-------------------------------------------------- For the society of the spectacle I have defined by contact the mighty ulcer Environmental stimulation forging into the gelatin like Tissue which is the grey matter the brain ways Ways of acquiring identities A mass of filnsd meahsured and mendfht nouns The continuous production of images The continuous production of images Inspiration received issued into the waiting jumpy river of synapsis charges the underlying current is slow the underlying current is steady Fed by the spring. Nostalgia, for a pre-conceived. Pre-letus of a cultural utopia Cultural Utopia Feb by the flash of neon advertisements Fed by the other people with their other things Inspired by the desire for identity Inspired by the desire for identity To make ones self a-part A class-less society will have no need for art A class-less society will have no need for sex For the constant defining of/by separation Civil-lie-sation is separation, dis-ease Sex is dis-ease, separation Art is the re-telling of IS Art is re-construction When all know IS--why make it? Art * Society * Sex will be outdated 'ideas' For now for now For the Society of the Spectacle Defined images are use-full Let us get in order Let us make some order Just us Justice Just us Who finances you?
