Make text. Milk and Kahlua. I sing slow and soft. I sing the word “mulch.”
I sing the words “culture shock.” I shake like a cocktail tray.
re: Mockingbird | Sequence of Events
Mockingbird: a Cold War CIA operation meant to co-opt the American media. Mocking-
bird: don’t say a word. Mockingbird: take edge, make talk, muckrake, at meek. Mocking-
bird: murky grid, interlock, low-key. Mockingbird, divide the text into blocs (top down,
bottom’s up). Mockingbird: talking bird, talk talk talk.
Sequence of Events: sectors, directorates, experiments on “me.” Read the tenses simul-
taneously. Speaking, spoken, spine, soft. Sequence, murky, spy, meekest. Read: on/off
theory of consciousness. Read: on/off the record. The word “Order” and the word
“Agency.” Insert “I”: ultimate insider. “I”: monolithic conspiracy.
Synaesthesia: one type of operation evokes the sensation of another. See the word “syringe”
and feel “pinprick.” Syringe, sensation, grid sing. To sing is to confess, upon interrogation.
That’s a sinister definition: come clean, urgents news, realtime quotes, me, me, me, me. Sing
into the mike. The minister is leading the purge.
