Will Alexander and the Ancient Future

Show description for Sunday 2/5/2012 @ 3:00 PM - 6:00 PM

This afternoon, on the 5 o'clock hour, poet, playwright, novelist, Will Alexander. We will be discussing his most recent works, Diary as Sin, Inside the Earthquake Palace: 4 Plays, and Mirach Speaks to His Grammatical Transparents.

“I am not of one persona, not of one mystery, but arrayed with intransigent neurons and timings. … I’ve splintered my own trajectory from a fissioning of threats which have issued from my great monomial leprosy. Which has created in me a raw ascensional vastitude, allowing me further millennia although the bodies about me will all have been destroyed. Because I speak out of blindness I am able to respond to spiritual extremity, which has transmuted dearth and soulless nightmare relations. Of course I am speaking from auto-causality, from an enriched alkaline insurrection, altricial, haunted, partaking cacophony from the cinders of nauseous aeronautics. Because I am Mexican and Seminole I breed schisms, I breed eloquent ransacking laws." -

Rosanna Galvez from Diary as Sin
