Drone Fascicle is an annual
periodical for poetics and the poetic. This first number, SENSES/LOVE,
is a curation of Ruskin Watts‘ and
presents a convivio, confronting material by Axel S. Parrot, Bysshe
Berkeley and R.Eustace Dart, who all begin by discussing a sonnet
and particular fragments by a German-writing poet, Theo Reiz de Man.
The essays and
emerging poems soon enough diverge onto topics of wants and consum-mating;
on translation, reproduction,
metrics; on poetry as everyday allegory,
that is of thoughts and things taken for granted, as both the theo-logical
and trade-itional, both goods and page-white godd– as “sonnet
sweet/ fettered“ (Keats).
Within such a
binding and a severing, like a book and song, something is released
and realised; this is to >give an idea<, energy or nature,
meaning in the mind, or sense in astro-gnomic constellation – as “starlight/
that speaks familiar language“ (Baudelaire).
To start and
to escape, to save and to delete, to copy and incorporate, take
down and take in, engaged and discharged: it is always ‘love‘ that
provides the inverted commas, defines the thing, the current releases.
In a personal
correspondence, sense is attachments and stigma attachment. The
branding of the handler is borne pent in
matter. Are these auto-prismatic,
line-breaking themes of monos pros monon, Self itself? – no, of Mona,
rather, of m-adonai-a: of violence and atonement, beauty, grace and grace.
