So Mere Extent is one of the rebellions
(we respond so well to representation)—
both of mutation and in mutation…
So basically, Partisan (of what is rebellion
in mutation?) allows us to leave ourselves.
In some small weakness, it allows us to shift
and adjust our reception.
Inspired by a prompt from The Found Poetry Review: Select a passage from one of your newspaper articles and replace each noun in the passage with the seventh noun following it in the dictionary. My “newspaper” choice was “Play It Again and Again, Sam” by Alix Spiegel for NPR’s All Things Considered.
