    What the fuck is it with people’s aversion to poetic writing these days? When people write in disjointed language they’re trying to paint a picture of states of consciousness that normal linguistic structures can’t possibly communicate – illuminating the limitations of traditional language, and acting as a psycho-active agent – creating a headspace that’s akin to that of the author. It’s kind of similar to how experimental musicians eschew traditional song structures in favor of protracted drone-scapes that alter the senses and uplift the listener toward the beyond.

    Henry Miller did it brilliantly, largely inspired by the sex and death obsessed French poets he worshipped. William S. Burroughs did it as well, and if you’re going to trash anyone, trash him, not Cedric Bixler or Grant Morrison as they actually have a thread of narrative in their work, Burroughs never did.

    When you fail to recognize this, and just accuse these people of being lazy and incomprehensible, you put your horrific ignorance on display. Yeah, fuck poetry. S.T.E.M. forever. We should all be fucking robots. Everything has to make sense, and be easily divided into one category or another. Look at the wonderful society that type of thinking has created for us. I’ve personally never read a Grant Morrison graphic novel that I thought didn’t “make sense”. Then again, I practice magick, fuck around with astral projection, use psychedelic drugs, etc. I’m constantly in a state of mind that very few ever achieve. Guy’s just way over your head, and will continue to be, until you get out of it.

    I’m going to go ahead and assume this was made by a butthurt Batman fan. One who can’t cope with Morrison touching their fat sacred cow in lewd and uncomfortable ways.
