looting

unique: in that the great cancan o'
h'americana spandex english...
  † † †is littered with acronyms...
 † † † † † † a minor observational point...

also... that there's a europe
as confined to scandinavia...
 there's most certainly western europe...

a southern europe...
 † † † † † † although... clogging up the "detail"
with spain... reconquista
 † and not the shame...
 † † † † † † † a barricade of goths...
 † † † † † † † † † † † † † †leftover in the bizarre
gesticulation of a history...
 and at: a history...

 † † † † † † † † that the italians
 † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † †cannot be the heritage
of ancient rome: given
the cappuccino is a "nuance"...
 †otherwise the greeks are bankrupt...
their history worth of envy is
being exhausted...

 † † † † † † † † †there's a western europe...
there's a... southern europe...
 † † † † † † † but of an eastern europe...
such a piquant vogue of vocab that has
to cherry-pick into existence
an estonia and the latvians...
 
 † † † † † † † central, europe?
 † † † † † † † † † † †all that is germany...
beside the fact that prussian-germany...
and the prussians could be bundled
up with the other baltic states...

little o' czech republic...
 † † †a minor ally poland...
 † † † † † † † † † †some alleviated circumstance
of an oriental allure within
the confines of russia...

 † † † † † † it breaks my heart
to see england unfathomable...
 † † † † † † † currently without a near
perfect engagement strategy...
 † † †coming to the fore with a headache
of diamond-studded gills...
 † † † †that there are
bipartisan "rats" and the ship is
sinking...
 † †otherwise the provincial aspect
of weeding out...
detestable aspects of cosmopolitanism...

that London could be treated as:
London-London... rather than London-England...
because of the great yawn
of the heliocentric adventure of sci-fi fun...
i.e. what is the copernican west?
what is the copernican east?

 † † † perhaps a return to some sort of
language formality...
to escape with a poetry is hardly
a reconstitution of the soul
to a modern letter: dear sir... yours faithfully...
or a very modern hello! kind regards!

europe as a claustrophobia...
 † † † † † † it's such a limiting delight of...
that there somehow was...
a premeditation...
 † †to kill with premeditation allows the status:
murder...
but to kill by accident is a "mere":
homicide...

 † † † † † † †such grave consequences...
the culprit and the tool: but also the thought
involved...

but is there something self-deprecating
about english humour?
a pride of borrowed history...
unlike the interlude of non-existence
bound to Poland...
 † † † †this... castrated figment of my old
imagination...
 † † † † † † † †rule britannia referring
to a period prior to the empire and a ref.
to an english-spanish exchange...

then again...
 † how did the spanish: then not the spanish...
create... a post-racial south america...
the tinged copper and auburn
lure of the delight...
there must be "something" sobering
bout an anglo-saxon realism...

that there's a tinge of taming the viking
horde... there's no share
in "grief" should the west arrive
at being licked by a mongolian
extract of prose...

 † † † † † but always the very
formidable tow of the culprit cog
and: †homo in machina...
 † † † † † † †easier to posit a god-phantom
ex-, as that gravity in extension orbit
linear of Pluto...

 † † † † † † †postcards from Saturn... anyone?
otherwise, this... simply...
the english have exhausted the concept
of world... of geocentrism...
 † † † † † †
but then the forever soap-opera demand
of the local affairs...
how heliocentrism abides by a breath...
side by side with geocentrism
of the soap opera...
 † † † † † † †to have to heave
a concern for the stars and the moon cycles...
this finite basis of a rooting...

 † † † †that the forerunner of / for the h'american
presidential candidacy
looks simply bored.... or rather...
unexpecting... while the first lady
is so glued to reciting the autocue
like a evil...
wild-eyed and pure ergonomic...
 †a jeffrey dahmer seems to
have a more sedated glee of the eyes...

the first lady is... poison of the soul...
 her eyes are cobweb knitting fatamorgana...
bringing to the table of
the arrogance of multiculturalism...
it's hardly a heritage incorporated...
there's the breaking of bones
in how to move forward...
at least the food served by the indians
or the turks has made it
as a pop staple on the high street...
it's very common to want to learn
a disguise of... the incoming horde...
the reception party will be glad
at being fed...
 † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † chimichurri:
give me curry... a loose translation...
 † † † † † † † † †
what am i to offer these isles when...
what all these others...
arrivals make such...
 †pronounced additions to a life worth living...
turkish barbers... indian takeaways...
such prominence...

