Vision Bender


Vision Bender

Angle-less does despise - it does over emphasize
my physical loss of movement, jailing thy scope
I am groping for room for breath, it does grope

Dangerous eyes do meander - they gander any gender
a vision sender and life bender, sight dispenser
emotional inventor of what I have not yet comprehender

It rests in most corners, sitting like a friend
lingering, sniggering. It mingles everywhere
sharing its endless innards - sublime, all the time

Killer of my space, rapid, invading space and I am
a star homing into its Cyclops eye. Caught among the
flicker, flickering its emotional maze, trapping

Bulger's last testament - our mutual haze is collected
spliced and then it becomes part of the visual noise.
Squeezing blurred info, info radical, it spies

Whether calamity or vanity, it is here, there, no care
for path tredders, concrete pacers, measured am I.
Sought by dangerous eyes, it does despise my own eyes

Dead, wired into my life and yours, and it is our life
it desires. It wants, my situation is clocked.
Planted, stunted is one's growth, choking my mind

It rewinds the motion, a constant assault teeeezing
thy emotional glands. It does marginalize my action,
my movements. Jailing thy scope, limiting hope

Outer eye, evil eye, watching my personal growth, out
here. Consuming one's space, no grace, in yer face,
our race is traced, and then reinvented, displaced...

BlankHi Lee,

Before I excrete my emotional reasoning on this page below, Welcome to
rhizome...

A lot of the stations that I have personally worked with and do listen to a
lot of the time, in the UK and Holland; small stations mainly pirate - spend
a lot of time promoting local talent, with explorative musicians, poets and
traditional folk, plus dance. Those who are grassroots, and who do not fit
into the contemporary attitude/default, have been thumped by larger
corporate groups who have forgotten where they have originally come from -
Communities. Music can change a generation and cause revolutions because it
communicates outside institutional structures. If you get rid of those up
and coming groups, who are more than just 'pimp candy', you get a different
generation. One which could be less questioning about world issues and
everyday issues.

Copyright, is not the real issue here - judge the function not the
propaganda. I'm sure that you are aware that the Russians used to call
advertising propaganda - still do I hope. Promote the maxim, hide the
reality; is the truth behind corporate marketing - just check everyone's
accounts. I'm sure you've heard the news, all those poor companies who are
so caring. There is a much bigger issue at hand, and by denying this and
deluding ourselves that an action by such corporations is not connected to
suppression, would be foolhardy. Think of all those stations who are
promoting art/music that questions such negative & mindless exploitations
such as what you termed as 'Global Warming and Global Terror' and of course
this war about oil. It is a political move, wrapped in the guise of
economics - the soul of the white man is money; that is understood. Accepted
as our God, creativity is merely a tool as far as multinationals are
concerned, talent is always a threat - a loose cannon. If it is not put in
its place like everything else that can be bought, then it will be made
illegal to create on our own terms, and we will continue to be dumbed down
until we are just apologetic children, scared to think our own thoughts.
They are lying, that is reality. If we want to see the truth, we can just
open our own eyes - view from our own minds, not someone else's.

my flesh, frame and innards
is substance
water, iron & blood
and a combination of visceral functions

it is active
I use it
it uses me

like a worm
I eat the world external, I gulp
and then I shit
what was once internal
a recycled pulp

the world is my fuel
commodified and made easy
for the process
society is my parent
and it feeds my hunger

like a worm
I eat my world's resources
it manufactures my body
I accept in submission
what is and what must be
