Cow, a cultural introduction

Getting to know the word from all angles...

Michal refuses to debate the idea of strengthening his extraordinary Fiction Corpus with yet another science fiction book; cites fatigueDictionary icon

I think highly of the potential of upholding English as a global lingua franca. I do challenge the uninspiring blueprint with which the English language is taught.Pointer

Enhancing a person's know-how with a language isn't like bringing about a faster boat. A language - a living tongue - is not merely a tool that you can teach yourself to use with greater amounts of precision. A spoken tongue can't be partitioned from the professed knowledge of a community of which it is a description. A language isn't recited; it happens - and keeps happening as long as a circle of people keeps using it.

To make a person recite English is to strip him of its cultural context. A capable educator must find a method of introducing it; the wisest pupil ventures out to seek it.

A dictionary has the potential to be an influential tool. The best dictionaries describe words based on a particular corpus, a set of writing of various size and consistency. A corpus may include everything from a biography of the world's top fiction authors to some really good stories. I burnt many candles forging my "monolithic" Fiction Corpus to form a different kind of dictionary based on the ability of one man to tell a story in myriad forms. It is a labor of love and listening.

I have drafted a million words and I have tabulated them, reshaping them - not merely to teach English vocabulary but to be an advocate for the human soul, and to pressure that soul or spirit not just to recite but to happen.

Help End Civil Rights Abuse With ArtOne of Margo's pictures from our trip across Europe.

Strength and dignity are her clothing...

Proverbs 31:25

Author's Note: I have been enjoined from sharing the details of my true romance adventure until such time that the other party is prepared to present her perspective on the affair arrangement...Pointer

On the second to last weekend of June, 2011, I had joined my fellow naturists at a gathering of the Naturist Society in rural Pennsylvania. The next day I left on a flight for Europe. By the end of the week I had unexpectedly met another naturist, a woman, who was destined to accompany me on a tour of Europe's great naturist resorts.

As an artist, from the beginning of my adult career, my work had been devoted to the problem of body acceptance, a goal that I would later learn was shared by a whole community of people called naturists, a humble portion of which I discovered residing in Poland, a country whose cultural conservatism does not lend itself readily to forward thinking. One of those forward-thinking Polish naturists happened to be Margo.

I considered myself young and able, and being American I often convinced myself I was more than able. She didn't feel quite so young. Having grown up in Poland, what was and is still considered by many to be a poor country, she had the added burden of not only being disadvantaged but having it held against her. The difference became palpable when I realized I couldn't even properly translate into Polish the very American word, "opportunity." A chance? Sure. An occasion? Why not? An opportunity? Not in the book.

6,000 miles. One car. One tent. We started learning how to listen. We started learning how to open up. We started cooperating. Even when we were angry, even when it was so difficult that it didn't seem like it would turn out well, we stuck it out. We completed the trip and we came back happy. We had beaten the devil on the road. Back home more devils were waiting to abuse us. More anger. More fear. More sadness. This time we were prepared. This time we had each other and we could harken back to the joy and the trust and the suprise that 6,000 miles had created. We could remember what it was like to live in one tent.

THE DISAPPEARING WOMAN, THE DISAPPEARING MAN...Pointer

a collection of modern art prints and posters

During our trip across Europe, Margo very bravely opened up to me and to the camera. It was a difficult thing to do considering the scars that she carries. I wanted to share with the world her often joyful, often sad, often angry but always liberating experience except that the Internet is full of pictures of naked women and men and full of trolls who abuse them.

I realized that what I really need to point out is not the openness that Margo and I cultivated between ourselves, but the darkness that continues to surround us. When I censor nudity, I do so in a way that does not compromise the integrity of the human body. In censoring the photographs that Margo and I took during our trip, I was quick to notice that in those pictures where Margo was at her most open, at her most unguarded and most relaxed, in a word, when she was herself and basking in the sun I was forced to blacken her completely.

Why does our society drive people into darkness? Why can we not accept ourselves as we are? Why can we not accept our bodies? Have we truly become eunuchs? Or are we capable of defying the sickness that pits us against each other? Together we could conquer the devils that abuse us.

Whether you enjoy being nude or not, whether you've been photographed nude or not, but especially if, for you, like for Margo, it's something you never thought you would do, consider submitting your own photograph to be published in a censored manner as a form of protest against the ubiquitous presence of the human body on the internet, naked or not, that is published and duplicated ad infinitum without context and without regard for the identity or the needs of the individual being depicted.

Michal's Dictionary:
Understanding the word Cow

A word can represent many things. First and foremost it represents a type of gesture. A specific way of speaking. A specific way of inscribing a mark. A specific way of moving your hand. To know one of these kinds of gestures is to know how to pronounce the word cow in some kind of way.

