I dream of GENiEmorphEMEology I: DERRIDA the colonel linguist: gene- SSES ' ANALogies ' RES & IUS SECRETing from CIXOUS' ARChive
May be I should eXplain meself | mEmOTHER says she DOesN'T read meME when I get like this | may being why I get like this | so Mothers of the worLd caN'T underSt.AND | like tHere ' when I say 'Mother' I don’t mean my mother but ALL mothers | o I could’ve said MOTHers if I wanted to strESS the CREPUSCULAR nature [ORIGIN mid 17th cent.: from Latin crepusculum ‘twilight’ + -ar 1] | | I've alWAYs wanted to live in a place with a STOOP ' not that I'd stoop to use it but b'cause I dig the word STOOP & just want to say "We live in a place with a stoop" for no particular reason other than to say the words | | | SUMtimes yoU just need to SURface for air | to towel off & REplay murky vIDEo of your deep SEA diving exploits ' to step out of the ScEnE & see what it is you are doing ' as seen from the EXT.ernal ' fumbling aRound down for to SEA | wHere yoU are go iNg in this zzzone of perPETual twilight | STOP | stop to think abOUT why you say the things you say in the way you say it | the FIrST thing that popped into my bRAIN this morning were the words “I came on her face” | not the actION of it but the WORDs | obvIOUsly a LOaded SENTENCE | most people would probablimMEDIATEly conJURE a bad VISual & regard it with dis taste o if they took PLEASurE from it ' it's in a dirty o pornoGRAPHIC way | but think about the WORDs: I CAME ON HER FACE | an orgasm could be a rich OReCHASM with a sLight shift in your berrain: 1. you're COMing on her face ' not GOing | GOING on her face would NOT be a good thing | GOing is sumthing done in a toilet | you GO piss | GOing implies you are moving Away | COMing IMPlies you were INvited | that you were aWAY from sumwhere & reTURNing ' preSUMablY home | 'LET THE RIGHT ONE IN' is a good way of PUTTing IT | 2. if something 'hits you in the face' it IMplies a SUDden realization ' w/out explanation | the face is the interFACE be tween an IndIvIdual & REALity | it's the brrred TAiLLE you disPLAY to the world | saying you want to 'come on someone's face' should be an enDEARing & thoughtful thing to say | but 'BeaUTy is in the eYe of the beHOLDer' | 'it takes 2 to tango' ETC. | if you thINK it's dirtY then cleanSE yoUr MINeD w/tHis | | |
In other words ' Derrida comes all over her face ' smears it on a slide & puts it under a microSCOPE:
We're not just talking HERe a bout face & words & grammar & syntax & etymology ' but also it's aboutting USagE: the SUMmatION of all conTEXTual EVEnts pre ceding it's use | the bagguage of a par tic ular word o phrase ' like 'COME ON HER FACE' is daunting & forEVEr MOUNTing w/ each USE | the word BUSH ' has been fucked & plastered all over the worLd since MY LIFE IN THE BUSH OF GHOSTS un til we can no longer BEAR o reCOGnize it's true memeaning | the bird in the bush is forEVEr shifting ' morPHing | a tongue is a living ORGANism | not a tongue depressed by a tongue depressor but a kernel ' lingual tongue | if a WORlD is used too MUlCH w/out thinking it dWINDles & dies | it loses it's meaning | we need to continuously keep pumping words with blood to keep them alive | we need to take the words back that have been misUSED & abUSED | | these aren't things Derrida says ' but in his bramblings on Cixous he made me think n this way | | | The source of the FOuNTain of Derrida's muse Cixous' library are her dREAMs | she writes right when she WAKEs up & is upright:
DERRIDA on CIXOUS ' MOUNTing on her liberry ' is inSPIREng to say the lEast | not only does he underSTAND the 10,000 meter VU of her library ' but he dis sects down to the mole cular le vel in a way that in & of it self be comes the art:
It doesn't eVen mather whetter you've read Cixous | she just hap pens to be the arbitrary literary library that Derrida maps completely in G ' G ' G & G arcHIVE SECRETs | per haps she's the chosen one be cause Derrida could relate to her ' both BEing French Jews born in Algeria | sharing genetic code | | in my REtiCiENT PONDerings of LANguage I've considered SCALAbility & inFLUENCEy | tHere are almost 7000 languages in the WORlD | Mandarin tops the list at almost a billion | sum 333 million speak English | sum 77 million speak French | there are a few dozen languages with 1 speaker & many languages go eXtinct EVERy year not unlike animal species | sad | while you might think it's best to write in English o Mandarin on a count of MARket share ' consider the number of books in that language to choose from | if you wrote a book in SQUAMISH there'd only be 15 people capable of reading it | but there's only so many books they'd have to read & you'd probably intimately know all 15 so probably all of them would likely read & it would mean so much more ' | the more its spoken the more a language is dilooted | any word strings Chaucer o shakeSPEARe spat from their lingual vaCUUM at a canvas stuck | words have since globbed & acCUMmutilated on every living and nonliving surFACE billboard|magaZINE|taxi|webspace|consumerproduct all garbled to gether to CRAP | English is the CHEATAH ' it's reached capacity for its carved niche but is a dying bREAD now lacking geneTIC diVERSity | its FUR code unraveling under the microscope & paparazzzi & MFAs ' self-inspecting leading to it's own demise | hence the need for GENRE and SUB-genre | to fjorge a head we need to cross-pollinate & induce mutations ' CULL ' selectively deconstruct to REbuild on the SHoUlDERS ' perpetually ' keep English rolling a stoned juggerNAUT gathering sum shedding sum | E.G. Nick Cave's first album FROM HER TO ETERNITY | the beauty in simply removing an 'E' | | CERTES ' certainly ' is an anagram for SECRET | A GAR MAN is an anagram for ANAGRAM | AMIGO REDEFINE is an anagram for I DREAM OF GENIE | this is not just about writers but READERS ' deCODERS | WORDs are a gift ' per Derrida:
You don't even NEED to reed Cixous to get her ' but I'm dying to kNOW her | it's more a bout what Derrida unCOVERs in her CoNT EXtS ' what it does ' did to him | she was his ARChival MUSE ummm ' his lingual MAP ping deFIBrillator | this is sumthing Cixous herSELF might say ' 'her' BEing the suMMM of her biFURcating bits:
What is lost in translation is a wHOLE NEiTHER story | like genes ' lanGUAGE can be translated but subTEXT of lanGUAGE is lost & only meaning remains ' the INtent not the UNinTENTional bytes | constituent MORphemes and GRAphemes are rejiggered & the mast shifted into a new organismeaning | i've got mORE to mine about L=A=N=G=U=A=G=E & deconstructionism & synTAX in different conTEXTes but this is all I can muster in one sitting | MORE TO COME ...
