another A.

Phenomenology of spirit: Whenever my mind turns absently to Kojève, which is surprisingly often, he is played by Theo Kojak. There stands the prophet, gesturing before Lacan, Bataille, Merleau-Ponty, Queneau, Breton, Sartre (?). His head shines. The Battle of Stalingrad was the battle between the Right Hegelians and the Left Hegelians, he intones. Who loves ya, baby?


  1. The owl of Minerva takes its flight only when the sunglasses are worn at night.

  2. Whatever I talk about with her
    the conversation always comes around to babies
    and Hegel.
    And for him, boats.
