On the poetics of departure

"And there are some who scorn this poetry of departures/And say “Escape by staying where you are;/A man is what he thinks he is and can/Find happiness within.” How nice to be born a man./The tourist in space and time, emotion or sensation,/Meets many guides but none have the proper orientation./We are not changing ground to escape from facts/But rather to find them. This complex world exacts/Hard work of simplifying; to get its focus/You have to stand outside the crowd and causus."

Still imbued with new knowledge and acquaintances, Sam Renseiw pursued to depart on a long and windy road. View the sensuous promenade back into urbanity by clicking here or on the links above. (patafilm # 632,04'13'', 23 MB, Quicktime/mov - other versions at
