    The shift has to be away from the star system and top down culture that is only ever so much propaganda and social engineering. This is what pirate radio achieved to some degree.

    I stupidly believed all the blog stuff was its own justification. I was so dumb I didn't realise all my peers were angling for jobs at the guardian.

    How do people like me and you, people who want to work that is, create a useful community? And here you have to have people putting in as much as they take out. I have a poet friend(not woops btw) who always demands and receives detailed and conscientious feedback from me but has never once reciprocated. And granted I'm so clever and advanced it's hard to grapple with but on the other hand that kind of man baby self absorption is a menace to any attempt to build something along these lines.

    The conversation is the whole thing and the 'art' is always an integral part of the conversation, not set aside as fetish object.

    And of course it's hard to work and hard to think and we're all tired and dissatisfied bled dry and etc etc

    And of course talent is not evenly distributed but I still think this is the only way to keep the culture game alive in any meaningful way.

    Prynne says a poet only needs one reader, and that's true but you do need that one. It's impossible to work without an audience. It can't be done. So the obvious solution is for reciprocal arrangements(like the Wordsworth/Coleridge relation he was referring to)

    And there's no reason why these communities and coalitions should last forever. They don't need to. They only need to last long enough to get some work done.

    realising, like in my body, that 'the breath that's true' is depressed, depressing, depressingly unambitious and returning to this idea that i was a real shithead as a teenager (but that's nothing notable, why do i keep dwelling on this?)
    feeling real fucking sorry for myself, much more sorry than i should be, as usual

    repetitive/static. terminally slow, not even in an interesting/psychedelic way but just fucking, cannabis depression/torpor. no high end. no light. just this insistent trudge, plod, muck. letting no light in. cover the windows and walls

    That's often the way at the tail end of a long winter. Whether you can do good work with that material is a moot point but you can certainly do useful work with it, even if it's really just a case of working through it. Being truthful to it, really allowing it a voice. That should help to get things moving again.

    Obviously we have our preferences and we'd rather look through the clean window than the mucky window but war on dust never ends.

    the breath that's true was an autumn record, from 2.5 years ago :q but revisiting it and feeling that way ab it, or rather feeling it more strongly than i had and feeling the need to say it here, is def influenced by how fucking long winter was. walked for a really long time w dogs today and it was super warm. loved watching the bubbles come up from cracks in the ice. felt Apt. my feelings rn are those bubbles
