The Dialogics of Will Alexander & Heller Levinson, Part 1

Heller Levinson’s book, Un--, forthcoming from Black Widow Press this Spring, will feature further trackings of the Dialogics. For pre-orders and more information, please visit Black Widow Press.

Dialogics:  The Dialogics are ongoing conversations between Will Alexander & Heller Levinson.  They began in 2001 in Los Angeles over beer & burgers at “The Saloon” on Pico Boulevard.  Below is a sampling of recent exchanges.

H = Heller Levinson.  What is the Essential difference between the Athlete & the Artist? Is there a difference?

W = Will Alexander.  Many many similarities. Having done both I would say the artist rows further into eternity. 

H:  Is Infinity more than that which precedes & concludes us?

W: It would have to be in excess of matter itself, given that matter prevails as a subsequent realia. By absorbing it's originatory condition it betrays it's own resistance to this condition thereby invoking a curious maturation via osmosis. 

H:  Could we not simply say that Infinity is the Non-Containable.

H:  The problem I’m having with the phenomenologists, i.e., Husserl, Levinas, Sartre, & Co., is their identification of transcendence, exteriority, otherliness, specifically & exclusively with the alter-ego, with personhood.  This annihilation of the natural world – the tadpole, the lizard, the tree, leaf, rock, earth – is both troubling & incomprehensible.  Incomprehensible in that how can ‘thinking’ persons possibly overlook such vitalistic abundance.  Is this what separates the poets from the philosophers (another schism), from a Whitman, say, who could talk of “ . . . touch my flesh to the earth as to other flesh (Italics mine) to renew me.”  The time has come for poet & philosopher to merge, to anoint the earth newly.

W: As curious as the following may seem, Existentialism remains a modified remainder of 18th/19th century argumentation as a kind of insular quantity. The latter argument invoked a divide that the early racialists and classifiers nurtured and seeded. Names such as Cuvier, Blumenbach, Samuel Morten,  and Arthur de Gobineau most forcefully come to mind. The latter casting their collective lot via the fostering of division. In this context American Indians, subjugated Africans, Asians of all stripes remained at the level of tadpoles and lynxes. Never to be equated with the human ideal reserved for the vaunted Greek ideal. 

When Sartre, and Husserl, and Levinas, invoke human scale as their most significant point of concentration, it rumages, around within a delimited purview via a constricted socio-political humanism it's glossary naturally fails at rendering the other. This glossary attempts to define  singularity as a type of human experience as the central integer within the flux of cosmic number.  Add to this, it seems to assume its subject to be the condition of European consciousness as it emerged from 2 devastating Global conflicts, from the social devastation chronicled by Dickens during the rise of the Anthropcene. Of course we can never forget the shadow cast by the 80 million slaughtered Indians in the Americas, and the 100,000,000 maimed souls due to the trans-Atlantic circumstance that was the African holocaust.

Indeed, Existentialism rendered by the larger has failed to invest itself in the authenticity of the other. Indeed, it came to fruition during a span when Europeans seemed to wander without purpose across a pointless inscape littered with post-Hitlerian pyschic debacle.

Hydrogen by Dave Shortt

promiscuous autonomous bonds with forever,
food & water following from the sun forming
from the one protium abundance, deuterium
was more sociable but
still their ages made them incomparable (incompatible) , she
wanted a baby who would never breathe
petroleum fumes, odorlessly would it
mobilize into moderate fusions, while
mega-bombs repressed in dark matter
slumbered, as spectacular oxidizing explosions
assimilate into heat & light's civil function,
a pleroma of solar wind comes in as waves
of disenfranchised ones with their property
of unpredictability, never to be known
will continue the deep isolation of the mass
awakening within the molecules
as neutral or charged co-existence of the lighter
with the heavier, extended & further committed,
in splendor materially,
the surpassing plurality 'alive with innate colors'
brought under its gregarious paternity
& polygamous character compounded with the ease of starlight
fomented with compassion induced
from the underground meeting between water & the fayalite, coming
from there to here & back again
the chemical chimaera of laboratory earth
occulted in its home
nurturing & morphing the legitimate residency
of the 3 forms of self-determination
born in breaking symmetries in the prime of time the time of prime,
protium deuterium tritium
in free states of radioactivity, stable non-neutrality, & endurability

