Day 8


Recommended Posts

the house does not shelter us from cosmic forces; 
at most it filters and selects them
” Deleuze & Guattari 

Readers express
a dislike of opening quotes 
diminishes the impact prefer
your words not stolen bits
from philosophical betters

Found Art
a chance to break trance 
to switch perspective

Duchamp made a home in Transition
declaring The Fountain a urinal
to be his art Elsa von Freytag-Loringhoven
created a home in Transgression
by doing it first Both declare:

A space in
The House of Art
The House of Patriarchy
The House of Culture
reclaiming their Right
to a Public Sphere

We have been told
We don’t have Nomad Hearts
Our House is Our Castle
A bulwark against the World
and its discontents forgetting 
both Owner and Owned

spin around the Earth’s Axis
subject to heliocentric orbits
modified by eccentricities 
of fellow planets
While gaseous
carbon belching
Solar vehicle

Moves in spiral dance
Across the weighted emptiness
of our galactic home ever wandering
ever here.
