1. The knee prevails, torments the furniture of the future. Intone the couch. Each travail illuminates the fabric of Jupiter. Poets detourned by chemical writings enumerate their outrages, suspended, and recite the ancient, unnameable Cyclops, their volatile fortunes impoverished by precarity, the blue improvisations of quantity and fragment. Our circular cars are the products of a horrible serpentine, bent infants an inquiry trespassed by aviary, by Python, by the Nous we nest in the pointless  tension of The Other (dual roles, parsed sauce, a roiling rose, the Delphic coup at Delphi, hirsute apples, the supernal melons of the philosophers). The foot is a fate. The gate is a floor. The door is a fountain. Blue centers attribute false realities to the ladders and sonnets of sunrise. Adjourn! Eject! Perchance! Plunge! Dance, approved by the clinic pouring pulse, marvels an approaching salt. Tripod excavates reception. An homage to the triple sun -- eaten by Apollo! ---------------------------------- (you can buy the book here)

first reading from Jim Leftwich's 'THE BLUE SEAM', written in september 2016 and published by monOcle-Lash Anti-Press in August 2020.
We strongly recommend you to purchase the booklet lest you be left alone in the dark forever.


the reading was done using only voice and a prototype of the NKdeE audioFaag that involves streaming a live performance over the internet and feeding back the stream to both the performer's ears with headphones and the master recording. this allows the performer to calibrate its awareness of what is about to happen to the incongruenties produced by time differences caused by internet traffic. the amount of information thus eaten from the future is by logical consequence directly proportional to the amount of listeners at the time.
as the number of listeners at the time of this recording was presumably zero, no information was actually received, but the exercise allegedly 'sharpened the awareness of its participant'.

sharpening our awareness of what is happening may cause horrendous pain but it's a established cure for any kind of mental disorder.