'traceable to the Big Bang,' they
invisibly fuel concentrations of such peace
as are controlled by the sunrise
& are awed into corn's carbon pathways being harvested,
trinity of underground & galactic plasmas
isotopic in omnipresence,
one of the fraternal twins venturing into Kekule's benzene dream,
as the levity of bilateral talks escapes earth's gravity
& leaves the atmosphere, to be replaced
along reducing routes of biochemistry medicated or wild,
emitting equivalent appearances of potential dialogue
in the grip of consent from the auroras
predictably sharing until tomorrow & tomorrow & tomorrow
a change magnetized right here
into a usually incredible greenish feeling
of one period occurring overhead at a horizon
of Love streaming naive,
lightyears before & behind baryonic curtains trying to introduce
quantized norms abuzz with gassy kinetics
specifying an ant or a fertilized field
variable in strength in an organic history
held together over a drink of
whatever tastes good, transitioning
into acids cola'd or digesting the earth
in annihilation of each moment's configuration
adjectived or not,
ascetically detached from any anion-cation duality
of its position,
servant of a neutrality motivating
an equation the other side of which is numbered
unaccountable Consciousness, where embedded matrices
justify the muteness of the lightest baby of the atoms
in analysis of the desire unable to desire
& of the familiarized-with electron unable to analyze,
the alleged simplest common denominator of 'relationship,'
no way to break its geometrically-pretended longing
to provide every necessity available in the spectrum
of the spectrum
for the spectrum's every energy level innocent in need,
probably never to return to the wastes beyond when
it started traveling into the definitions of 'solitude' & 'deprivation'
actually proving itself as a kind of trustworthy shamanic daredevil,
the faithful friend lost track of,
now a multitudinous follower now the one followed,
now a primitive endowed creator lacking nothing
& everything

Dave Shortt is a longtime writer (from the USA) whose work has appeared over the years in numerous print & electronic literary-type venues, including The Ekphrastic Review. More of his poems can be found in Uut Poetry, Molly Bloom, Poetry Salzburg Review & Blackbox Manifold

Snow to Sleet then Night by Joshua Marie Wilkinson

so half our life is vague and stormy make-believe. –Glenway Wescott

Which would make the other half

Fear of death, the snaky punishment of trying
to mask our desires?

That aversion named pleasure?

So much for lasting all night, inviting in
the spirit of the other.

What’s unkillable in us is perhaps
what’s distasteful in any neighbor.

Shortness of breath. The inability to reflect
mid conversation. Restless dis-
ease. Anxious attachments. Poor drink.

When I stop to look around it’s just a wet breeze.

Snow diminishing to sleet
to whatever slurry’s left of anything.

I want to stand up when I’m sitting. Sleep
when I’m running. Fall when I’m flat

on the ground. Through the rug to where?

Not death, of course.

Some other vacancy. Some other set of

The works “elias,” “concern 2” and “concern 3,” included in Silver Pinion, are from my manuscript holyrit, Volume IV of my Grammaton Series, a series which can be characterized as postlanguage, hyper-minimalist écriture, melding the aporias of a posthuman poesis with an orthodox spiritus. The results of this meld are the invention of a high minimalism manifested through units of measurement: the grammaton. As with a digital bricolage, no grammaton cleaves to a single narrative account but rather to an infinite array of variables, memed and burrowed from matrices comprised of gematria, the fibonacci code, hagiography and iconography, as well as syphoned from a trajectory of experimental literature and poetics from Dadaism to Uncreative Writing. My Grammaton Series is fashioned from a panerotism reconciling the disequilibrium encoded within the hyperlinks of a retromanic pleroma and a feminine clinamen. I relegate identity and gender to funerary antiques in a reliquary. Dexterity, agility, finesse and hilarity resurrect the zombies of confessionalism, so as to unleash stanzaic androids and gynoids, secreting glossolalia from postdata holy writ, creating a grand, new poesis for the 21st century.

