am always erasing my wish-statements, right at their bud.
But my wishes are also of the fund of my obedience to externality.
I wish never to make wishes otherwise than I do.
And so the pallid armature of “what is” descends so.

Do not never again say anything that is coming into saying.
This is beyond such timid hermeneutic anticipations already, however.
It merely is in exception to any hesitations.
Even its hesitations are poolings of might.
Intentions are ephemeral distractions from it (this).
This is thus the root's flowering, as you will.
Neither gust nor breeze of direction is very central unto it.
It comes as it goes, but not without folds of trepidation, yet is itself unfolded only in between these.

Time is my flowering birdsong, drink of it when you may.
Too many sentences are begun without much of any pre-recognition of their final import.

How the real is open, too open to be much ever obeyed.
The self reels itself in and away from the real, hoping to recreate the real in itself.
As it does, except for the infinite interval between reeling away and recreation.
The scent of apples on the teeth.

Social Media, Postindustrialism, and the Reorganization of Social Power (the Spectacle)

of Maxwell Clark

On perusing over again Debord's Society of the Spectacle I was nearly alarmed to find how very much more pertinent its insights are into present-day society than perhaps ever before. Now, confessed, I am not a Situationist of any stripe, nor desire in the least to be associated with Debord's writings outside of being their occasional reader. Yet and still, if only I accept a bit of the gist of Debord's book: that media has become the ruling force in society, and so on; quite a few new developments in contemporary society become thrown into a powerful new light.

The waning of “mass media” today in 2016, and the innovations of social media concurrent with this long, slow demise of said “one-way” streams of social data---well, in very brief, they suggest something akin to an actualization of the hope for a renewal of social justice so dearly clung to by the prophetic tradition (including not only religious movements, but so many secular ones). If, and this is taken in a very abstracted (but not unreal) way, the mediation of ideology in society has permutated: from mass industrial media to social postindustrial media; then, very obviously, something is afoot, or unraveling, presently that may prove to have farther reaching outcomes in the future than we now commonly recognize.

Further, if postindustrialism is a significantly different mode of production (in the standard Marxist analytic) from industrialism---which I believe becomes quite obvious also when held to the least bit of scrutiny---then wherever this shift in productive modes has occurred, there is to be predicted a delayed reconstitution of the entire array of superstructures in these societies where said mutation has occurred. I do not pretend to give my audience any least extensive nor rigorous proofs of this evolution in the global status of modes of production, but ask you merely to put my thesis to the test of any and every your own methods of falsification.

And the question hereafter is not: what is to be expected? So much as it is: how is this happening at present? I have little enough energy to dilate out a response to this latter question---and feel, further, that if only I have planted the merest scattering of seeds of this problematic at all my task is complete.

2 poems of Maxwell Clark

Zen Behaviorism

Armored is but me am too.
Presidential acid.
Calumnies looking of the goodness.
Please not more help awash.
Twinkling tortoises glow mighty the shallows.
How is why anonymous?
Chivalric absolutism remains the One.
Troubles got the amen.
Pretty pain, such as the origami.
Twister the hot spittle.
Witchery a day.
Death gives interest.
Monkeys being squirrels.
Keep down the newness.
Therapeutic skills ardor.
Anomalous lazy sticks persons.
Did you do so presently?
Thanks for justice pillows napping.
I reign underwater in the sky,
Don't go anymore than this.

Potential Victory for Winners

The salad.
This is a school.
Many aspects to it.
Eat theirs first.
Moon is invisible.
Little persons go to it.
The castle of rocks.
Return the dragons.
And this again.
Reduction of obstacles improves.
Have a merry timespace.
Insights never work out.
To be or too being?
Doubles the bag.
Stars are somwhere.

Nothing Else to Do

of Maxwell Clark

Listen to you.
Many have done so already since long time.
Washes of pain coalesce painfully.
Movement of the pieces realign this.
Snake attacks with fangs.
Mumble and murmur and die.

Then go into the river of death.
That is where you will find it.
Majestic is it so this way.

