    Why poetry?

    softmorningwords:

    Watch how one good drop dissipates in a glass of water. It does not matter whether the glass is half-full or half-empty. 

    Crystalized disappearance, facets, layer by layer, a malleable diamond.

    Words become letters and then blur to its vein

    Temporarily, the poem, is mine.

    I return to the page, a stranger. 

    Refracting. Reflecting.

    a little monster in me
    distracted distractions
    self destructing
    curiosity takes a nose dive
    swan phoenix
    hope rising

    softmorningwords:

    to win a battle

    within a war

    invisible marshall

    armies of letters

    forming, sifting

    to counter the bitter pink pill

    through the soft morning sky

    i awaken

    …the artist has become the exemplary worker in conditions of late capitalism. The artist has become the exemplary worker and the worker is meant to be an artist, so to be a worker it’s not enough to just turn up at work and do your job: you have to be creative, you have to be innovative, you have to be flexible, you have to be constantly available. So, if you like, the new model of the worker is a model drawn from the artist, and that means that you can turn up at work wearing your Ramones t-shirt or listening to Radiohead on your iPod and you don’t have to shave or anything and you can be completely bohemian and say that you hate capitalism or whatever, but you’re still a good worker, and in fact you’re the best worker. There’s a sense in which the artist has become the paradigm fo work and I want to think about that a little bit to try and recover some discourses around work. There’s a rich history of discourse around work, which we need to go back to.