Irene Koronas is the author of numerous collections of xperimental writing. Her individual collections include declivities (BlazeVOX, 2018), Volume III in her Grammaton Series, ninth iota (The Knives Forks and Spoons Press, 2018), Volume II in her Grammaton Series, Codify (Éditions du Cygne, 2017), Volume I in her Grammaton Series), Turtle Grass (Muddy River Books, 2014) and Emily Dickinson (Propaganda Press, 2010). She’s a graduate of the Massachusetts College of Art & Design and is the Publisher and Managing Editor of X-Peri.

Two Poems from Red Clock by James Knight


if you look at him
the Bird King pulls levers
            making objects move
                                       in the dark

now and then
a man or woman
asleep or dead
reaches     for       him

                        across             the                               water

but he isn’t there
or anywhere


the red clock grins toothily

                        my       my

the Bird King skitters
                                         about the molten kitchen

naturally you feel threatened
                                         so you shrink into blue

first principles
                                         loss and derision

MBARI 1 by Uche Nduka

More windowed or less. Summer in a garden chair.

Put your hands down there even if there are holes in your pocket.

A life in search of the impact of loving backwards.

Even with a newspaper to sign instead of a book.

On the way to the treehouse. About a rental and radiant ethnicity.

Uh, well, you see, you're in partial pursuit of brush fires.

Like if I knew then what I know now.

Some cloudy discussions about saving time and saving money.

Every three blocks I look to see what is inside me.

This would be your wealth. The sky is turning red.

You hurled the caesura at a chandelier. What's moxie, anyway?

As opposed to commuting I don't feel like passing through.

The five stages of wickedness. A hashtag, a loss of henna.

Projectiles of prehistorians. I don't even trip anymore.

Figured out how to adapt to excitation. A month from now.

Claw-marks under a hand-glass. Upright frame bushwhacked.

Not a battle of wills but a battle of pills.

When I was filmed it was really boring.

One cross drives out another. Brilliant discord, pine needle.

A rider thrown by his wayward horse.

Like the time I didn't nitpick and my intimacy got stolen.

Death can't conceal sex and sex can't conceal death.

A moment to become a man or a scythe.

The cross-street argues with the cross-hatch.

A contract to protect you from ridiculousness.

Foreign to the season of the ravages of sensuality.

I'm going to wing it not minding what you said about it.

To summon the skin-diver. No sentence less than thirst.

Lowest job in town isn't blowjob. A loss of spare keys.

Or else it impels us to the zenith of a sandwich.

I don't care if you're vacationing in Indiana.

Anguish is bliss as we plunge into the vast linen.

If someone asks me to sign something or spill something.

I'll bloom where you are. A gobbling cantata.

Predawn versions of the open house.

How difficult to disguise your speed.

We travel for days inside each other.

You continue to believe in each and every shithead.

It has central air and she is cool.

Friday, the sumptuous and edgy fidelity.

He sometimes comes here for concerts.

You can have a brownie if you wish.

She has allergies so I must vacuum the house.

Sliding down anomy with a bright blue key of quicksilver.

I told him about that and he gets it.

Magnificent blunders of a six-eyed Banjo.

Your edge adores you. Katabasis of the open heart.

She is the one that made a plea for a raft.

With his parents out of town, hell broke loose.

The shifting ceiling of this room. There are chilies.

For now language is our only sanctuary.

I have my head up my ass. You have your head up your ass.

But morning can bear the weight of our brokenness.

Pure protocol. He was your target of ejection.

You don't have the right to humiliate him.

Less glowing than growling less drums than strings.

My dad's paternal uncle whipped his wives with canes why.

