return of the repressed in the age of avantgarde robots

for eric

creating and smashing ideas of high and low was a good
business but it cost followers much unneeded pain: they
did get tenure but at what cost? to take up gymnastics at
their age was therapeutic but not glorious. Still, that is the
law of succession: first, the French have a good party, then
the Germans clean up. then the weather messes up
the plumbing and the proletariat rises again with tools:
they were waiting patiently in the unconscious for transfer
