POSITIVELY NOT SUBVERSIVE
bambus # 127 - anis 08.08.01

this text is definitively - not subversive - this time i really paid - attention - and revised with great care - every single sentence - discarding every word - that even remotely - could be misunderstood - i have left out all allusions - watching to stick to the precise information - of the text -- why? - you ask me why? - you mean i could write - whatever i want - just like that? - well, you got nerves! - don't you have any idea - about what would happen - if i just wrote - what i was up to? - don't you know - how disastrous this could end? - and it's alright, anyway - coz maybe there are kids watching - i sure keep an eye on that - well got to - basically - officially speaking - and of course there are - real obscenities on the market - some people - for example - hide radical messages - in their lyrics - just think about frank zappa - hey there people i'm bobby brown - you understand? - the way it comes along -- well - you see - and the thing is - i did in actual fact - write one or two things - so that the people said to me: - yes but do you think you can - really write this and that? - none of them was against it personally themselves - but they only didn't know - whether or not the block warden... - ha! - did you notice that? - i was just on the brink of - writing something subversive - in the very act - well i will leave it there - as a warning - as a horrible example - whoops - that was almost it - close shave - yeah this is - how you can so easily slip into these things - without knowing - it just happens - you know? - and some time ago - well - i did write some chunks - i can tell you - they were quite... - ha! - like this one... - ah no, doesn't matter now - long ago - coz you know - in some bamboo magazines - i alluded to - kay be - well you know... - what? - no - not: - kitchen bucket - the other one - yes - king boy - well alright - i said that - long time ago - with reference to - ah - depending on - the well-known - norwegian legend - which was also set to music by grieg - about - ah - king boy - a sort of fairytale - or folk tradition - well - i did use that - for my purposes - i admit that - and this is exactly the point why i say all this - to begin with - you know? - as a kind of confession - like - as a kind of - well - just to be honest - at least for one time - to speak openly only once - now you wouldn't object here - would you? -- so for this reason i went and searched the whole text - for things - that could provoke people -- you know i looked - if i had slandered minorities - as i usually do - or if i forged historical data - as i often did - any of the typical smuttiness against the authorities - dirty words - proper names - personal pronouns - okay i did of course - use this i-form again - you don't do that normally - coz - there is the lyrical i - and there is the author - these are two completely different things - i don't get that sometimes - still practising - certainly i also watched - not to conjure up anything - with the voodoo number - so that the folks - don't have to be afraid - took out all the bits - that could lead to juvenile delinquency - leaving out all kinds of sexism - deleted all the offensive remarks - and the insults - then i submitted it - instantly to the examination office - for examination affairs - and now the text is so clean - that the queen could read it - and her mom - you can actually - release it - into the public - just like that - without any age limit - you can read it out - in the homes for the elderly - in churches - and in shopping malls - so perfectly tailored is this text - to the audience - which approached it - without special expectations - that i almost tend - to think it's shit