Tables we can wheel around. A flashing cursor.

How do you ground yourself?

I know the play you are talking about.

Second chances with sidewalk salt.

She has many other things going on. Fantastic!

Now what? Your breasts on my ribs.

Are you gonna be free tonight? You better be.

One stranger. Two strangers. Three strangers.

Between the hills your wife photographed from behind.

And even though you won't waltz me to the end of the tunnel.

Blessed are the complications and impossibilities.

A dial like a gust of sorrow. I had to roll in all that.

Of fate and inversions of tiredness.

The documentation of depletions. Her down and dirty testaments.

You don't have the right to humiliate her.

The Postman just dropped off a box of despair.

Danger and mirth are linked. There is snot in every chair.

That strategy is boiling over. A man on the edge of a hill.

Somewhat shaken when an attack of the equinox is afoot.

Sniping spree in a gift shop.

He booked a cruise for both of us.

She tells him to skip the slow motion.

How to live in the cathedral of our desire.

That script we wash ourselves in.

Your music misled the candles and the angels.

When geomancy began to go wrong.

Every once in a while my shorts on her floor.

You entered the apricot.

Which exceeds the limits of rapture.

Monday to Friday: returning flights.

Something like fencing, an inventory of adultery.

Saint of all time, psychic debris, her paraphernalia.

Which is not to say I've not been a witness to the carnival inside bones.

You jacked off and ended up not braking for a light.

7 flavors. The kind of space where language pukes.

Answers in motion together with broad-backed secret lore.

Culture is your cudgel. Nowhere else is of much use.

This must be what sardines in cans must be feeling right about now.

Those streets soaking inside tantric weeks.

Peace of quiddity and scab of suburbia.

The only way to dodge your destiny is to eat it.

To pull the handle and fly formation if I can pull myself out from under self-torture.

Our salvation didn't depend on what simplicity had wrought.

8 incarnations. Marimba moonlight.

Uche Nduka is a Nigerian-American poet, essayist, collagist. He is the author of twelve volumes of poems of which the most recent is titled LIVING IN PUBLIC(2018).

Gilded With Infinite Variability: An Interview with Daniel Y. Harris

I am pleased to present this interview with Daniel Y. Harris. Along with being Publisher & Editor-in-Chief of X-Peri, a stream for high experimentalism, Harris is the author of numerous collections of xperimental writing. Topics covered here include the writing process, the evolution of his Posthuman Series, The Reincarnation of Anna Phylactic (forthcoming from BlazeVOX [books]), a foray into the elusive "I" and "it," respectively, among others. Included in his responses, you will find select pieces from the Posthuman Series as well.

DCW: How long have you been working on The Reincarnation of Anna Phylactic? What does your writing process look like?

DYH: The Reincarnation of Anna Phylactic, Volume III (Manuscript), The Tryst of Thetica Zorg, Volume II (BlazeVOX, 2018) & The Rapture of Eddy Daemon, Volume I (BlazeVOX, 2016) are the oeuvre, to date, of my Posthuman Series, launched in 2016. The Posthuman series can be characterized as invoking a posthuman praxis, a shift in the humanistic paradigm and its anthropocentric Weltanschauung. Posthumanism’s epistemology is a post/meta/trans, enacted through its emergent ontology and critique of biocentrism. The xperimentalism at the center of my Posthuman Series is a lingua franca comprised of algorithms with rhizomatic outlines: dynamic, mutant, shifting.
The core trope of the Posthuman Series is the algorithm:  alteration of Middle English algorisme, from the Islamic mathematician, Arabic al-khuwārizmi, flourished a.d. 825 translated into Medieval Latin algorismus during the 12th century under the title Algoritmi de numero Indorum.
Computer algorithms such as the Low Orbit Ion Cannon (LOIC) and the High Orbit Ion Cannon (HOIC), examples of the common DDoS attack script, are the new phrankoi of an xperimental poiesis whose intent it is to create infinite variability as the new narrative. Algorithmics facilitate a siphoning from a canonic trajectory by launching an aporia at the center of a plurivocity, part totum simul and part anagnorisis.
The Posthuman Series is a praxis which seeks to reassemble the Western Canon as a malware maelstrom of over-competing algorithms and agons modelled on the arch-classic Horatian Ode, “Exegi monumentum aere perennius” (I have finished a monument more durable than bronze). This “bronze” is capable of translating a symbol as infecund as a two character Thai sequence into syncategorematic hyperlink. Via (λx.λy.(λz.(λx.z x) (λy.z y)) (x y)), a Turing automata, constructing a CGI with an fMRI scan, invents the new narrative with hexDump(“TELOUT”, buffer, len) using an HTTP electracy, melds prosody with an infernal machine of computer viruses: ILOVEYOU, Code Red, Melissa, Sasser, Zeus, Conficker, Stuxnet, Mydoom, CryptoLocker and Flashback. The Reincarnation of Anna Phylactic is launched:

