KSE #232 (poetry chapbook)

TONALIST  FURY (Sound Library Series, Volume 70)

Inspired by both Johnny Mandel’s twelve-tone score to the film POINT BLANK (1967) and by an exhibition of lesser-known American impressionist painters (hence the title), TONALIST FURY was composed in April 2012. This is a five-section poem, the first section of which was read as a “prologue” to the performance of  “FASCINATION” that I did w/ Daniel Hipolito and Eva Kelly at the KSE 6th Anniversary Concert on April 29th.

The weeds are now being called  “grass,”  the returning warriors are spending their blood money on designer baby clothes,  cancer survivors are being sent to debtor’s prison for medical expenses, the governor’s cronies are making money off prison labor…while we find fresh vision in the beyondness, grasp for chestnut echoes of epiphanies we did not stop to savor as they were unspooling, carry the weight of cover-stories we’ve memorized, and steep ourselves in the kind of thought that blossoms in the Mountain Time Zone at the jazz corner of the world, a world of online classes and astral initiation. I was reading a lot of Pasolini when I was writing this, and I’m sure Pier Paolo has crept in somehow…

Hand-assembled, hand-numbered edition of 49 copies (over a dozen gone already), 10 random copies of which are printed on the backs of Daytona Beach Kennel Club dog-racing programs!
