Cleaving Bolaño

Argentine Surrealism
—for Roberto Bolaño

marcel duchamp—in argentina
a french writer's—relationship to power
provocations—weird imagery
peron-throwdown digressions—conversations
characters falling—off the radar screen
a visit to a chat-group—a cemetery suddenly
beginning to speak again—in vain
surrounded by an aura—of vibrating
possibly malignant—verbal energy
a dictator’s face—full of brief flickerings
anecdotes of—borges labyrinths
evita peron—propped-up in a
throne—stinking with formaldehyde…
