The model of inscription
The dominant idea of the body as
Diffusion of confusion
A passive surface of inscription
Who is doing the writing?
What is the power of this?
Timelines of thoughts
How would we think together?
How is that thought coming into being?
How do we coalesce?
Coming together not quite in the right order
What kind of thinking is enacted here?
What kind of ideology?
Not in your own voice, but in the voice with someone else
Writing with hands
With similar points of contact
Is it a co-articulation across gender?
Who is included?
Who is excluded?
Together and apart
And at the same time full-body writing
Breathing through the winds of ghostly voices
Sensations pouring like ink
Does it speak with authority?
Is it open to critique and to
Breathing into and through the bones
What is it bracketing?
Is it joyful?
What kind of emotional tone does it have?
It seems to be so serious
Does it allow for play?
Weaving in through the touch, the weight
Hosts and ghosts
Giving the weight
Only what it needs, and exactly only that
Would it be in any another situation?
If sensations can pass through so can thoughts
How different is it really?
Always to the point, finishing the line
Does my touch change it?
Does it affect your thinking?
To call that ‘writing’?
I can’t quite get through you
Words not always come together
How it could be
The quality of its touch
Sometimes they seem to surface, but then
Searching for yet another mode of entering
It is a bit dense, there - maybe you can loosen up a little
They retreat again
Creating the space for appearance
They reach towards
But then decide
Creating a different ecology of mind
To depart, to take another route
Becoming susceptible for his humour, his wit, his
Enjoy that place!
Knowing how to do
To decompose again
Give it the final touch
Is that mind extended
But with some
In the sense of being expanded?
Spatially and temporally and whatever?
Writing from the place of touch
Where sensing and thinking are touching
Or is that mind a condensation, a crystallization of coagulated minds?
Streams of consciousness
With care for the other
Begins with a care for the self