The Reincarnation of Anna Phylactic (Manuscript)
Volume III, The Posthuman Series, (1.0) 

By Algoritmi de numero Indorum, the Posthuman Series crosses the mulitversal periphery, but it does have algorithmic precursors in my oeuvre. In the seminal Hyperlinks of Anxiety (Červená Barva Press, 2013), DRAKONs melt cryonicals—the bot blogoid inserts a SIM. In “Confessions of Blogger,” the blogoid “Add (s) a mix of theurgy/and hyperlink to neuts of gramme—I spin/henosis in blogland: neurons/in the wet gauze/of def, spores of tag—the zot in the stasis/ of the Web:/.” In The Bug in the Bait File, “An ecclesia of wings/enters ear/and net/Trojan or worm/replicates/deadlock by/a bit rot glitch/of a software gland/in a handle leak—.”
In The Underworld of Lesser Degrees (NYQ Books, 2015), as deus ex machina, a cybot in the form of hypostasis declares “Faith is anemic, propane/blue—sulphur-pox:/kelvin or rankine, scaled to a thermodynamics/of absolute zero and zero/is the adiabat S = 0:/.” Cybot curves its oblique asymptote with E/N/C/R/Y/P/T/I/O/N “Limbic behavior occurring at the daemon bifurcation: the attracting/de-acting fpoint “collides” repelling period q-cycle −1.401155 or −0.1528 + 1.0397i#@endtime, volution function discrete/waxy non/post/ur/linear dynamical system: lap numbers of the iterates X-ray.”
Given the asumptōtos and misprision of the precursor, the protagonists of the Posthuman Series “Anna Phylactic,” “Thetica Zorg” and “Eddy Daemon” are comprised of a dramaturgy of postbiological AIs rendered as Miraibots and DDoS viruses. Each posthuman protagonist breaks away from hegemonic essentialism by augmenting traditional narrative forms with cybernetics, genomics, neural interfaces, algorithmics, molecular nanotechnology (MNT), whole brain emulation (WBE), IMs (instant messaging), IRCs (internet relay chat) and (MMORPGs) massively multiplayer online role-playing games.
In The Rapture of Eddy Daemon (BlazeVOX, 2016), Eddy Daemon emerges as the first mature posthuman protagonist in The Posthuman Series, simultaneously macranthropos, Shakespearean omniscient, self-overhearer and AI interface:    

