In March of 1776, wee robots appeared in Concord, Massachusetts.
Composed entirely of tools, they searched suburban American farms
for mass murderer Lance Cole. On March 12th, he was found riding
in the woods. His last words: “Shun biography! Learn is! Learn of!”
Northerners, his ghost searches for you on the road to Dartmouth.
A thievery at Harvard University in 1833 resulted in a worldwide
search for Howard Jay. Found in Iowa—huffing over a hill—
by Don Bieber, a journalist, Jay addressed the thievery via song:
“Shun biography—just learn is and of!”
Bieber shared the song with just six people: a jazz man, a critic,
a metamodernist author (Ronald Abramson), an editor,
a Dartmouth graduate (Ray Swensen), and a poet (Roger Trout).
And the attorney for Harvard—who shared it with the world.
Born “Seth Abramson” in 1976, I can see that every word circles back:
free; Abramson; jazz.
A series of phrases, too: text not available; net plus net; the wide world.
Wide world is a lie.
The world is only one spot in the universe. Just one. A precise location.
Ogle it and see which.
Every single video of a suburb—the exclamation of silly Americans—
is hypertext. A collection of images. References. An ebb.
“Seth Abramson” is hypertext. One one six six eight three two zero
zero zero seconds. Three hundred ninety six thousand “results.” Plus
a thousand poems.
Composed entirely of standard-issue ecstasies and phrases
from the encyclopedia—view these here—Seth Abramson is protocol.

literary contacts, and remixed poets. More Iowa, more Wisconsin.
