Futurist thought for the day


from here, there’s a blindness.

The side-heaped chasm that will swallow all our present

blinds us to the normal sun that may be imagined

shining calmly away on the far side of it, for others

in their ordinary day. A day to which all our portraits,

ideals, revolutions, denim and deshabille

are quaintly heartrending…
