The French invented the bidet. I think the author was, like, 25 when she wrote it, so it’s a pardonable crime! That is tight, impregnable, everywhere. I want to found a country where everybody feels. They are full of typos.

But there was a lot of uses of “signification” “meaning” and other phenomenological terms that made the whole book feel like of lit grad school-y. I wanted to like this book. No trivia or quizzes yet.

Which dow to say, the body is not the servant of the mind, right. It is kind of odd. Using such a vague word as beauty requires a corresponding concreteness. Though, I think that to write honestly about slaughterhouses it makes sense to also speak about bodily fluids.

I can sympathize with them, but those people are not my problem. This is one of the more disturbing and disgusting books of poetry I’ve ever read. I look at the titles of the poems an I just can’t get into this book.

The Cow : Ariana Reines :

That body has veins and is a little rosy at the teat. They are very Catholic even though they are very atheist.

Are babies jizz for girls?

The Cow | Boston Review

I looked up and was assuaged. The heroes of France, even from a hundred years ago, are more shocking and radical to me than so many things, and I am amazed. Ariqna rid of the head, with its delusions, controlling everything.

It is reine meditation on disgust. The Knocker administers a stun: My mom knew French when she was very young and then she forgot it. But I’m very interested in her work, and I’m glad to have read her.

The Historical paw-print: thoughts on Ariana Reines’s The Cow

Again, I’m away from the book yanked up by my beard. I reinfs not a cool person but I have done some things. What does poesy care.

You reinws got to force yourself to want to. The horse flopped off the truck like wet carpet, rolled a little ways before stopping. Hospital workers ariiana prison guards are afraid all the time of being infected by the diseased people they handle. As well as writing, performing and teaching, Reines is also a medievalist and professional astrologer; the mystical intertwining of which go some way towards understanding her sibylline poetics that shift fluidly between multiple styles, epochs and registers: We have always mended or patched them up, as something in which we still live.


I think about the beard of Mohammad and that someone told me once that they have part of it wrapped in gold leaf in a museum in Turkey.

I have been on kind of a poetry bender but find it hard to write about poetry. I have written that. The golden calf, the red heifer, Ferdinand the Bull, the sacred cow, these things are important. To make a book that is an organ.

How can we read these images, then, when our eyes are accustomed to unseeing such entanglements; when the rational view of bodies is that they are discrete containers of resources? This book is seriously amazing. OK, that is a slaughterhouse on the cover of The Cowand those are dead cattle. The inclusion of BSE was masterfully done, and in no way underplays the irony of a disease that consumes the brain because livestock had been made to consume other animals in a strange mindfuck twist on the circle of life.

Even if you already like French literature, this might be interesting for you. What meat is supposed to stand for, ipso facto, is important.
