The threat has been re-sent, exactly the same essentially, but no “via: oecd.org” this time, instead, “Mailed by: rentmen.com” which the front page says is a mail escort service. Do not know if this is an attempt to get me to take it as less sincere psyops, or more sincere threat (like “we can pay someone to do this”). Either way, it’s still utterly unclear what they want me to not do, nor what my sister possibly could have done, not who is speaking. 117 pm eastern. Some but not all details at:

(in the comments) Planning a more in depth story about this essentially when I feel like it.

I feel comfortable among the many eyeballs, as I am well rooted here and have spoken of this much already.

microreview & interview: Roberto Carcache Flores’ A Condensation of Maps

Starts off with a quickie called ‘Treatment’ from a therapist’s POV. Ends (before micro interview) with one comparing birds and the futility and artifice of human borders.

Geometry: back to work 

an argument for using the actual physical tools of geometry from 1000s of years, not only geometric algebra in classes, by a man who teaches at a K-12 design academy (or something like that)

Wanderings in the Labyrinth

It’s been a good long while since this particular project occupied my attention and focus.  However, I’m currently motivated to finish it — or at least finish the nine pages that I already have outlined and planned.  There are six more pages that are unplanned except for the margins, which means that I have a total of fifteen pages left to write, and maybe a card or panel to put in the pocket of the book, an afterword of sorts to explain the project a little better than I did at the beginning.

What project am I talking about? This one, the geometry book that I began a long time ago practically in a galaxy far, far away.  In fact, from the earlier entries from 2013, I can tell that I was already about sixteen pages into it.  Now, I’m thirty-seven pages into it, and I have fifteen left.  I’m…

Backspin Slot Machine Enigma


Sliding by the lucky numbers

Erupting one by one in the queue

Tailor-made for your death,

The cigarettes roll off the machines by the trillion

Slivers and buzzing bees, befuddlement and stereo-code

When the president goes for psychiatric treatment, he will have a locked ward all to himself, and all the staff will need highest level security clearances

For at most 3 weeks

Symbiotic code worms

Invisible wires to outer space

Lies & delusions

Applied chaos & emergent complexity systems theory in politics & culture

Domain name squats, fire ants, killer bees, Discordian wizards

Slip by the warriors, sneak hamburgers on the sly

Quite the phase space surface, quite the dimensional conundrums

Stop, drop, and unfold –

The dreams are communications from all the minds of Earth in parallel

the thought form of
the new glyph
suddenly rang out,
artillery-stunning, bell-clear.
Enjambed by the
adjacent schemata,
an entirely new methodology
suddenly precipitated. It
was still an assemblage of
familiar, basic, elements, yet
she was sure none had prev-
iously applied it. Be still, a
moment, to let the form be
fixed. To the pen she sprung,
& by what passes for metrology
in linguistics, piled on and assessed
some feathers, bells, & whistles.
The explorable cross-section of
the phase space yawned, of a
suddenaity gobsmackingly broad…..


This one was not sent on one of my cards and was unsigned, so if the recipient has figured it out it will have been by her own efforts. It was, for once, sent to someone who’s work I’m actually familiar with, Kory Stamper, Merriam-Webster lexicographer, blogger, and author of Word by Word: The Secret Life of Dictionaries

Pending Ebook Release, Book Description, Author Bio

cover5.5-smallerFinally got that manuscript through to BookBaby. I am waiting for their response on whether I need to fill out my own details with the ISBN agency (pretty sure I do). Should be available in 60+ markets reaching over 170 countries in something over a week. Here is the book description, after much consideration:

Synaptic Syntactic is a short volume by a self-taught poet, writing extensively since 2011. It has elements of Symbolism, Speculative Poetry, Verse Fable, and Lyric Poetry. Components from science, psychology, politics, and mysticism are liberally diced into the mix. It speaks with diverse perspectives, semi-abstract vignettes, and, in places, useful tidbits for those receptive. It can be read lightly, at first, as something not requiring any determinate explanation. Much of the work comes from extensive automatic writing in verse form, later selectively harvested and, less or more, revised. Included are 9 artworks (7 visual poetry), 3 longer and 7 single-poem sections, and 5 named characters. It benefits from 14 months of learning, study, review, and reconsideration since the 1st version (which was the 8th manuscript the author compiled) was released, under a different title. If the author were ever to write a novel, it might be of the Dream Punk genre.

