Dewey is a new kind of subject,
with an old history,
and you perceive him in stages:
First as words, a reading experience;
as you get closer, as a looking-at-life experience;
then, holistically, as a thinking experience.
If you linger over his life and art a little,
give yourself to it,
you’ll get something from it.
with his audacious fast-food pop bricolage,
is to breeze through him and this blog,
with your miasma,
but that’s like keeping your iPod on at a concert.
You get a sense of what’s going on,
but you’re preprogrammed and sticking with that.
