READIN

Jeremy's journal

Listen, this process called poetry is an exercise in imagining memory, and then having that memory snare and cherish imagination.

Language is the atmospheric anomaly our fingers and tongues make happen

por Christopher Higgs
El lenguaje es la excentricidad atmosférica que nuestros dedos y lenguas hacen ocurrir
Date cuenta del cantar de las líneas telefónicas suspendidas, la vibración de antenas de los carros dados ciertas rapideces medias espantosas. --un fenómeno similar, eolian, es ‘flutter’, por causa de vórtices abajo de los cables...

Consider the singing of suspended telephone lines or the vibration of a car antenna at certain mid-gruesome speeds. (A similar aeolian phenomenon is “flutter,” caused by vortices on the leeward side of the wire, distinguished from “gallop” by its high-frequency, low-amplitude motion.) To do so would be synonymous with considering the Kármán vortex street: a term in fluid dynamics for a repeating pattern of swirling vortices caused by the unsteady separation of a fluid’s flow over bluff bodies.
