Rauan Klassnik’s Ron Silliman Dreams

Silliman's eyes in Rauan's brain

Silliman's eyes in Rauan's brain

In support of his excellent book of violent prose poems, Holy Land, Rauan Klassnik has been blogging from the Holy Land. There are lots of violent, strange drawings, weird rants, and recently, a series of dreams he’s had about Ron Silliman. They are quite fun.

Here’s the beginning of the first one:

I’m sitting on a rock with God. Below us in a field of cactus a naked Ron Silliman is scurrying after a rabbit.

Again and again it looks like Ron’s about to nab it but he either mistimes his final leap or the rabbit’s too slick and he ends up in cactus. Usually face-first.

But, a couple of times, tumbling over, it’s ass-first. All credit to Ron, though, he’s diligently and painstakingly removing all the needles (sometimes with the help of a mirror he’s produced from who knows where.)

I look over at God. He’s blank-faced.

Check out some more on the blog, and buy Rauan’s book. It is a quick and mind fucking read.
