Mark Young - Meanwhile, at Altamont

A woman weeps.
         focus on the audience!
Another woman bares her breasts.
         focus on the audience!
There's a famous band playing.
         focus on the audience!
It's basically a backing tape.
         focus on the audience!
It was recorded elsewhere.
         focus on the audience!
The lead singer thinks it's a Hindu festival.
         focus on the audience!
He dresses accordingly.  
         focus on the audience!
A fight erupts in the front of the crowd
         focus on the audience!
at the foot of the stage.
         focus on the audience!
Members of the California Hells Angels
         focus on the audience!
bring their brand of law & order
         focus on the audience!
to the gathering. The band is quiet.
         focus on the audience!
A man in a lime-green suit pulls a gun.
         focus on the audience!
A Hells Angel stabs him to death.
         focus on the audience!
You couldn't see anything, it was
         focus on the audience!
just another scuffle, says the singer.
         focus on the audience!

[Performance. Make your best guess at pronunciation and performance, using the codes you already know, in the light of what is actually shown here i.e. read what is actually here, not what you think should be here. If possible, perform it aloud and not just in your head. Multivoice is more than ok, but try to avoid pleasing melodies. Musical instruments may be used with, but not instead of, the voice; though, in this case, I counsel against them.]

How to Exist

Close your eyes and drool into your hat.
Squat on your phone and fart.
Open your eyes and stare at a pea for 5 hours.
Wait for time itching in your palm.
Name your fork a key.
Walk in the sea and shoulder a brick.
Drop your skin in a suitcase and take a nap.
Drink your pee and tear a sheet into 4ths.
Hold a face against your face and remember the future.
Sink your head in a bowl of linguine and
     listen to the instructions of murmuring light.

George Sabov - Phrazes for the Sullen Gabby

A great silence says hello.

A stumbling first step is always a pleasure.

Significant understanding is still not very coherent.

Serendipity jumps both ways.

The sky shoots pineapples with a machinegun.

Stupidity approaches at high velocity!

A flailing monkey is running away.

Utter nonsense brings both pleasure and pain.

Significant understanding rains heavily.

An enigma comes asking for beard.

Chair number eleven bathes in sunlight.

The legend of raven's roar will die in a grapefruit.

Nothing of importance makes people shiver.

Fingering does not make any sense.

A fly is not yet ready to die.

A sound you hear watching the sun.

Spam is not all that great.

A wave loudly clashing against a long shoreline goes to hell.

An enigma slips on a banana peel.

A classical composition rains heavily.

Wondrous awe always strikes for the heart.

Rock music  asked you a question?

Insignificance slips on a banana peel.

A setback of the heart runs through everything.

A sound you heard is good for you.

A passionate evening is nothing at all?

The last sentence stands upon somebody else's legs.

Daniel Y. Harris - Exergue XLV & XLVI

***
Exergue XLV


Sophia’s idiolects vy for the syntagm divinitatis symbola,
bulky capsules, her glissando their pleroma. Our vector’s descent
is mundus intelligibilis, its feuerball part eikōn, part the ergetic
in Per Aspera Ad Astra. She’s aspirant, a fortiori, a pontific role,
perfecti in the Aetherius Society. Jesus rose in corpore,
231−1 Mersenne prime as psychanodia, his genitalia la cruauté.
Seminal vesicles in the monk’s tonsure? Antisporic syncline
maxes out fluophosphate, transpositive would melanterite.
Saucer silos are segullot. The contactee account signals proprius
with a suction cup base. Whip the maniah rosho, our die Kehre
is here. Discern politeia from destruktion, proffers her gris
eminence. Whether fence or net, gitter is blockage. The letters,
grammata, or dualist Marcionites, titted by a secret successor
with multiplicity in eins. Shibboleths are circumcised,
waxes the Third Sargon, its DHvSS theologoumena, El Shaddai’s
war. Our polychrome is greyer, offers up ex cathedra prequels
for youth in the banelieux. Salvage what’s cleansed carrion man
from Sumi-Er, transom above the doorbell. Sprechgitter
is not a neologism. Irenic irony’s outré aim, the tachyonator’s
Alpha Aldebaran. Line 836:  if ((tmp = util_memsearch(conn->r
dbuf, conn->rdbuf_pos, “assword”, 7)) != -1). The penis
functions as an embouchure. It’s ascent from maqom raises
the ciborium for Arios, via in abyssum. Try aqua clara,
ascensio mentis is eyeround between bars, feted as embryo
farms. Dispatch tschandala for breed up. At the abbey gate,
anthropoi from the canonry notch a lachen. We, heartgray,
our paratactics a threadsun, burns by ambiphrach.



***

Exergue XLVI


Khôra’s liek nonelen deals a cut throat hitbodedut, her Noahic
covenant, broad unanuajce below patellas. El Jefe’s
insignia’s Gregor. The Samsa’s fieefernt are ciliary lids, turns
out their adjutant’s irute. By contrast, our conquistadores
have their thurifer’s infinum malum. Teally the antithsisi,
were immured, that is, ’ADaM, in his phylogenetic
pose, rebukes. Tardive dyskinesia has its parataxis. If patrón’s
in Baphomet’s sigil, then angles torque the furor teutonicus.
Our osilum augments their carved omphalos. How
hard is the aspergeant? Creamy excess, catachresis. Negate
valences, for keli as pericope gives our seriatim its phallus.   
The vicar’s ataraxia, confrères started out despising,
then celebrants, their divyas’ transense, cranes maim son’s
tonnage as zeugma in the catalogue. Nephilim are paqid,
in nomine magni dei nostri satanas, debuts this salute,
our hystera. Their macao constraints, dans ses dessous, rises
aslant and agog, the sefirotic axis. Trochees revise anapests,  
as pasigraphy’s in tatters, revving it, the nodal or vîras
in somanodia foists an incubus on bent shears. Line 846: static
int consume_resp_prompt(struct scanner_connection *conn). Full
refrain, exemplum, pursue that course ab initio, before   
the Ostrogoths substitute le mot juste for a thurible. In mundus
imaginalis, Ctrl+Alt+Del equals our rheostat’s dimmer, plash
or fallutin’, as demotic as dyssemia in kewpie dolls.
Quelque chose noir on Ulica Krokodyli, ovarian, enters foison,
embosses gloss, is ripple, splicing citation, input chemiotactic

be chlorinator daymark, anno in turn yields annona.
