Our interest lying in combinations
selections where order does not count,
where it is irrelevant
which poet mounts the podium first
or which student raises his or her hand,
which word follows another
as long as someone understands
that they exist.

how many words of eight
letters can you compose
from a standard alphabet
of twenty-six ?
* * *
Burroughs with his cut-up technique.
Words strung up
like thin white lines of powder
blown into a mist
reaching an outer stratosphere of thought.
A world where nothing is
as it is ought to be.Advertisements
