Thinking about the New Book

Well, what's important to me is very hard to identify.
I think it's important to not be Ron Silliman.
I also think it's important to not be a person who isn't Ron Silliman.

What's especially important is to not know who Ron Silliman is.
Unless you're Ron Silliman.
In that case it is important to know who you are.

I want to write sentences that aren't even new.
I certainly am not interested in not writing, though writing seems
too lonely and vague. O, the horrible.

Listen: I didn't mention Kurt Vonnegut's death, but that doesn't
mean I haven't been thinking about it.
