(Organic) machinery

There is all sorts of machinery that contains carbon.

Googling organic:

Organic agriculture is an ecological production management system that promotes and enhances biodiversity, biological cycles and soil biological activity. It is based on minimal use of off-farm inputs and on management practices that restore, maintain and enhance ecological harmony.

‘Organic’ is a label that denotes products produced under the authority of the Organic Foods Production Act. The principal guidelines for organic production are to use materials and practices that enhance the ecological balance of natural systems and that integrate the parts of the farming system into an ecological whole.

Organic agriculture practices cannot ensure that products are completely free of residues; however, methods are used to minimize pollution from air, soil and water.

I should jack in some of the economics terms I’m learning / trying to write a poem with. Er, IS Curve.

Or, for your production management system, would you have a web-based query result screen? With answers? Excerpted how? Links to results? One of my specialties in multi-database Notes apps I developed before very many people knew how to program this feature across Notes databases.

A line in geometry has two sides, but never meets its parallels, its peers. A line in poetry has at least four sides.

A very small object - its center.

I can’t help but think of the tiny cube sculpture in the Minimalism exhibit at LACMA. Its center being a point, ah, and herein lies the problem with reading the obliquity in alpha order.

Abandon desire

What the fuck for? Just kidding. Mystics are continually, it seems, asking themselves to abandon desire, when they’re really redirecting it wholeheartedly to a single goal, a sort of inwardly-focused desire, a desire for the goal so fierce the goal is reached, delivering a cessation of desire, perhaps. Or, as St. John of the Cross might write (in translation), one in love and longing goes forth disguised – perhaps as a figure that represents her longing, or as one who would more readily achieve the object of desire – but this disguise is representational

Abandon normal instructions

well, but what about that night-eating syndrome? abnormal instructions (organic ones, not mechanical ones) obsessively followed?

Abandon normal instruments

Is google normal?

What are instructions. If only I could use google or dictionary.com. What are normal instructions? Things that make something work? So I am not lineating this because it might be a poem and a normal instruction for a poem or part of a definition for a poem might be that it is lineated. In this way abandoning the card-by-card rubric is good. Abandon that. With abandon, issue normal instructions, such as read the instructions thoroughly and carefully before you begin, so you don’t select all synonyms in the antonym portion of the standardized test, or so you assemble your IKEA furniture correctly. Another instruction for poems are those exercises. This card thing I’m using as an instruction. And let’s face it, if I’m not typing, I’m not really writing. I’ve got pages and pages that never see the light because they are on PAPER. What else is an instrument? How does it differ from a tool? How does it differ from a strategy, a process, a princess, a pea?

Accept advice

female mentoring in the corporate workplace is often not working; my own experience is like that of the older women listed in the article as mentors; the mentees are breeder women who are downwardly mobile urban republicans, no they are breeders who are earthly crunchy granola girls who would rather be barefoot and pregnant than have a decent career, no but the mentoring isn’t working because what you have to do to get the type of great corporate job – as a woman – isn’t anything many women want to do, and there aren’t many options – there’s not very much wiggle room – there is a lot more wiggle room in art, say, poetry, but even there, a lot of women reach a goal and then realize pursuing the next one further involves making a sacrifice of the way they’d defined the woman’s role, or defined their own goals or defined their own lives – they too don’t like to accept advice, but rather seek to be buttressed in their decisions – I haven’t made many good decisions being “backed up” by what I already feel by others, but then I am unusual in that I tend to feel things that other women don’t allow themselves to feel or want to feel or get reinforced feeling

more pedicures, manicures – that’s the type of advice I get but right now I feel we desperately need some lighting installed in the kitchen that my husband doesn’t feel we desperately need installed, so where does that leave me? not spending the same money on a spa day as on electrical work, let me tell you
