When the cast invades the streets tonight, a new epoch will begin. So: enjoy this pain, too.

1. TO BISECT AN APPARATUS IS TO ANALYZE THE FUNCTIONS OF ITS FORMS

The idea of making a film about your suicide thunders down the millennia…

2. TO ANALYZE THE FUNCTIONS OF A FORM IS TO DISCOVER POTENTIAL REFORMULATIONS OF THE INTENDED FUNCTIONS

The protagonist is butchered: his skin swells with air like a bubble.

3. TO REFORMULATE INTENDED FUNCTIONS IS TO PROPOSE NEW ACTIONS WITHIN THIS SET OF FUNCTIONS

He is split from the palate down to the sternum, shudders radiating throughout his body: the poison bores through his stomach and gives him diarrhea.

4. TO PROPOSE NEW ACTIONS WITHIN A SET OF FUNCTIONS IS TO RESET THE TERMS OF FUNCTIONING WITHIN A STRUCTURE

Suicide seems the simplest thing he can think of: meanwhile he enters a movie theater.

IF:
1. A STRUCTURE IS A CONSEQUENCE OF RULES WHICH GOVERN A SERIES OF PHYSICAL AND/OR INTANGIBLE RELATIONS

In the brief intervals between the spasms in his entrails, lo, in alternating sequence, the huge colorful intervals of the sponsors’ commercials.

& 2. WE UNDERSTAND MATERIAL AS REPRESENTATIVE OF THE REGIME OF PHYSICAL RELATIONS

Refrigerators, toothpastes, smiling cheeks.

& 3. WE UNDERSTAND CULTURE AS REPRESENTATIVE OF THE REGIME OF INTANGIBLE RELATIONS

We meet in the screening room and there we watch the city, poor in its hour of nakedness, terrifying as all nakedness is.

& 4. WE FORMULATE MATERIALS WITHIN A SET OF CULTURAL FORMATIONS

A scorched earth whose blaze, extinguished this evening, or millennia ago,

& 5. WE FORMULATE CULTURE WITHIN A SET OF MATERIAL FORMATIONS

In an unending circle of rose-colored ruins, whitening coals and bones, scaffoldings bleached by rain and then burnt by new sun.

THEN:
IN ORDER TO BISECT, ANALYZE, REFORMULATE, ACTIVATE, &/OR REFUNCTION A CULTURE

Maybe the bomb has gone off without our knowing, and the word has already ended:

WE MUST:
1. DISSECT THE GIVEN MATERIAL FORMS & THE GIVEN IDEOLOGIES WITHIN, UPON, & FOR WHICH THEY ARE CONSTRUCTED.

But silently, slipped in against the light of the sunset.

2. UNFURL ITS ENTRAILS & MAP THEIR CONTOURS LIKE SHORELINES, LIKE ESCAPE ROUTES

A shadow operates the camera in this age.

3. IMMOBILIZE THEM (NOT DRAWN & QUARTERED AS WITH MARIE ANTOINETTE, BUT FROZEN AS WITH WALT DISNEY -- THE BLOOD NOT DRIPPING & SPLASHING IN THE STREETS, BUT GATHERED IN THE GUTTERS, FROZEN IN POOLS)

A quick shot of a pistol. And: “The End”.

IT IS HERE, IN THE REFLECTIONS, THAT WE CAN PRODUCE IMAGES OF NEW POTENTIALITIES, & ELECTROCUTE THEM SO THAT THEY, TOO, MAY FLOW THROUGH THE WORLD AGAIN.

When the cast invades the streets tonight, a new epoch will begin. So: enjoy this pain, too.

THE BROTHER OF THE LEECH WAS WALKING IN THE FOREST, SLOWLY...

The idea of making a film about your suicide thunders down the millennia…

THE MOUTH IS ALWAYS DRY BEFORE A DELUGE...

The protagonist is butchered: his skin swells with air like a bubble.

IN SLOW MOTION / IN LOOPS OF TIME

He is split from the palate down to the sternum, shudders radiating throughout his body: the poison bores through his stomach and gives him diarrhea.

WHAT IS TODAY TO AN ATEMPORAL CULTURE?

Suicide seems the simplest thing he can think of: meanwhile he enters a movie theater.

A LAMB-EATING VULTURE WAS ENGAGED IN COMBAT IN THE SKY, SLOWLY…

In the brief intervals between the spasms in his entrails, lo, in alternating sequence, the huge colorful intervals of the sponsors’ commercials.

THE TEETH ARE ALWAYS SHARPER BEFORE A FEEDING…

Refrigerators, toothpastes, smiling cheeks.

WHEN A BLAST RE-SETS A (CULTURAL) CONTEXT (AGAIN)...

We meet in the screening room and there we watch the city, poor in its hour of nakedness, terrifying as all nakedness is.

WHAT IS PLACE TO AN AMATERIAL CULTURE?

A scorched earth whose blaze, extinguished this evening, or millennia ago,

THE SHIP IN DISTRESS FIRED THE CANNON TO GIVE THE ALARM; BUT IT SANK, SLOWLY...

In an unending circle of rose-colored ruins, whitening coals and bones,

THE EYE ALWAYS RETRACTS INTO THE SOCKET BEFORE A GOUGING...

scaffoldings bleached by rain and then burnt by new sun.

WHEN EXPLOSIONS ARE SO SLOW WE CAN’T PERCEIVE THEM...

Maybe the bomb has gone off without our knowing, and the word has already ended:

WHAT IS CULTURE TO AN IMMATERIAL TIME?

But silently,

CHILDREN CHASED AFTER & THREW STONES AT HER (AS IF SHE WERE A BLACKBIRD)

slipped in against the light of the sunset.

HAVE YOU EVER HAD A WINDOW TO YOUR OWN SKULL?

A shadow operates the camera in this age.

WHAT IS CULTURE TO AN ATEMPORAL WORLD?

A quick shot of a pistol. And: “The End”.

A QUICK SHOT OF A PISTOL. AND: “THE END”.