If you want to communicate an idea using the word cow, you will need to know what other people are made to think when you make the gesture. You will never have complete awareness of or control over the associations or identities that are invoked by a set of words, but you can know what was and what is a single word's jointly accepted definition, at least for a given place, thereby tracing a direction which will help you to understand what kinds of associations and identities are driving its use.

By using the word yourself, you enter into a long-standing albeit oftentimes unconscious debate over its definition, forever entangling yourself into the history of its use. The way you use it, and which other words you use it with carries weight.

The more you know about where the word cow is located in the fabric of a language, the better you will be at exploiting its cultural power.

Usage of Cow in The Gospel of Jesus H.

A picture of the planet Mars

An experimental science fiction Christology that makes Jesus the hard boiled narrator of his own early years on a bizarro earth made dark by volcanic ash and informally ruled by a man from Mars who sells bottled air.

"Estate! What kind of estate is that? Four floors they built; Andrew lives on top - and the Commandant? He lives in the kitchen, next to the cowshed. Both of them wallow in their own filth: unwashed, unfed. You know what he has for breakfast? A slice of bread, with butter; coffee, with milk. For dinner: coffee, with milk; bread, no butter. And finally, after a long day of work, he has supper: milk with bread. How does he work all day long? How does he stand up? But most of all, how does he sleep in that filth? He doesn't even take his shirt off. What kind of estate is that? I said, 'Clean up! Don't live like dogs!' They said, 'We have an estate: look at all the work we have.'

Verse 257 from the chapter called Adolescence

"It's over. Look at this country. We've sold out! As soon as I have the money for petroleum, that last cow is going to be slaughtered."

"Why don't you do it yourself?"

Verses 291-292 from the chapter called Adolescence

"What?" She ripped herself away from his arms. "Why not?" She was walking away. "Don't walk away from me." Jesus ran in front of her and grabbed her shoulders again. She ripped herself free and turned around, walking the other direction. "Where are you going?" Jesus asked. She kept walking. Finally, Jesus ran up alongside. Immediately, she turned around, like a stubborn cow, and walked the other way. "Stop playing games." She was silent. "Why don't you want to kiss me? Zoe?" She was playing dumb. "Listen to me." Jesus grabbed her again. "What's going on?"

Verse 1051 from the chapter called Security

Oh, that Moochka was a lady alright: if you treated her well, she would treat you back. Your father had her wrapped around his little finger: he could whistle from a hundred meters - farther, if he were upwind - and she would come, like a dog. People were amazed; nobody else could do it: she wouldn't pay attention. When time for milking came around, your father would enter the cowshed, whistle, and Moochka would turn around. First, she would have to lick his hand. Then, he would give her a whole ear of corn, pat her on the head, and, most important of all, sweep her with a broom, from head to tail, right along her back, as gently as possible. Then, sidestepping, she was by the wall, ready for action.

Verse 142 from the chapter called Childhood

Did cowards make us guns or was it the other way around? Were we greedy cowards for using them? Or had we no other choice? Were we cowards for sending bombs instead of troops? Or had we no other choice? Were the terrorists cowards for making themselves into bombs? Or had they no other choice? Were they brave men for exploding themselves instead of dropping or throwing their bombs? That was a good question.

Usage of Cow in Sex for Children

A drawing of a man between a woman's legs in front of another man in a hospital bed

A literature book narrated by a pair of siblings on either side of the Atlantic whose profoundly weird sexual experiences pose a serious challenge to their traditional understanding of mathematicians, marriage, gay young men and God.

ANDY: You can't deny it: and you're too much of a coward to say it's true.

MACY: ...

ANDY: You're pathetic.

MACY: Don't be mean.

ANDY: How am I supposed to talk to you?

MACY: Like a gentleman.

– Title 3, Regarding a Dream, Chapter 5, The Fifth Day, Part 1, Greenery & Land Reform, Section 1, Love, Hope, Desire and Suspicion, Paragraphs 69-74

On those days, like this one, my mind remembers that day when reason conquered my feeling, and prevented me from exploding in front of Macy with these thoughts: O dearly beloved friend! who speaks of having family and children - what kind of family? whose children? What sort of marriage will you be contracting when you return to Boston? Do you not know that your state has been ill served by her highest court? by those who control its judgment? Do you not know that they have abandoned reason? that they are not your friends: that they are devious cowards? They did not consider the plaintiffs' most important arguments: they did not officially recognize a fundamental right to have what many people desire; they did not officially recognize the classification of those people as suspect: and yet, in their hearts they did recognize those things: their inflated arguments betray them.

