The psychological issue of asking. Why we don't
ask-what makes us ask?

By returning meaning to its primary
forms such as letters we unearth the
inexact domain which constitutes the heart.

The other side of not asking is the right
to refuse, which is to choose, which ultimately
relates to the aesthetic, discriminatory function.
The dimensions "when" and "where" become the
obsessive"if," that is, if there is"if"
then there is "if not" and a story begins which
is transformed into the measurement of time.


Ron Silliman's-my writing = my writing-
resembles Derrida's "trace" except that
this presentation is tautological and
paradoxically pragmatic.
