Tutuguri: The Rite of the Black Sun


And down there it’s as if at the rise of a bitter slope,

of a cruel and desperate heart

who dribbles


turd of black coal

is the only moist place

in that slit of rock

A Funny Torture I Hallucinated the Other Day [Reconstructed from Elder Notebooks] (((of Maxwell Clark)))

“Peering about panoptically is not not reconcilable with the schemata of
Hegel’s weltgeist (?) INCARNATED as the stupid fresh mode or fasces of
production translated across an intervallic extension of periods called
history, rather than spacing.[...]”

Peri-Unintelligible Complexities (((of Maxwell Clark)))

I know not how my more recent crops of essays became so exceedingly

unwieldy in their style, nor how so monstrously technical or

too-difficultly overworked. But it already seems quite assured to me that

they are so. Thus, however, instead of pruning back how over-burdened with

derailing flourishes these essays of mine have become, I, perhaps

The Want of What Is to Be as Such as It Is (((of Maxwell Clark)))

“This is error-making joy, plus a fruitful unthinking, pushing idiocy into
itself as immediacy, except unfaithful to itself already, because of no