– Title 2, Regarding the Romaniac, Part 1, Section 15, The Role of the Judicious Mind, Paragraph 1

"Why are you both so difficult? I swear to God: I've never met two more difficult men. Go ahead if you want: ignore him; he ignores you: because you're both stupid - each in his own way, mind you. I know you think there's no other way of dealing with this - but that's not true, and you know it. You're just afraid of confrontation. Well, go ahead and be a coward: if you had balls, you would show them."

– Title 3, Regarding a Dream, Chapter 3, The Third Day, Part 2, Prayer & The Reformation, Section 10, Bringing Up a Sore Subject, Paragraph 123

I imagined myself defending Indiana from them. Wearing a tuxedo made me feel both strong and fragile - like nobility. Until Tottenham Court Road, I kept pondering my strange, untested mix of courage and cowardice. Then I looked to see if Albert were getting off: but they were staying: one more stop to go.

– Title 3, Regarding a Dream, Chapter 1, The First Day, Part 1, Victory & Calendar Reform, Section 11, The Underground, Paragraph 4

"He's a coward," I said, "I'm not going to do it - absolutely not." And I turned my face away: first to the right, then to the left.

Bullets whizzing by a statue of Nikola Tesla

A collection of stories featuring a sexy Parisian ghost, a spooky Moon base full of vagina-faced aliens, a policeman with an Irish name, a truck full of watermelons, a flautist, and a man who has to see another man about a diseased horse.

The technician who had the morning shift that fateful day couldn't remember if the door had been jammed. A close inspection of the mortise revealed dried bits of something. "This is evidence," said Patsy to the worker. "I'm going to need you to replace this doorjamb."

A girl came to watch. She had blond hair. Shephard smiled. The man sliced through the beast's neck. Blood sprayed. The girl jumped back. She couldn't have been more than eight. Shephard thought her pretty. The blood started gushing from the gaping hole. The cow grunted. The men had to hold her down.

The next morning, Shephard left Clark sound asleep. He walked onto the main road. Beyond the monument to Chairman Mao, men crowded around a cow on its side. Shephard joined them. The cow's legs were tied. One man was carrying a huge knife. He crouched next to the beast's neck. With the edge of his blade, he felt for the end of the jaw.

Usage of Cow in Sorry Ms. Jackson

Chiseled letters from an ancient stone tablet hanging on a wall

A real play. With drama in it. Talk fast. It takes two hours. Set in a guest house. In a small community. After a murder. Lots of suspicion. The characters learn to listen to each other. It's funny.

MS. JACKSON: I have something to confess.

GREY GOOSE: Go on.

MS. JACKSON: I lied to you.

GREY GOOSE: You lied to me?

MS. JACKSON: Earlier today: when I told you it wasn't me.

GREY GOOSE: It wasn't you that did what?

MS. JACKSON: I gave your name to the police. It was so stupid. I was afraid of you for no reason. I was foolish. I was emotional. I was a coward. Perhaps I even did it for revenge - I don't know. I have no idea why I did it.

GREY GOOSE: It was instinct, woman.

MS. JACKSON: My instinct failed me. Grey Goose, I can't believe it. I'm so sorry. Forgive me.

GREY GOOSE: I forgive you.

– ACT II, lines 481-490

(KOKOMO exits. GREY GOOSE enters.)

GREY GOOSE: My darling Polynesian beauty, Fletcher must be right. It's pointless for me to put the moves on you - especially since it's obvious you're in love with him. My chances of success were always slim. I never lost faith in a woman's whim. I was certain, if I tried hard enough, you would let me taste-test your sweeter stuff. Each one of my advances you rebuffed. You're too good. My situation has changed now that my dear wife and I are estranged. Perhaps some trickery can be arranged. If I were to slip softly into your bed, not smelling like chattel, but like that perfume you gave my son - that little brat - who cares more about annoying my wife than pursuing the love of his own life, even though I'm the one she causes strife - perchance I might convince you with a kiss - before you discover my artifice - that I am the best way to earthly bliss. It would give me joy. My desire to light this house on fire would be assuaged. Despite what I have said, I will never ignite another house again. I am reborn. Ever since your mistress unleashed her scorn, making me sit in filth, lost and forlorn, in my old cowshed, I have taken stock. I'll no longer blindly follow the flock. I cannot yet say the same for my cock. If my wife's got a lover, I'll be damned if I don't. I'm not going to be crammed away. I'll come back with my monogrammed pajamas. I'll drink champagne and cut loose like there's no tomorrow. I'll introduce Kokomo to my little one-eyed goose and she'll say I'm her daddy. My excitement notwithstanding, I must not invite suspicion. I'll save my strength for tonight!

