Morning Ritual — 1.27.22

Internet culture is saturated with memes, but how would you explain a meme to someone who doesn’t get it?
Everyone knows what the day-to-day drudgery of ‘work about work’ feels like. The back-to-back status meetings. The sporadic chat pings. The endless emails.
So don’t be surprised when the local multiplex is bulging with superheroes, horror films, and cartoons.
Ravenously hungry, I ordered a burger. And to drink? A beer.
Basically, nothing is going the way we want right now.
Across the country, the push to restrict teaching about race and gender equity includes library books that conservative parents and lawmakers say are divisive and serve to indoctrinate students with a leftist ideology.
I am interested in the act of unlanguaging — opening up the world’s global “lingua franca”, the English language and its pre-existing systems, ideologies, western hegemony, and wounds to arrive at new poetics rooted in untranslatability. Can my unlanguaging get me to a place where language feels interior and safe — like an utterance to self?

Times have changed, folks. Drug isn’t a dirty word anymore. It’s high-class therapy.
Our city has been shaken, and no one can make sense of this tragedy.
Bombogenesis describes when a storm undergoes a sudden and significant drop in atmospheric pressure, transforming it into a…bomb cyclone.
You’re progressive in one way and you’re still making that f***ing backward story about seven dwarfs living in a cave together…
I was born this way: unsatisfied.
The fact is: you don’t know me.
You better cook the fucking bacon right!
Hugs discouraged but condoms available.