Invokevirtual #16; //ethod java/io/PrintStream.println:(I)V

Nvokes an interface ethod on object objectref, whereas interface
ethod is identified by ethod reference index in constant poolix
(indeddyxbyte1 << 8 + indeddyxbyte2) and count is the number
of arguments to pop from the stack frame including the object
on which the ethod is the sabprimd Eddy Daemon or greater
than or equal to 1 jump to subroutine at branchoffset (signed int
deconstrax ursigned bytes branchbyte1 << 24 + branchbyte2

address on the stack pushes a constant #index from a constant

where opcode is either iload, fload, aload, lload, dload, istore,

or execute minc, when the index is 16 bits of a bagouted

In The Tryst of Thetica Zorg (BlazeVOX, 2018), in “Exergue I”, Thetica Zorg has hybridized her/his “Godbot” digital torso with a DDoS virus, partially scripted as “echo ipconfig/release_all>>c:windowswimn32.bat.” Thetica Zorg performs autofellatio and “The Imps are born by remote homo ludens” (both the book, Homo Ludens, Huizinga, 1938 as well as inborn play) “and CνB decoupled” (a cosmic neutrino background at a temperature of roughly 1.95 K.), thus “in redshifts.” Finally, “in thresh interfaces” internet “files are cast” as “WIN-BUGS FIX.EXE” and the virus inseminates the Western Canon of Literature. (WinBUGS are the successor to BUGS, the first program to perform Bayesian analysis of complex models using Markov chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) methods, and provided access to the functions of BUGS through a Windows interface.) Transversal alliances between human and posthuman agents are cast:

The Posthuman Series protagonists Eddy Daemon, Thetica Zorg, The Imps, Gregor Samas, Khôra Samsa, Orb Oran, Salvador Dracu, Maximillian Pissante, Sophia Latrinus and Anna Phylactic are glossolalists, syphoning their lexicon from English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Hebrew, Aramaic, Arabic, Greek, Latin, Russian and the computer programming languages, HTML, BASIC, C, C++, COBOL and Java. Mixed with this Posthuman Migdal Bāēl are enumerative and extremal combinatorics, optical physics and thermal dynamics, all melded in a bricolage of the kabbalistic concepts of notarikon (letter combinations), gematria (assigning numerical values to letters) and temurah (sentence and word rearrangements.) The Posthuman Series zeitgeist burns heterocosms.  

DCW: How did your Posthuman Series coalesce into something so dynamic? Who and/or what informs your writing?

DYH: My praxis (πρᾶξις: theoria, poiesis, praxis), part eupraxia, part dyspraxia and part prassein, is that of siphoner. I am posthuman, automata, archivist, chameleon, cybot, singularian, übermensch, dandy, Iago, Pierrot, Pulcinella or Mephistopheles, Maschinenmensch, avatar, alias and bricolagist, sauntering in fedora, clad in black & red, Kiuw Pueblo patterns, through The Bibliotheca Corviniana, The Aedificium, The Madrassah Library and the Algoritmi de numero Indorum, via Jacobian matrix and determinant. I am the form Ω ~ R × Σ, where Σ is a three-manifold of the nontrivial topology. Launch the complex in the Roman Ring.  My ringularity is located at the equatorial kink of the inner ergosphere at R=a.
            My écriture by digital declensions occurs on a laptop and android. A dozen websites are hunted with the precision of a sniper’s Kalashnikov or a Black Hat Hacker’s DDoS stealth. Is it omnicide, larceny, auto-da-fé or misprision? A mosaic absconder? How conceptualist! How post-conceptualist! Dr. CannIbalIsM or synkretismos? King Moshiach: (Hebrew: מָשִׁיחַ‎, translit. māšîah; Greek: χριστός, translit. 
khristós, lit. ‘anointed, covered in oil’) or cyboric einsatzgruppen? Part Zelig, part Ex Machina, part Ezekiel’s solar mass (M), I am Vitruvian Man and Nosferatu in a binary X-ray source GRS 1915+105. The temporal is exponential, rather than linear. The proverbial “it,” is gilded with infinite variability. I eye the tidal forces acting on a spherical body in a non-homogeneous gravitational field, and tag this list to siphon.

DCW: There is some alluding to sexuality in your work. I can’t help but think of Heller Levinson’s remark that the Universe is quite erotic. How does the erotic figure into The Reincarnation of Anna Phylactic?

