On Reproduction



They say that reproduction
is the aim of every human thing,
but that seems awfully arbitrary.

One could equally claim that
we only reproduce so that what
we value doing continues to get done.

Intelligence without experience.
Experience without intelligence.
With without with.

Blind behind the theodolite
riding a repetitive loop of crisis algorithms
to speak the silence of the extinguished.

Poetry is the true text of the existentialist.
The essence of being is what-has-been.
