Uncreate / Removement

A poem from my short series "Self-Portrait with Husk" is now up at 42opus.

I've been thinking a lot about over-exposure, image management, privacy, secrets, the reasons we lie. The difference in care between honesty & full disclosure. The notion of "values," the socially-constructed importance ascribed to having "values" that fit with the moral standard of the maladjusted mass. The superficiality of certainty and the things people do in the name of their belief system. I've been thinking about the idea of uncreation that my friend Anna talks about, in reference to old ideas & modes of being - my personal term for this might be removement.

Getting back into african dance.

Watching this movie again ASAP.
