A line from Ada Lovelace
The gravitational force of
some stars means collectors
of raw information may have
trouble sleeping. Such a
theory has to answer two
questions—are the gravitational
waves energetic & plentiful? &,
is the power of your passion
what logicians would refer to
as a three-step process? I visited
a psychic. A smidgen of drama-
turgy is occasionally inevitable.

A master terrorist autographed by Newt Gingrich is hiding somewhere in a herd of elephants.
This provokes a dissonance that involves political parties, sport footwear outlets, a trip to & from Campá, the insatiability of consumerism, Washington’s alliances in the Middle East, a text in deep charcoal, being led in mock triumph through the streets of Rome, the occasional American alt-rocker group, the Baader-Meinhof phenomenon, & an odd optimism, as well as more than three million pages of digitized New Zealand newspapers.
On one of those pages, approximately two million, five hundred in—which puts it at the beginning of the 1990s—a precursor to clickbait claims that a herd of elephants, autographed by a master terrorist, may be hiding somewhere within Newt Gingrich.
