– vejen til Nul Bisser

          

          hver morgen fingeren i munden, er udposningen med betændelse i kæben faldet? nej, den er stor som i går
          vente hele dagen for at se om indsprøjtningen i går virkede, ikke spise piller, så jeg kan holde øje med om smerten vokser, ved sengetid kanyle ned mellem to tænder, sprøjte klorhexidin ned i hulrummet under bagerste højre tand
          mærke smerten vokse af det øgede væsketryk i tandlommen, føle det er en stakket frist, kan ikke rense madrester helt væk hvad jeg end spiser, rester presses ned under tanden og føder bakterier, snart må fremgå, at bakteriedræbende klorhexidin ikke hjælper
          så skal gummen skæres op, så skal tanden trækkes ud, og den næste tand med, som er død, så jeg vil intet have at tygge med i højre side, tygning og udtale bliver et besvær, hvor længe kan jeg trække det?
          udtrækning sker næppe i Rom, tand- og kæbekirurgisk på Riget fordrer en henvisning fra den tandlæge jeg ikke længere har, må jeg hjem til tandlægevagten og dér højlydt understrege, at strålelægerne henviste operation til Riget på grund af smuldrende kæbe efter stråling? skal jeg se en desavoueret vagttandlæge blive afvisende vred og “det styrer du helt selv”-agtig?
          så vente til en dagtandlæge både kan og vil henvise mig, finde mig i mere smerte og større byld, fordi systemet har én bestemt procedure for tandudtrækning, skal jeg bare storme tand- og kæbekirurgiafdelingen på Riget og kræve at blive behandlet?

          stå som en anden idiot med en spidsaffilet kanyle nede i kæberummet, indse at behandlingen er midlertidig, ingen løsning forude hér, paralyserende følelse af unyttigt håb, mit tandsæts fremtid fucked af procedure og min frygt
          et mirakel beder jeg om, men hvorfra? minimum mister jeg mine tænder, maximum dør jeg ikke af blodforgiftning, intet dér imellem og ingen at bede til ud over mig selv.

Returpant- og flaskegenanvendelses-systemet i Danmark

– er det ved at bryde sammen pga. forskellige pant-flasketyper og manglende genanvendelse af returglasflasker?

 

10. december 2021  sandsynliggjorde researcher og journalist Simon Freiesleben i  Podcasten TRANSFORMATOR  hos fagbladet Ingeniøren, at 90% af alle flasker er forsvundet ud af flaskegenbrugssystemet.  Indsamlingen sker overvejende i København, men er stort set ophørt i resten af landet:

I denne uges Transformator kigger vi dybt i glascontaineren, hvor kun et fåtal af de ikke-smadrede flasker reelt bliver genbrugt som de er. Resten smeltes om. Det samme gælder ølflasker, fordi bryggerierne er gået væk fra standardflasken i jagten på et unikt udseende. Så der er flere grunde til, at vores tidligere velfungerende genbrugssystem nu er lagt om til omsmeltning og genanvendelse, hvilket kun er halvt så godt i CO2-regnskabet.


I de dage i december kunne jeg ikke finde andre artikler direkte om problematikken, som ikke var bag en betalingsmur, men tænkte at Ingeniøren er så god en kilde, at Miljøministeriet nok havde noget at sige om sagen. Continue reading “Returpant- og flaskegenanvendelses-systemet i Danmark”

Ingen in-house digter i EU-parlamentet, anklager om elitisme

– “der skal klare, hårde ord til nu i EU. Og digtere sover om dagen, de fleste af dem”.

OF POETRY AND POWER

WELL-VERSED IN POLITICS? Writers Mithu Sanyal, Dmitrij Kapitelman and Simone Buchholz recently suggested adding some beauty to German politics, by establishing the post of parliamentary poet and a scholarship to fund it. Potential laureates could act as an “irritation and disruptive factor,” they said, and at the same time “build bridges.” People who watched Amanda Gorman read her inauguration poem for U.S. President Joe Biden might remember the profound effect — both calming and stimulating — that her piece had on many people, including politicians.

Not ready for rhyme time: German cities from Bergen Enkheim to Rottweil offer scholarships, awards or positions for writers-in-residence. So it does not seem a huge stretch to suggest parliament might do something similar. Katrin Göring-Eckardt, a Bundestag vice president from the Greens, backed the project. But the idea was subject to ridicule and malice on Twitter and in the letters pages of newspapers — in short, in places where beauty is hard to come by. Wolfgang Kubicki, another Bundestag vice president, joined in the criticism, branding the proposal an  “elitist project.” Kubicki is certainly an authority on the subject, as a senior member of the FDP, the self-declared party for high-earners.

