My cut-up diddy:
-lonely on my way home,
on the street, having conversation.
I drop my eyes and rest boyishly on my hands, I slowly near my building. Stillness.
I don't have to speak. You're No. 7, she said. I pay attention.
this sets me free. Like meditation.
I closed the door.
Now for inquiring minds:
"The cut-up technique was invented by Brion Gysin January 19, 1916 - July 13, 1986 who was a painter, writer, poet, and performance artist born outside of London.
This technique is also known as fishbowling, is an aleatory literary technique, or genre in which text is cut up at random and rearranged to create a new text."
Gysin introduced writer William S. Burroughs to the technique at the Beat Hotel. The pair later applied the technique to printed media and audio recordings in an effort to decode the material's implicit content, hypothesing that such a technique could be used to discover the true meaning of a given text. Burroughs also suggested cut-ups may be effective as a form of divination saying, "When you cut into the present the future leaks out."Burroughs also further developed the "fold-in" technique.
"After one look at this planet any visitor from outer space would say "I want to see the manager." -William S. Burroughs
