His constant cycle of first stating
then negating serves to show
the subjectivity of our perception.
Of course, this too is false.
The constant referents to body
parts are purely a comedic
trope. He means to nullify
the normal marriage of the reader
to the work.
The themes of language as realitym
of loss, of pop cultural epiphany
are all a form of plagiarism, borrowed
from the dead and dying.
He is the transparent geologist
chiseling brick from his own grave.
His spelling and his penmanship,
however, are impeccable.
-Neal Miller, 1994
