“Grow(-ing)” “of Shame”

10.29.17, 11.1.17, 11.2.17 [see photographs]

here we now see

the kitchen

as a stage.

from the commonly used notion-


of “curtain”

with …



Methods, ways to

Cook and



The prep-cook,

Combines to prepare

a dish, a meal?     We know

At least

One ingredient,

Segment is,

Is like: “Tortilla”



How to cut?

[as cooking technique]


[as a cooking

Technique, still]

What cutting could do

[incorrect] if done-so

[like a training

Method to surgery,

Combat, construction, even,


repair – construction,


then to activities

That have cutting —

Like power: driving,

I imagine or its-thats version

most vehicles, cloth-making, clothes-making

Construction, other product-making,

Procuring/construction, working- out/ , teaching work-outs, et al.]






















Sounds tribal.





Well almost;

The consequence

Of the




Oh of

Course it

Says it’s [?] from





So what

Doesn’t happen

To the animals,

Contrary possibly to

Culture notions, happens

Instead to the families

During mealtime: huh!

A sense of lethal food

Dictated by “The

Tortilla Curtain” such

As poison.

(2) and as after-thought,

We scuse me

‘The Tortilla Curtain” intakers

Are instead

Eating splotched

“families.” Hence

This above usual?

Perhaps version gore

of “baptized”


In the end

“The Tortilla Curtain”

Through such declared?
doesn’t provide real

Food, meals and so is the

“Grow(-ing)” “of Shame”



The reason

perhaps that

the warning

comes from;

The see-able

To the potential

Victims: families;

From “The Billboards”

Is it hunger that

“can block eyes,”

Or is it something else, less virtuous; that won’t block “The Billboard … “ !


and here’s an

Answer: to the

Almost privy Q;

Do the poets

Survive as

Perhaps do

The animals;

And maybe

As surprising

To regular

Culture notions:

i.e. how could animals

who are often a

portion of the me[el]

ingredient be surviving

and also how might

“the poets” who

i.e. in regular

culture not earn


be surviving into

mealtime; and the

so described

lethality of

the meal.

Where we first have:

A proposition of

And perhaps from

This perspective

We have the entry

Into the top: of this


Who comes

With is it

Like alliance

To “a grave”

cited accompanying music:

Grimes, (-human) kill v. maim

Human behavior, Bjork

Rag n’ bone human


and the opposition of

“human” to “woman”

i.e. suggesting

based on what we conceive

in culture of notion: “woman”

points “human” as being of to it; opposite.

It is perhaps noteworthy

Why this might be a primary

Method to measuring “woman” [cultural notions and perhaps in opposition to contextual, this analysis]

As another séance in this


“To hike is to be

Comfortable in nature, a one-to-one

Relationship.” And still:

“To hike alone without

Preparation is to be a

Woman wandering, either

Lost or batshit or both”

Lookup “batshit” and

How odd so; since

In case of “human”


Then; “is … comfortable”

Either as “woman” the “hike”

Is not “in nature” or “human”

Is really to it “woman”

a different species.

In the case of “batshit”

though often

Heard of

With reference to

Crazy when

Broken down to the obvious:

Bat shit; it almost sounds

Like or rather the response

Of fear at scared. Of course

Within the derivations of

Scared and fear; in any

Case; “to hike alone

Without preparation”



Of Look-up

In process


Is conceivable with reference

To the perhaps new frame

Of bat shit; which of

Course could mean

Batting poorly, also. In any

Case running to a trail for a “hike”

Might make belief if

In a severe or even varied

State of scare and-or fear.

And with reference to,  here “woman” may be

The species that experiences

Such; whereas either

“human” is socially dynamically

Protected against

It: in reverse:

“that is, the normal kind”

“To hike in a pair or a group is to be the pack kind of human,”

Or perhaps to reserve the moment

Of a “hike” for preferences

Of “comfort—“ ; in

Any case; such perspicacity  [sp?]

Is what differentiates these

Mythical versions of “woman”

And “human” if even

Based on the regular

Derivations of these

Perhaps at least contextual

Now cultural terms. In any

Case the sense of fear or

Scared as in bat shit

Might mean directs us to

The beginning of the poem:

And of course

Since it comes form

“woman” we finally have

The reason for the perhaps

Opposing woman nuances:

“semen” et al. In any case it is likely “a grave”

Of “woman” do you think

Due to that “woman” version

Of “hike” or do you think

By the “grave”

Of “woman”

Salt as

an index,





as the

word alone?

instead of \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\————–

noticing what could be salt.


if we were going to

notice what could also

be salt; and-or

salt-similar :


on a continued, rough; and

semi-quick scan:


cited p.19 —> again

name of doctor;

is salt-like


cited p.20 “Novocain” is salt-like? how

cited p.20 “steak” is salt-like?


cited p.21 “It was beginning to hurt like hell.”


cited p.21


with the earlier

backdrop of

“salt” “nutritional”

advice; and

the silence + attack?

after this last

cited line; in

this text “salt”

and-or salt-like


might have a magical almost

addictive quality.


In other words:

from the interaction brief

on the top of

cited p.21;

“salt” – like when un-responded

to : can or perhaps does

escalate matters.

In an almost shamanic, shaman

response; “salt”

and-or the mention of

something like salt;

if un-responded to,

salt …

“the cheese”

a (non-cited italics)

different way. Is this

still a “salt.”


on cited p.13

salt to this

not surprisingly

shamanic – level

the main character /


almost such declares

indirectly the use

of “salt” …

out, too.

How do you recognize yourself;

how would you map yourself


I really hate bad smell[s].

Define what “bad smell[s]” mean to me. [means to me.]

” “Yer not eatin’ enough salt.”

he’ll go away.

“Okay, Jack, I’ll start

eating more salt.”

it reminds me to spit in a bottle upon others’ : cited brainstormers et al

suggestion ; and not [just] upon others

it includes the pieces of outsides [leaves in varying stages and twigs like my poetry]

to remind me how to compost;

and it of course is an additional trash collector in stage; as in stage phase

reminding me to grab and trash the notes I no longer use or need;

it also has decent scent since inside it’s filled with not just spit but leaves, and twigs; yeah; and the container of course reminds me to drink enough hydrating liquid and-or prepare still in the homeless life. cited: rum’s theory series on amazon
