to get by in this world

to have an eye in this world
watching the door in a motel
that cleans out old stories every high noon checkout
and fills up the shampoos and soap slivers
that clean (for a time)the bodies
of knowledge that snored to HBO
living their own twisted sheet reality show.

John Jeremiah Sullivan,living in 2010
phones John Fahey from 1930 in a welfare motel
Two stories(only one of them a contemporary storyteller)

Milan Kundera/episodic as soap opera
imaginary as Fernando Pessoa
Rolling with Roland Bathes as the New Essayists

Here is where that elephant novel went to graveyard
Tusks torn out for bone ivory essays
Blogs are the bastard children of weblogs and sites
Flash fiction strikes.Forms follow the fallow fields of data
and The Present Moment becomes more than MTV
Image becomes Reality .Write About It!
