Three Pieces by Irene Koronas


opus 110 in a flat touch, kitsch’s ride
on ingres paper. praise putter rat

dispose in c minor sobriety
one bid narcosis. savor savior. need
cango forefinger. indoor

string allegretto. still sit still.
panoply balcon. good friday figs

passe defini aorist 

concern 2

crack glim’s feeb gull
diamet poses her ternal key

tune stimmuna’s instruert
the ut bitten room lies

crucifixion huddle absorbs
deskill to virtu smooth. stroll

kill. clique alters purp to ever
upwar. sweat fur. pow pow

aside the jitter drag div
trinsic in diagramatics

tri apex
sq gib
ft seg
yd insull
tsp idi

concern 3

imitation matt amuses a rip
open form is plash content.
gotten short. forgot burn
pissen coo. delibly or fix lame.
vermillion tep not quest wakes

defi blood let’s ally taste. ease org
verberation. about 21 spank
cobalt. the sphere lays one
two stratagems. dark

erebus has plenty of merika.
trum attribute, postilion.
hell the mediocre reem oath
hampers pulsations, each sharp c
nonstation and lay

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.