I had been going to, at the last minute, make it free in an effort to break through, but that would have excluded me from several markets, and anything less than $2.99 would have excluded me even from Amazon, because over 10 MB (due to artwork). Much work remains to be done going forward, but this will be a great weight off. Plus, different markets have different terms, but if you price it less than $2.99 amazon gives you 35% instead of 70%.

Bio, which needed one more proofread, but is at the end of the book, anyway; I can still proofread it before I give it to the ISBN agency, and BookBaby didn’t ask, but there is more stuff for me to set up there:

Cooper Dozier is a self-taught poet who is trained in the analog and digital visual arts and well-versed in computer technology, assorted sciences, and the interactions of biomolecules, particularly psychoactive ones. He is interested in ideas about scale and information propagation & mutation and cultural topologies. Several people have told him he’d make a good mental health counselor. He took a weekend poetry workshop in 2009 and has since published over 1000 blog posts at Mindfire Cantata and others. Between December 2015 and March 2017 he sent at least 744 postcards, each holding unique text, primarily poems, and art of his design in what he has retroactively named Discordian Postcard Conspiracy, some of which can be read at Poetic Postcards. He is slated to be a Tupelo Press 30/30 Project poet in Summer of 2017. Series C of Discordian Postcard Conspiracy is pending release of the ebook Synaptic Syntactic: of unbounded phases and entangled echoes which benefits from 14 months of re-reading and edits of a different title He is developing a glyph-based creativity/brainstorming/divination tool to be called VerseCubes, as it will involve 3D printed dice, involving math/logic, science, and other glyphs, some he has invented or re-purposed. He is beginning a new prose blog called Synapse Weaver: fine tuning living rhythms, on topics including cooking for one+, meditation, spirituality, methods of writing, environment, and biomolecules. Additional info & works at Psychic fugue Studio.

Psychic Fugue Studio is back up; the ubiquitous domain squatters had decided to pass on buying it to sell back for profit.

3 poems w/ writing advice. 4/23, 4/29

Imagining warlords
Cut through by chaos
That was a fucking intelligent move
Try once for the battle
Try twice for the people
Try eighteen times for love
Speak in tune with quiet
Speak for the broken Beltway
Watch for loud hailers
Watch for patchwork quilts
Watch the time for rage
Watch the time for questions
Watch what’s in your heart


Tuck type
Tip tubes
Razor wire
And chicken coops
No balalika
No music here
Only TV and noise
Only luminous sympathy
Only sad sad tales
Only arrangement of puzzles
Only a choice to check out
Only a way to pass time
Pliancy
Arrangements
Loopdemous
Waiting
Cut loose, but without isles
Cut loos, & restrained
Cut in by degrees
Cut in on the skinny
Cut down & re-worked
Mockery without joy
Mockery of tickled pinko
Some by night,
While some by sea
No balance of favors
Cuts through the imagery
Let us rehearse
Where we wish to be


Don’t go back or correct or rework
You can try later
By their nature – things look super different
A day or six or a month later
Draw a line to stop
Draw it and be calmed
Tent canopies
Be careful, be loose
Do not write everything per se
Do not wait for inspired ideas
Do not take care without a dolphin friend
Do not check devices, nor eliminate
Purges
All ‘avoids’ and ‘advices’;
Never prohibitions or mandates
By the book is one way to go
But in looseness, you find your own patterns
Ever-shifting; inexact; uncounted; unwritten
Trust the process
Make it your own


I have reestablished my habit of doing pages of free poetry after the Morning Pages; not that I ever did work her entire program. Only 2 currently (poetry), not the eight of early 2015. And in 2015 I usually wasn’t doing morning pages. It is much easier, by the way, to handle this on wide-ruled paper. A page of poetry will often take only five minutes. Paper discourages instant editing, which I believe is good for productivity. It will take some time to reestablish the review, selective typing up, and second pass editing that led to my first two ebooks (of which, the revised and polished version, Synaptic Syntactic: of unbounded phases and entangled echoes is now behind my latest planned release schedule). It is, of course, easier to manage this when not nightly destroying yourself and having to rebuild in the morning. But the stress of too-many-projects eventually creeps up. Anyway … I’m digressing. There are also other ways to use/do automatic writing, but that is out of scope.
