Re[s/v]olutions

I resolve…
to trouble myself, to trouble self, to trouble trouble;
to paint it black, learn to fiddle for when it burns;
to light the first match, throw the first brick;
to not allow myself the all-too-easy distractions of comfort, happiness;
to devalue false values (fame, wealth, celebrity, knowledge, security);
to destroy all metaphysics;
to maintain a critical attitude, especially toward my own values;
to live in fear in order to engage in beautiful and meaningful work;
to not dumb it down, not snob you out;
to continue the work of de-disciplining;
to not abdicate responsibility;
to not give credence to the delusions of binary thinking, to know that binary thinking is not thought;
to demand justice;
to expect violence.
