A Bolt from the Blue

Charles Bernstein - Three or Four Things I Know about Him (2'29"). Performed at the Anthology Film Archive on 3 April 1977. Whole set here. Lots more Bernstein at PennSound. Previously on Lipstick of Noise. • This is the fifteenth and final section of the version of the poem published at the start of Content's Dream (Sun & Moon, 1986; reprint here). • From the previous section: "The move fom purely descriptive, outward directive, writing toward writing centered on its own wordness, its physicality, its haecceity (thisness) is, in its impulse, an investigation of human self-sameness, of the place of our connection: in the world, in the word, in ourselves."
