Cluster index: David Rosenberg

Pastmodern art.

David Rosenberg: ‘We’re not seeing through or onto the surface: we are resisted.  By what?  By the plant, a species we know doesn’t need us and lived long before us—as inviolate in its existence as bigger species than ours, like trees.  True, we move around, but they too spread their species, and they are necessarily aware of the smaller ones that live on, in, and by them. ‘

Desnos and Warsh.

David Rosenberg: ‘Lewis finds the root note in Night of Loveless Nights at the tender bottom of its surrealist chords: “lover/ whose pain never dies.” I think we first heard it in our own neighborhood from Ted Berrigan, who might translate dream for pain.’
