directives

directives from Zaurus, around 15 years ago

http://www.alansondheim.org/directive3.jpg
commands of some sort, or at least descriptions of state:
i cannot r - remember? i cannot remember what?
from: i can - disappearance, but a form of ground, grounding:
it is the same i - the same speaker? the same in any case?
in the lower right - almost unreadable - of the same:
in other words, flattened, exhausted
the key - = = = - as if a division or barrier
- as if a diacritical mark - continuation - circulation

from the turtle program - coagulation or tree centered:
yes, a tree(4,48,30) - an escape - hexagonal network -
indefinite - i'd say fairly extensive - but the center -
collapse - multiply connected - stalks -
it's here the growth is evident - as if there were growth -
the cursor's off somewhere - it won't return -
i'm sure of it -

here we are - 1,2,3 - title gives it away - internettext
islands of longwaves shortwaves - the interface -
as if things followed reasonably in order -
as if there were order in the unruly - falling apart
entries apparently going to text -
in the form of a collocation - through the interface -
filenames - series - then association by date -
this is utterly senseless -
directives going nowhere - shuffled somewhere in an office -
on and on and on - shuttle service - silos, containers -
the whole history of my life's work - containment -
there's no escape - directives - that's all there is -
class diagrams - details - notes - nothing at all -
