on sound and distances...

"looking at photographs of streets published by the newspaper that showed crowds blown up by volleys of gunfire into something that looked like the star-studded nucleus of a comet or a cloud of sawdust, one could only decipher the molecular tension of an unknown species, but there was no structure for further reading: it was like a silent image of an explosion so far away that its sound waves hadn't yet reached us."

"having left the noise of paris behind, we now traveled across these noble, pristine forests standing guard against the encroachment of city life like a curtain of initiatory silence, behind which the ear, listening half heartedly, already expected to hear another noise."

julien gracq, king cephetua

At a very formal dinner party,
At which I met the woman I have loved the most
In my life, Belleville
Pulled out a sterling silver–plated revolver
And waved it around, pointing it at people, who smiled.
One didn’t know if the thing could be fired.

That is the poem.

freedmen adjusted quickly to the demands of a free-labor economy. In the words of Osthaus, they “made a massive investment of money.” Over the life of the Bank, approximately 70,000 depositors had moved a little over 57 million dollars to and from their accounts.

Voicing and ventriloquation are mediated by linguistic and extra-linguistic contextualization cues; such a cue is defined as any feature of (linguistic) form that contributes to the signaling of contextual Joan-presuppositions.
