it was amazing
bookshelves: poetry

It's completely obvious from reading this that if Conceptual Poetics & Flarf were to go back in time to the time of dinosaurs & were to jello-wrestle each other w/ one arm tied around each other's back that a new hybrid of poetics wd result that wd give birth to something that wd immediately die & leave no historical record beyond genetic encodings in the stool of woolly mammoths. In fact, this has already happened.

Was it Firesign Theater that asked: "How can you be in 2 places at once when you're not anywhHHHHHHHere at all?" This is the question The Nowhere Cooperative needs to ask itself before even trying to decide whether to take sides in a contest/argument that's really no contest/argument at all. Conceptual Poetics & Flarf aren't mutually exclusive & there aren't schools debating over their relative values & virtues. Having used both of them to equal effect for both sexual purposes & for stock market speculation I can say that they are egalitarian hippopotami in every respect - even identical - possibly even joined at the hip.
