Happy Birthday William Seward Burroughs, El Hombre Invisible, a figure who looms large through the last half of the 20th Century counterculture. Seeping into literature, painting, film and music. Whose image greets me every morning I wander into my own living room, as my dreams awake.
An iconlclast who himself became an icon, explorer of the outer boundaries of culture and identity. Happy birthday Uncle Bill.
Everything is Permuted ( a cut-up)
Nothing is True.
Everything is Permuted.
The word writes and re-writes itself.
It is no coincidence that the means of magic is found in the words we use.
Language is a virus.
let them intermingle.
Everything is permuted.
Mutating and metamorphosing.
A soundless hum.
Forged prisms of uniqueness.
Mosaics of Juxtaposition.
Tools of precognition or subversion.
Everything is permitted..
' Take the air. '
There are no accidents.
Although it's very difficult to get it right.
Get with it or just say silent.
Allies wait with heavy commitments.
Eveything is permuted.
( happy birthday; William S. Burroughs)