a work ethos in the shadows...
a shadow for a body...
a reconciliation with the body-work
of father...
i am forever to test the hobby market...
these formidable words like:
pineapple... like mango...
 † † † some variation of "foreign" inventions...
never the placid anglo- prefix
titillating the paranoia: non-bilingual schizoid...

a dozen europes and a historical agony
surrounding the base narrative "primordial":
of... †i dare say... byzantine-&-darwinistic...
that the byzantines reworked a more
fashionable period before... settling for the laurel
before the shock & awe of the ottoman conquest...
or that darwinism is as much
a lesson in history as it is a lesson in biology...
that... the latter... is...
such a stereotypical predominance
of expected behaviour...

that the former is a... overt over-simplification
of a desire for work, wheat and time...
or a designation of space...
it's not that darwin is not a dickens...
but at least... the world is still inaccurate
with a dickensian take on:
with this here england...
arriving at the 20th century...
cricket players being dubbed...
fancifully: the tourists...
shouldn't all english people have
that affix?

 † † † † † † † † † † †there's that...
as there's also...
 † † † † † † † † †the copernican revolution
has been made impossible by someone as far removed
as william burroughs...
who insist... the ancient egyptians knew
of the heliocentric demands...
that the geocentric model was backward
thinking... that the ancient greeks
were the only people to ever think:
and we have only moral plagiarism to mind...
and a plagiarism of eureka!
or that thinking can escape
the narrative and riddle the heights
with spontaneity...

 † †this prolonged... western european...
admiration for a people that are currently...
made into an economic scrutiny bollock-riddling...
imagine my disconcerting: hier und jetzt!

 the wooden stairs are creaking...
there's a strain most unfathomable...
like that associated with a cavern...
and a man's eye having to invest in making
a bridge a reality...
 that history is a reflective tool...
nothing sinister or military in nature...
a beer could be considered warm piss...
a bucket-load of camel spit...
should i guise it as such?

 † † † † † to heave a beginning...
somehow i can't find... a work-around
of a western europe...
 spain is still catholic...
 † † † † † † ireland... well... whatever...
the same self-depreciating humour
is to be expected...
 † † † † †anything serious...
forward moveable and come along
has to be littered with that...
fable of the protestant work ethic...

it's impossible to have a father
who's an underpaid technician in the field...
whereas... mongrel romanians
are elevated to the status of
manager...
 † † † † † pitch-perfect: ethno-central...
on the continent where
there are: "some differences"...
 † zu liben unter deutsche wie deutsch'...
well... to live among the english
is to have to forever retain an otherness...
a foreign attitude of...
down the line... the capacity to...
integrate with a cousin or two being
towed...
if you knew a thing or two about
immigrant poles...
they're not very... forthcoming...
they are so hard riddled on the integration
project...
there is no in-group preference
other people a priori stress...

 so... fallacy and fake number 1...
 † † † so much for reading a milan kundera
essay...
 in the context: that newspapers are
to be read!
 † it's impossible to concern oneself
with the concept of a newspaper as
aligned with: not being read...
force-fed turkey glut and baron fat...

 † † † † help the pope to sing!
 † † † † † † † † † † † †it's not like...
there wasn't a shortening reaction
phase to re-orientate the dynamism of: future "lore"...
europe is such a little place...
made even oh so much more tiny...
provincial... solipsistic...
by these island-dwelling folk that
the english tourists care to concern themselves
as being...

that the english language
is thoroughly recognised as the lingua franca
of old...
 to tease learning some arabic or mandarin
is a question of aesthetic...
old fool and bigger than the lost "little"
of a worship...
such gravity... concerning the names...
Angevin...
 † † † † † † † †Merovingian... Capulet...
 † † † † † Stuart... Windsor...
 † †my own sorrow: this common name...
 † † † † † well...
 † † † † † † † † † † † †all crippling demands...
big or small...
 † † † † † † † † † hell... there are bigger onces...
there's no known house of David or or Solomon...
such a borrowed gesticulated at...
the shadow drawn...
 † † † † † † † † † i forfeit!
from the ant people that abide...
to the swollen eye sore of blindness i tow:
a recreational soviet pact of: me's stealing Siberia!
borys!
