from ALien Memory Machine (serial poem)

29.

Syntax is sadistic and first rate grass hardens. I’m sick of proficient regrets and ach so I’m texting my way into a pre-emptive heaven which indeed is most modern.

What is heralded in the folkloric plomp of our text spume. Read the text but don’t answer the questions. Which image do you like the most?

Indivisible equations mother the sky but I’m searching for a softer seat to engage in Socratic discourse.

By Robert Archambeau

I began the first half of this article (Notre Dame Review #4) by mentioning some of the limits to the legendary hospitality Ireland has shown to its poets. 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…
