Chet Cat on “The Aesthetic Attitude”

as Saturn is to erratic
like Ch’ing Yuan I
trumpeted Zen for --
could not commit --

(Adorno saw distance in
philosophy after
losing my Aquinas map) --

years nonetheless I gazed
not notes exactly
but imaginary odyssey of
Twombly
squiggles as text etc.  After
nodding    bloody
john again just
disc.

II.


Chet Cat’s mysterious
test: embrace
buds   live
naïve   live
Testadura   who
hovers hearing
hollow hauntings
receding taste minus
upper area (albeit
broken wings) reflected
amethyst        anyone
clubs     urgency   no
rescue like
fix
