I'm guest lecturing Zeena's class on tuesday, so two days of hooky (& three consecutive days of Mills) is probably pushing it. Maybe, though.

In the beginning, there were rocks
and on those rocks with harder rocks
we learned to make a million bruises
to spell out things like "we were here" and "watch your water"

he sat and thought about obedience
he had resolved that, of the two kinds,
the kind that takes every message of order, rule, law as error
that everybody who passes along these messages
that loathes the buildings
that contradicts the inner voice
that resists, in short, was his
and the other kind...
how could it be?

"try to keep in touch with forms of disorder that have been successful in other places so that you can adopt them to local conditions. you can't think of everything."
