The Renaissance

By | 1 April 2011

has only just reached
Appalachia. It’s winter,
& I’m driving with
the window rolled down,
listening to a pirated
CD of rapper, singer &
actor Yang Dong-keun
performing at a club in
the Hongdae district. His
use of ironies & wordplays
reminds me of—a legal down-
load this time—Herodotus
who I was listening to just
before, identifying, local-
izing & analyzing, by
purely syntactic parsing,
the recessive nature of
the sonnet in its meta-
physical form. Both are
back to their pissed
off indignant best even
though neither knows shit
about singing the blues;
but, hey, anything is
better than banjo music.
