>From Ground zero (second version): unreadable


"In your world, reading is an act of suicide, I refuse to
participate in such dirt where nothing is said but ugly
stylistics that infuriate me. Reading and writing are not
only dirty in your world, but dirt, garbage, technological
ruin. You have nothing to off, you never have had anything
to offer, I say hello, I say goodbye. And not a Sirrah in
your world."

Yes, you're right, this is a melange, debris, not even the
work of debris, apropos of empty ideas, sterility; I can't
begin to debate this. I create fury and anger for the
reader to be sure. I give nothing in return. It's violent
and selfish on my part. It's a defense against saying
anything at all. You've known this all along. You've found
me out. After more than eleven thousand files at the site,
there's nothing more I can do. Did I already say that? Do
I take up space? I go from hunter to shunted, from
discover to coverer, from explorer to deplorable. No word
is an occasion, no sentence a gift. I took Ground zero
(second version) and ground it into an alphabetic raster
for nothing left to do. It doesn't even make sense. If you
write a paper that contributes to the greater good of any
reader or create an interactive work of literature that
enthralls and extends knowledge and pleases you have gone
farther than I could have ever hoped to. Surely. For me,
I abjure absolutely nothing, certainly nothing acceptable.
And my world writing is wrong for years, yet yourself,
you mark me zero, put in zoo.