DYH: In the cosmogonies, ἔραμαι, and its theia mania in BDSM, dominant cuff, caritas. Link the Facetiae to the rubber fetishists as syzygy’s split. Flanked by Onan, masturbari’s cognate is part mézea, part turbare, jerks a frig. Anna Phylactic’s subphylum launches its cycle: egg, planula larva, polyp and medusa autoaffect toInfect.CodeModule.AddFromString (“Private Sub Document_Close()”). Adēlon: obscure, secret, nocturnal—the erotic figure’s vibrator reincarnates the singularity. Urethral sounds, corpus, having it out w/flesh, flesh of Christ. Touch what, coup, caress’ Anna Phylactic’s erogenous shock, over the glans, via pressure on the perineum is the (souche) > where interval of divisibility is indivisible, continuism.    
The Reincarnation of Anna Phylactic

                                       Cum’s Vexilla Regis on her man’s

 (1.1, Lines 6-9)

Responsa: Semen from a Latin hymn on Anna Phylactic’s man. Her man, the Miraibot, inseminates the computer virus. Maul out.BAT* holds the sphincter open.      

is paraphonotexuality dressed as Frank N Furter.

(1.4, Lines 4-6)

Responsa: Win-bugsfix.exe is spyware, a trojan, “paraphonotexuality” (unplanned sound, accidental ambient noises) dressed as Frank N Furter. Frank, the sweet transvestite from Transsexual, Transylvania, is frogtied, collared—a profile of a goth-pink, penile gland as one of Anna Phylactic’s minions. BDSM joins DDoS.    

                                         below Sodomites, quella cruna”,
            their penumbra, Cato becomes Figura Christi.

(1.4, Lines 22-23)

Responsa: The Sodomites from the Kingdom of Sodom, sodomize the Semitic root ʿ-m-r, peccatum Sodomiticum—dom takes sub. Quella cruna” or Dante’s eye needles purgatory, his and our “penumbra” (the shadow cast by an opaque object), is Cato’s (either Distichs of Cato, Cato’s Letters or Cato, a Tragedy) beCuming Christ. Anna Phylactic, as Dante the Pilgrim, eyes a sodomized Χριστός, VB/C/ASM/C++/Java or binaries (bin).     

             Necrose purple, nunic in its amygism

(1.8, Lines 10-13)

Responsa: Tumescence is “necrose purple” in its erectile tissues. “Nunic,” as (ccTLD), or as in a DNA polymerase found in higher eukaryotes and implicated in translesion synthesis. “Nunic” as in Ezra Pound’s derogatory “Amy”-(gism) or Anna’s gism, minus the “j”, the seminal vesicle driving the reincarnation. Anaphylactic shock or ejaculation? The bondage rigger wears a “watch fob” to “oil” the sexual fatalist “Parisex’ cocksleeve,” (Realistic Soft Silicone Penis Extender).Voila, cum occurs in “Melchidael’s opoi in the jaculate dire.” Crystalline drops of hot white serve to provide a Fraud/Abuse-specialist, whose servers are often attacked via SSH-, Mail-Login-, FTP-, Webserver- and other service.

                      The agon’s embryogenesis,

            white gloves and monocles, a puffy satrap

ddr.s_addr = inet_addr(XS(“”)).

(2.6, Lines 11-15)

 Responsa: “The agon’s embryogenesis,”—which agon? Olympia with halteres, Strong’s Concordance as agón: the agonic swallow, the agon between the digit and the biomorph or the pugilistic agon against the aesthetic progenitor? Pick the theory of revisionism. This agon’s “embryogenesis,” with its zygote undergoes mitotic divisions, is a “lolling body.” Loll, as in saunter, antagonizes the hysterical pace, bears excrementia (the frontal lobe is replaced by excrement). Who’s caning? Before the intermezzo, the agon is a 19th century French pederast, sports a “pink penis,” is a “puffy satrap,” (a provincial dandy), and “prances.” Anna Phylactic’s agon prances on one leg. His prance is malware in the form of Morris Worm source codes.
