Statement

Bicycle Wheel

 

Eureka! The broken spoke of a wheel unheard, thus spake Zarathustra, bicyclist to the stars, cyclist to the absurd. There must be two wheels, for now, for the unicycle is an appropriative act of consciousness reserved for the speaker alone, thus spake the cyclist, thus spake the downhill traveller with the broken brake. Our resolve wavers as it revolves, the heavenly wheels turn with the tides, the tides turn to wheels within wheels, the girls girdle the revolting roundness. The supermale succeeds where the succubus fell; Jarry and Duchamp spin confusion as the modern bell knells.

 

A lopsided year dawns; one hundred years ago, or more, Zarathustra slashed our tires.

 

The moon spins behind clouds.
