Some Other Deaths of Bas Jan Ader

“Ader dying was stupid. It was, ironically, a triumph of life–a stabilizing gesture that pathetically used the cover of art to integrate the otherwise subversive aberrancy of suicide and/or mistaken death into a common dialogue on “legacy”. Chris Kraus notes, “the future we dream of is always more glorious than the one that transpires.”; mirroring Freud’s assertion that fantasy always manifests in reality as nightmare. Ader’s mistake was that his death was altogether too dreamy, too glorious to be anything but banal.”–Josef Kaplan “We were never together. I remember everything else.” —Walt Whitman “So I can see any and everything. I can talk about everything as a child would. The interior mind versus the exterior. Art proposes an interiority which no longer exists for all of us are molded. The nightmare that I fear most is true”.–Kathy Acker “Can’t believe how hardcore Nirvana was..tricking a baby with money, and the baby drowned, and you can see its wiener…damn.–@boring_as_heck “I must defend/this enormity of desperate tenderness/that, like the world, I received in being born”–Piero Pasolini “Remember the decorous nonviolence/of our formalisms?/That’s when we were whores!”–Anne Boyer “Some years ago – never mind how long precisely – having little or no money in my purse, and nothing particular to interest me on shore, I thought I would sail about a little and see the watery part of the world.– Vannevar Bush“Sons and daughters disappear, are thought dead, then reappear with entirely different faces that should be unrecognizable but aren’t.”–Lynne Tillman “Into the sea/you & me/all the years that no one heard.”–Bas Jan Ader

Books will be shipped NOW

ladies n gents — we do apologize — due to both editors of Flowers & Cream relocating their physical selves throughout December, and with all the holiday delirium – no orders have been sent out since announcing the Anselm Berrigan / JohnΒ Coletti SKASERS book. Thurston was supposed to do it from Massachusetts but DID NOT due to his rocketship never landing so he has sent all books to Elaine, who is living and working (City Lights!) in SF. She has the books and will begin to send out the overdue orders. Again..so very sorry.

Thurston took this photo of Cody Rose-Clevidence at their reading at the Poetry Project in NYC in December (while he was NOT shipping out book orders..urggh). Love love love always…Flowers & Cream

Readings by Anselm Berrigan and John Coletti
Music by a barefoot Thurston Moore

John Coletti is the author of Mum Halo (Rust Buckle Books 2010), Same Enemy Rainbow (fewer & further 2008), and Physical Kind (Yo-Yo-Labs 2005). He recently served as editor of The Poetry Project Newsletter and co-edits Open 24 Hours Press with poet Greg Fuchs. Other recent projects include a collaborative print with artist Kiki Smith (editioned by the Brodsky Center for Innovative Editions at Rutgers University), as well as a libretto for Excelsior (Caught: The Wide Open), an opera composed by Caleb Burhans commissioned by Chicago’s Fifth House Ensemble and premiering in 2013

Anselm Berrigan’s books of poetry include Notes from Irrelevance (Wave), Free Cell (City Lights), and Zero Star Hotel (Edge). He’s a believer in the principle of the impractical invitation, and writes from the noise of that place. His jobs have included teaching, temping, messenging, receptioning, directing the Poetry Project at St. Mark’s Church for a few years last decade, and the current non-paying gig of poetry editor for the estimable Brooklyn Rail.
