setyembre at ilang katapusan

ilang yugto ang nagwakas bagamat hindi pa napopormal. sa aba kong tantsa, huling mga linya (dibuho at salita) ko na ito sa isang publikasyon. ganoon talaga. nagwawakas ang mga bagay. wala namang hindi natatapos. narito ang dalawang huling dibuho, lumabas at nailimbag ang una, hindi ang ikalawa.





narito naman ang ilang simula. maganda ang weekend dahil may dumating na mga aklat. gulok pa ang pa-epek na ginamit kong pangbukas. wala rin kasing malapit na gunting o cutter.






nariyan naman pagkatapos ng cut ang huling ambag na artikulo hinggil sa filipino bilang asignatura. samantalang may inaantay pang alternatibong midyang pumayag na maglabas ng [ilang] shit ko. update: bago matapos ang araw, up na ang artikulong "Ang Walang Modo at ang Walang Galos: Hinggil sa Collection ni Abad." hanggang dito muna at apir. hanggang sa muli. ihahabol ko ang bagong disenyo ng aking tumblr (hindi tumblog ok?), kasi wakas ito ng simula ng wakas ng simula wateber da fvck dat means. kbye.

Huling tula ni Victor Jara

isinulat daw ito sa concentration camp, kinabisa at itinakas ng ibang bilanggong pulitikal; isinulat ng makatang Chileanong si Victor Jara ilang saglit bago siya paslangin noong Setyembre 17, 1973; aking isinalin sa parehong petsa, makalipas ang 41 taon. pasintabi na lamang kung may nauna na.

Limanlibo kaming
Nakakulong dito sa sulok ng bayan
Limanlibo kami
Ilan sa amin dito ang nagkalat sa bansa?

graduate colloquium weekend, erasure presentation

as mentioned [earlier], i discuss [Nihil Vers: ode to deCo] this coming weekend, sept 20, at the cal graduate colloquium. book of abstracts with programme schedule, [downloadable]. after the *** is the abstract with the necessary hyperlinks (the abstract is included in the linked pdf file, pero, of course, no links sa stuff). also, an announcement: five three copies of nihil vers left, for those who reserved a copy, please drop me an email, an sms, a pm, or communicate in whatever manner, if you are still interested, so i keep a copy for you. i might print another batch, emphasis on *might*, but the next batch of copies might be cheaper and, what, uglier, than the first edition. kidding aside, i am uncertain whether i'll print another batch because the prints are limited: 40 copies, 20 different prints, only 2 copies per print. and i have to fund other projects and, again, produce limited copies, so i that they're out there, for whatever purpose they may serve. also, i *might* bring a print of the set of the recent Kritika Kultura collab, but i won't sell it, i'll just show it for the benefit of those who haven't seen it yet, since, as of the moment, the kk site is having some sorta problem. so, please drop by and try to [pre-register], kasi limited ata ang lunch or something. thank you. see you.

Omitted Texts, Overwritten Codes and E-rased Works: A Cutback
by Tilde Acuña

Three years may be too short a time since my first venture into erasure, but I think it merits introspection as much has changed in my manner of engagement. In 2011, “eraserase002” was published in Under the Storm: Anthology of Contemporary Philippine Poetry. Admittedly, I responded to the call for submissions with drafts that I consider in-progress, since editors Khavn dela Cruz and Joel Toledo say they look for “wasak” poems.
     In 2012, a set with the aforementioned work came out in the erasures anthology but the words get in the way, assembled by Adam David. I thought I made a naïve mistake by erasing Brecht, but on hindsight, I re-think and re-consider that the project somewhat puts into practice his verfremdungseffekt. Only, it does not and I am making excuses for youthful forays I enjoyed.
     Kritika Kultura No. 23 includes “Madrid 1884” and “Tondo 1892,” collaborative works with Dennis Aguinaldo. Preceding the aforesaid sets are entries in a picture dictionary, a larger work-in-progress with Aguinaldo: “bookworm two,” “flog two” and “workhorse two,” published in the online journal transit. The “eraserase” set and these recent works differ in execution, as the latter makes use of webpages as source text and of digitally rendered drawings as liquid paper (whiteout) or pentel pen (black out).
     Finally, a project—building on insights from previous ones—attempts to enact violence on something I deem violent. In Nihil Vers: ode to deCo, I censor a document that aims to censor expression and suppress basic rights, in the fashion of industrial band Laibach's strategy that Zizek calls “over-identification,” which exaggerates dominant ideologies as a means of exposition.
     Thus, my practice of obliterating texts evolved from an ekphrastic, quasi-artistic play; to a collaborative reflection on layers of meaning-making; and finally to a critical interrogation and outright mockery of ridiculously repressive policies, censored and pushed to its extremes through defacement via erasure.

Huwag Hayaang Mapawi ang Sandaling Maaliwalas

Huwag Hayaang Mapawi ang Sandaling Maaliwalas
aking malayang salin ng tula ni Adam Zagajewski

Huwag hayaang mapawi ang sandaling maaliwalas
Pabayaang tumagal ang matingkad na kuru-kuro
kahit halos puno na ang pahina ng umaandap na liyab
Hindi pa natin napapantayan ang ating mga sarili
Mabagal lumago ang kaalaman tulad ng ngipin
Sungki pa rin ang tayog ng sangkatauhan
sa itaas ng puting pinto
Mula sa malayo, ang masiglang tinig ng trumpeta
at ng awiting tulad ng kuting kung tumiklop
Hindi nahuhulog sa kawalan ang anumang lumilipas
Ipinalalamon pa rin ng hurnero ang uling sa apoy
Huwag hayaang mapawi ang sandaling maaliwalas
Sa matigas at tigang na bagay
Kailangan mong lilukin ang katotohanan