– ACT II, line 30

LUKE: What's the difference between the two?

MS. JACKSON: Bounty families are descendant from the original Bounty mutineers, who settled on Pitcairn Island-

FLETCHER: With their Tahitian consorts. I'm sorry. I meant their Tahitian wives. And their Tahitian slaves. I mean, their male Tahitian friends.

MS. JACKSON: The Pitcairner families are descendant-

FLETCHER: From three adventurers - to be more precise, from two ack-willy whalers and a soldier-of-fortune.

LUKE: That's a ridgy-didge pedigree. Too right!

FLETCHER: It gets better. Being a direct descendant of my namesake, Fletcher Christian, the illustrious chief of the mutiny on the Bounty, I am therefore descendant from the ancient rulers of the Isle of Man.

LUKE: A reg'lar Pommy!

FLETCHER: My father's mother was a Quintal. That means half of him is descendant from a drunken scoundrel who set his ship on fire, drove his wife to suicide, and threatened to kill the entire island population. That's not the side of the story we like to tell. We prefer the story of how John Jackson turned to Christianity and taught his children to read and write. Jackson, I'll have you know, was a Christian before he became a Jackson. He changed his name the moment the British rediscovered the island. My mother admires his cowardice so much, she did the same thing.

– ACT I, lines 93-101

(KOKOMO exits.)

GREY GOOSE: Excellent! The day of reckoning has come at last. For too long now, the crimes of my distant past have tarried and o'er me their shadows cast. Restitution's been made, Heavenly King! Grant that my wife be open to forgive a reformed man, who only wants to live in his own home - not like a fugitive on an island full of gossiping cows, who whisper lies, make innuendo, roll their eyes and giggle nonsense, and yet dole out their judgments as if they were a whole judge and jury. Let them bear witness that no woman will run me out of my own home - even if I have to burn it down!

Usage of Cow in Miscellaneous Dingbats

The title of the book at the end of a string of miscellaneous dingbats

A story book full of short fiction stories. An interesting bedtime mystery. A fairy tale. Science fiction romance. Adult life. Uninspiring gay fiction. Horror.

I almost didn't go to see Barack. I was ashamed of the time he asked me to move in with him and I said no. It was right after Obama disappeared. There were skinheads crawling all over Moscow looking for Africans to beat. Barack thought it would be safer if we lived together. I didn't disagree. It would have been cheaper too but I was used to my own apartment. That's what I told Barack. I never liked him much. Obama was always goofing off. He was a trickster. He was fun to be around. Barack was always in a bad mood. It could have been partly because of Obama. I don't know.

– from “A Black Man in Moscow,” an inspirational story inspired by real events, though the details are fictional

On my second day at the school I took the birds out of the furnace. If I was going to sit alone again I didn't want to be bothered. I sat in silence. I found the headman in the evening and asked him again if the villagers knew I had come. He nodded his head and walked away. I figured it didn't matter to me if anybody came. Either way I would get paid.

– from “A Black Man in Moscow,” an inspirational story that describes the reality of this world no matter where you live

I don't know who to thank for my fate. I know God has a lot to do with it. As does Putin. And my own imagination. And the many friends of mine at university. And Barack. And Obama. And Khalifa.

– from “A Black Man in Moscow,” an inspirational story that describes what certain people go through, though hopefully you're not one of them

Khalifa was the first to break. It wasn't enough to be harassed and called dirty chocolate. When his neighbors found out he was a Muslim, a gang of hooligans came to his apartment and attacked him in broad daylight. He had to jump out of his kitchen window to get away. He lived on the fourth floor. He died in hospital a few days later.

– from “A Black Man in Moscow,” an inspirational story that represents the real lives of certain people, though the details are fictional

I was warned that the villagers might not be ready to accept me. It didn't matter. Even if I was beaten to death, people would know who did it. They would have to live with it. A village isn't like a city. You don't just walk off and forget something happened. I know. I was born in a village. I knew my death would eventually have meaning to somebody. For that alone I was ready to die.

Life is a spinning sphere with Joy at one pole and Sadness at the other. Each continuously feeding its pair. Joy flanked by the emotions of Trust on one side, Surprise on the other. Trust leading to Anticipation; anticipation leading to Fear. Surprise leading to Disgust; disgust leading to Anger. Anger and Fear fueling our Sadness. Sadness giving way, in time, to Joy; through Hope, an orientation towards Love. Love, an openness towards Joy, Trust and Surprise; the sum of emotion; emotion amplified by others. Multiplied and divided, in equal parts. Such that to those from whom it has been subtracted, we must add. Until we are whole.
