I, in prior post, poem, failed-post maybe almost ok poem, wrote "twat." I like the sound; but I hate the meaning. If this and other epithets vanished, I would not rally for their recovery. I like restraints, so excising words from English strikes me as lovey not censorial. I adore syntax and this gets me into trouble: I didn't/don't mean twat, or not in any comprehensive way; it emerged out of a desire to write, write basically anything, write a logic that has no life outside of itself, but if so then I should be doing Zaum (sp?) not American vernacular. I am cool with the letter T, and W, and A, and T, but not when they're turned word. Stupid word. And even worse as acronym. It's kind of terrible how writing not meaning is what grabs me most. As if writing has no meaning even when none is intended. And then there's the Heterosexuality claim. I do believe that, do mean it. But I also mean this: if the world suddenly turned Gay as Gay as Gay as can be, the issue of female having dubious cultural status would not disappear. Heterosexuality is everyone's problem--which isn't to state one has to be aware of this--and I don't imagine any one demographic could lay claim to solution. I hope one year I figure out how to pull off lucid prose. I suspect it will be when I stop being me.
