Poem 35 – Learning machines [Response to "Exchange Value #1" by Kai Fierle-Hedrick]

Learning machines

(for Kai)

Aphorisms are done for the

Whole mass of documents that capture and fix them

Extension of and agent external to the body

So the speaker is the engine oil, what needs the additive

GRUUB can accesss the entiree diissk

Guns a-flutter with no evidence of microinvasion

You realize how important “feeling whole” is

With you my self-confidence has sky rocketed

But a time machine wouldn’t look like a booth with spinning wheels

The only way to seal the gap is leather soaked in oil


Your documentary can document anything

Such evidence accrued despite the best efforts of lacy aprons

Build a machine to fill up the pause in conversation

Self here is the implied mental comfort

A low ratio of formative roots and limber joints

Replete with just-before-recess name-calling

I vacate the moment when necessary

You see me there

It’s that abstract.

  1. i'm beginning to be able to recognize donated language—no evidence of microinvasion—which brings another register of enjoyment (which is itself evidence of microinvasion)!
