[read the free pdf]

This sixth volume of Mr. Purdom's critically ignored formal confessional language flarf performance art epic combines plain English with found and invented words in syntactically ambiguous and grammatically inappropriate configurations of incomprehensible sentimental angst-ridden romantic religiosity inexplicably divided into two twelve-poem chapters titled "Misinterpretations" and "San Francisco." Not recommended.

[read the free pdf]

The vocabulary in this 10th volume of Mr. Purdom's formal confessional performance art epic was entirely misappropriated from three sources: the Wikipedia and Wikiquote entries for "2001: A Space Oddysssey," the Wikipedia entry for "Apocalypse Now," and two speeches from William Shakespeare’s "Henry V," a process described by Mr. Purdom as "authoritarian conspiracy and combat language recontextualized as autobiographic eros."
