iskin.

upward.

into porn.


where

yr face bleeds

like a

cheeseburger.

Praise for Begless


Is an active space of physical and intellectual inquiry

Is literally in “yr face”

Is happening against a background of torture

Is a space repeatedly carved out of the obdurate inaction of English, the history of power we call “grammar” or “syntax” or “meaning”

Is happening in or is part of the permanent war “like an advertisement”

Is about the first and second person “what was going / to go wrong”

Is moving reference around

(Is “O” an interjection or a character from Famous French Literature?)

Is punny

“iskin. / upward. / Into porn.”

Is to be read over and over