Poetic license refused: Bild columnist and in-house poet Franz-Josef Wagner was also not a fan of the idea. He declared that “everyone loves poetry, but not now,” in the midst of a pandemic. He observed that “tears trickle down onto a [poet’s] writing pad,” where “colorful and glittery poetic words, glinting like dust in the light” appear. But what the country needs now are “clear words … Hard, true words,” wrote Wagner. That aside, he noted: “Poets usually work at night. Over several bottles of red wine, during the day they sleep. Not all of them. But most of the ones I know.”

Journal of Poetry Therapy

 

Det gør ikke rigtig noget godt i maven på mig, at poesi/digtning betragtes af nogle som en terapiform. Jeg kan svært forestille mig andet end at det vil være poesi på linje med elevatormusik og optagelser af regnvejr og AUM.

En dag må jeg gå de ulåste artikler igennem. Men kommentarer inviteres forneden, hvis man allerede kender det.

Amazon blokerer US-biblioteker fra at udlåne A-udgivelser

 

“It’s not clear to us that current digital library lending models fairly balance the interests of authors and library patrons,” said Mikyla Bruder, the publisher at Amazon Publishing, in an emailed statement. “We see this as an opportunity to invent a new approach to help expand readership and serve library patrons, while at the same time safeguarding author interests, including income and royalties.”

Hvilket kort sagt betyder, at Amazon ikke vil give udlånsrettigheder til biblioteker, så længe der kan tjenes på en Amazon-udgivet bog.

Hvornår dén grænse nås, ved kun Amazon – og indtil da er læsning af både nye og fortsat-sælgende bøger forbeholdt folk, der har råd til at købe.

The Internet has, of course, given us access to a lot more information — but also made it possible to erect new walls around some of it.

“Society pays a huge price,” says Michelle Jeske, city librarian at the Denver Public Library and president of the Public Library Association. “How many different platforms does a person have to subscribe to to be able to read all the things they’re interested in? You used to be able to just do that at the public library.”

Quora Q/A: Are you sure of all you write?

(Fresh answer: Well, I bloody well have to be, don’t I?)

 

I am not 100% certain of the essence of the question. But in answering I HAVE a way that feels more certain than other options of analysis:

Writing is a question of combining information, relevance, flow with brevity in a logically coherent and obvious way.

You begin somewhere that makes sense to you:

    • Various theories have it that you start off with a tiny mystery or a descriptive feeling to draw the reader into the text. But a form like that sends a clear signal to the seasoned reader that you are not a “free writer”; you are out to please, ie. to sell, ie. you might care more about your own livelihood than delivering the goods. Maybe.

Put yourself in the reader’s place:

    • Nobody wants a bumpy ride, where the text cannot come to terms with itself, but if the information, the story, or the range of descriptive feelings is relevant enough, readers might go along for the ride. But the unevenness might be an intended purpose, a sense of struggling uphill, grasping for some unknown handhold, producing a damning desire of fulfilment as payoff for all of the hardship…
    • Only a particular clientele wants a smoothed out ride, where all things are without corners, prongs, thorns, grating or holes and all behaviour is within acceptable societal parameters and justice is served at every table and nothing really hurts. But lack of pain and opposition can make things go down, which would otherwise be rejected…

Every story, every information delivery, has something at heart, and the choice of language frees this something, or it does not:

    • A really slow story
      A slowly developing story
      A story developing really slowly
      A story being really slow to develop
      A story-development on the slow end
      A story taking its time to come to fruition

Which one is it? What is your personal like or enjoyment of language? Hopefully the words that feel right strung together.

Finding certainty in the delivery is what the writer does. Weighing the words that come to describ

    • the personal understanding of facts
    • the development of a scene
    • the mechanics of a reaction or
    • the parameters of feelings or an emotion

which later in the editing proces still bring the intended result. And all of the little words connecting everything, pointing to directions, changing time and perspective, all of it, hinge on the intent. Is it a direction, a center, a show, a precision? The intent causes words to form. The intent rules. As a conscious, well-planned-out thing or from-the-heart improvisation, the method should only matter to the writer.

So, to answer the question again:

And am I sure that the choice of words up above are just the right words?

    • That would be a definite “No” – because they cohere as one answer to a question with more than one interpretation. And editing can go on until Entropy is done taking a break.
    • But having edited the present full answer for 35 minutes the stringing of words is now intentional and deliberate, fulfilling my intent of an adequate reply to an unclear question, while also adding an amount of the writer’s meta-thinking for some readers to take heed of, to make the answer a “yes”.

Thanks for the opportunity to think about it.
