campanology is now Resident Alien

After some serious revisions, Campanology has now become Resident Alien. Resident Alien has a good chunk of Campanology, but the frame is a lot stronger (sequencing etc.) Resident Alien also circles the ms (as in saucer) in various ways.

Resident Alien = my personal political status in the U.S.

Resident Alien = a lot of people's psychological status (I assume)

Resident Alien= mind/body split. Is the body our home? Do you ever feel like a resident alien in your dying body?

Resident Alien= language as grounded. precise. "concrete" etc. Also language as strange via sound.

And many more. The bells/sounds are the residents in part of the ms, but they are also the aliens.

Nadja by Andre Breton helped me reformulate my ideas.

If you arrive in Ireland from any point of departure outside of Eastern Europe, you will indeed find a public far more willing than the one you left behind to grant poets the recognition all but the most ascetic secretly crave. However, this hospitality has never extended to Irish poets w…
