23 January 2014

Rae Armantrout [Charles Bernstein]

Experimental Design

To test for consciousness,
ask the machine,

What is wrong
with this picture”

A potted plant
where a keyboard should be.

Ask yourself,
Would a cat be frightened?”

Event Horizon

A street person? —
unshaven, haggard —
in a button-down
and a full black skirt.

If an image could talk,
what would it say?

A man in a skirt participates.

A man in a skirt
is never alone?


We are never alone.

We are men in skirts.

I am.

I draw attention
to myself.

To make a black hole,
one must concentrate.
