The Desire to Show Is Destruction

Lordy, I got multiple google hits on yard cow since posting Planet's cow two days ago. In the past two years we've had two freak snowstorms, an earthquake, a deracho, and we're about to absorb a hurricane. Weirder, United just finished with 58 points, an total I'd have bet my left nut against at season's start, they have the third highest point total in MLS heading into MLS' sillyass and rinkydink playoffs and - here's the thing - they suck! Then there's this whole motherfucking POTUS 12 wetfart that won't stop, I can't stop, so that new Matmos song above not only prompts a Matmos cascasde, that song is Theme Song of Our Constant and Forever Clusterfuck.




Garrett Caples

the desire to show is destruction
in lessons forgot before learned
no shrunken heads hang by wires
no mourning songs of half-remembered
shutters open the width of an eyelash
it is enough for vision to run
its finger along, for access to steal
from forbidden shores the still-cold
beams of night and pack them in ice
but a child couldn’t live here nonetheless

in the morning is come a bell that summons
a fortune that reads she will soon
cross the water and the intended instructions
which may not florish after all
she leaves a painting outside her room
and in the morning it’s gone
and not one word is spoke between them
but her father carries it to his grave
the desire to show is destruction
and we are not hung with skins
we must follow internal echoes
commit ourselves to memory



  1. I really thought the fab cow would rouse Jim H. Where is he? Where are you, Jim? I MISS you!

    1. Possibly...

      it is NOT

      about you

      who can say?


  2. Third highest point total in MLS, exhibit A as to why no MLS team is in danger of ever winning CONCATENATIONCAF's pretend big cup.
