    1. It is not you or I. The (Idea) is us created by the adverb, adjectives, and pronoun. They painted us with their concept of how we become.

      Honestly though, the interpretation of the poem is whatever any reader wants to make of it.

      The poem was written 5 years ago and I fixed it and made it relevant to 2021 and beyond. 🙂

      Does this help?

    1. Maybe the question: Was Flarf part of an experiment gone wrong or deliberately on point?
      Whose to say really.

      And speaking of antimatter.

      “Energetically speaking, antimatter is the mirror image of matter, so the two instantly cancel each other out if they come in contact.
      Keeping antimatter isolated from matter is a challenge, of course, because everything on earth is made of matter. The samples have to be stored without ever touching anything at all—even air.”
      ― Dan Brown, Angels & Demons

          1. The mainstream is for tourists.

            “Art is not a mirror held up to reality
            but a hammer with which to shape it.”
            ~Bertolt Brecht

            “The traveler sees what he sees.
            The tourist sees what he has come
            to see.”
            ~ G.K. Chesterton

  1. Happy New Year, Charlie. I am applauding Dr. Flarf’s surgery on those fertile (and frisky) adverbs. 2020 was the anti-year so hopefully you will have a better / great 2021.

    1. The poem was written 5 years ago. The context of the declaration is whatever the reader wants to interpret. I fixed and experimented by moving stuff around. It’s not you its the (Idea) of us, ‘everyone’. That’s pretty much all I can say and answer truthfully. 🙂

      Hope this helped.

  2. …………………………Charlie,

    Thanks for your kindness—–sweet syrup kindness !!!

    sign me up for a dictionary lap dance
    nothing Reader’s Digest
    I want the extra XXX Hustler chubby
    the kind the librarian hands over in a paper bag
    I guess that I’m the only person who knows
    that you have been on your honeymoon
    you asked me about the size of beds in motels
    hope I gave you sound advice
    7 feet tall and growing
    dear sweet Charlie
    FLARF may be the consonance
    between the prophecies
    and your course
    of events
    marriage
    I won’t mention names
    but someone called you
    “the Napoleon of Flarf”
    where is Jung when you need him ?
    anyway,
    the easiest way to deal with Flarf
    is to reinterpret it

    1. A lap-dance called reinterpretation.
      Growing extra napoleon ears
      May motel “I you and me you who”.
      The nothing bag between digest
      and size xxx-hustler.
      The easiest sound that paper makes
      has been consonance
      for Flarf
      and honeymoon librarian prophecies.

  3. Is Flarf able to be packaged, branded and eventually rely on what’s trending?
    Great piece, your work always exercises and exorcises my grey matter.

    1. To answer your question: No. If Flarf does get branded it would most probably lose its value.

      Flarf stands as the underground cousin of avant-garde who would rather be on its own genre. 🙂

      Glad you enjoyed the poem and the visual of what Flarf means in context.

  4. Not only did I enjoy this read, but I learned something new.
    Will you write in Flarf?
    Seems what you wrote here borders on Flarf.
    Perhaps we can never escape some Flarf in our lives?
    Well, Charlie, I’m going to “Flarf Off” now.
    Hope you and yours are safe and well.

    Yes, I adore this!!!!

  5. Oh Charlie, I have missed your irreverent poetic soul and self. Once I dubbed you the Prince of Flarf, add to that being the Ubermeister of Underground Art. Flarf is..you, and your flow is always flarf-ful.
    I do think that a “dictionary lap-dance” aptly conjures your poetic machinations.

  6. Interesting, and you seem to embrace flarf enthusiastically — so go for it proudly and confidently. The next time I am seeking flarf I will know where to look.