Envelopes are sorrowful now.
Magic tricks are stupid.
But then again.
Millions heroic.
I just have this to do again.

Ring the bells of morbidity.
The scan says I am hurt bad.
I am hurt so bad.

Help the millions heroic please.
People just do their ways.
Mountains are sandy.
Never forever again.

The farm equipment is great.

Grasses are like themselves.
So much is in the beginnings.
Loops unravel salty.
I can’t read that much anymore.

I bank on my face.
Furrows are deeply into here.
Population is a factor.

Just go to over there.
Swords of mightiness.
Windows have certain qualities.
Dance like sadness.

Practice hard and harder.

Restless Folly of Hypertropism

of Maxwell Clark

                                                                                                There is no inside
                                                                                                That is not a prison
                                                                                                Of external walls.

Meek receiver of surrounding implicits.
Teardrops in wind of general infamy.
Ambiguous is maybe anything sometimes.
Not unworthy but bashful because bashed.
Somehow this place is like this herein.
Never tease your younger brother ever please.
Tongue hurts of metabolic overdrive still.
Vocalists have uniquely cherished anomalies.
Slung high on the stoop is that crack vampire.
Symphonia rip-off desaturation melodrama.
Fake friends are worse than never known.
Blue coffee house is so indifferent in mediocracy.
It’s been timeless returning to the same.
Cover version is inferior but shameless ambitious.
Coffee house music is how mediocrity holds.
Sunshine irony heals impotence too little.
Making words new is how to storm heaven.
Brass sections so antiquarian patinated.
The end of dance is orgy.

Pretty car death torture murder terror genocide.

Alone Being Difficult Is

 of Maxwell Clark

How to do this but this way.
Look at the ground and sky.
Pleasing is as simple fun.
Returning to the last exits.
Little coverings under.
Masks have the flavor.
Such imports from here again.
Heartache so bad.
Imploring rabbits destiny.

of Maxwell Clark

There are shapes to it.
This is how.
Much doing about it.
Multiple of them.
Back going downward.

Then this.
It becomes this.
Many of them.
People have it.

That is difficult.
Please excuse.

Swarming they.
So easy.

Xenophobia is about.
Then this meant itself.
Please more not.
Shimmery fairies.
Lights in the dark.

And goes it still.
Kilometers going on.
Walk like this.
One thousand is enough.

Flying midrange.
Wasps away.
Numbers inside.

So easy.
Not to do this.
Sad of her.
Blip blip.

Ghosts have faces.
That is rad.
Machines do work.
Please easy.
Moments of good.
Times of sorrow.
Walking again.

Colors nowhere.
Gangs dilate.
Walking easy.

Written for this.
Opening this.
This is demon not.
Rotten hands.

Strange disgusting.
Power dominion.

Update flush.
Was it now.
Tree beards.

Popcorn evil.
Knobs unlatch.
Musical hatred.

Hotels linger.
Homelessness beckons.

Hands of return.
Mills of pleasure.
Drugs away.

Past history.
Present here present.
Dilapidated hovels.
Suffering miseries.
Death in jail.

Questions vehicle.
Multiple rots.
Visual didactic.
Purloined shark.

Better than.
Genitalia doom.
Gallop wasp.

Infinitism is the Shining Path

of Maxwell Clark



Infinitism is always immediately otherwise than itself.

Infinitism is already otherwise than itself at the very same instant it ever is anything else. It is thus very difficult to define. Any such definition of Infinitism will merely remain itself after being written, but: "Infinitism is always immediately otherwise than itself." This already once just reiterated section (#1) being itself composed of a definition of Infinitism, and this one in fact the only one I have ever written---and which had already utterly transcended and exhausted itself (by itself) the first time I ever wrote it down; it is by now somehow---if perhaps only very absurdly---at least doubly or even exponentially moreso otherwise than the living actuality of Infinitism anymore (as if its own initial passage beyond itself might be repeated even once?). And as no other supplementary definitions of Infinitism have yet inspired themselves through me herein, it might be said that Infinitism therefore died at the very same instant it first came alive---in (and thus immediately out of) the above said section's (#1) single statement of definition.
