Remembered lines from Heriberto Yepez's NY reading:
Writing is always authoritarian and the authorities of language always use silence. That's why we look at the audience when we read.
Choose your ideal dictatorship.
Human poetry I would define as the strange situation where half the page is missing.
Most writing is Spam.
The relationship between the USA and the rest of the world is exactly like the relation between author and reader.
Every time writing ends a reader is born.
