Queen, a cultural introduction

Getting to know the word from all angles...

Michal's contemplating the concept of strengthening his unheroic Fiction Corpus with a treatise on fiction; cites fatigueDictionary icon

I don't doubt the soundness of administering English as a universal language. I don't trust in the enfeebling methodology by which the English language is presented for study.Pointer

Enriching a person's dexterity with a language isn't like producing a stronger crank. A language - a spoken language - is not just an instrument that you can learn to wield with greater amounts of precision. A living tongue can't be decoupled from the shared logic of a group of people 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.

Teaching students to recite English is to strip them of its cultural context. A worthy educator must develop a technique for introducing it; the perceptive student ventures out to seek it.

A dictionary has the potential to be an influential tool. A decent dictionary will define a language on the basis of a specific corpus, a set of written language of varying scope and consistency. This corpus could include anything from a book about literature to some really weird fiction. I lost many a sleepless night creating my "jumbo-sized" Fiction Corpus in order to form a distinct kind of dictionary based on the ability of one man to tell a story in many different forms. It is a labor of love and listening.

I have strung together a million words and I have divided them, reformulating them - not just to teach an American language but to reveal the human spirit, and to goad that spirit or soul not just to recite but to happen.

Help End Racism 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

One week after arriving in Europe, I met a woman in the sauna on the ground floor of the large villa she shared with her ex-husband. Four weeks later she was sharing a small rain-soaked tent with me in Vienna, our little gas-fired stove barely capable of boiling a cup of water. It wasn't until we reached Croatia that we decided to invest in a large electric kettle. It was quite the luxury and it made me very happy.

As an artist inspired by a young woman's struggle with self-esteem and bulimia, body acceptance had always featured prominently in my aesthetic. Having recently discovered naturism and its mantra of body acceptance in the United States, I was eager to explore the style and philosophy of naturist clubs and the beauty of naturist campsites in Europe. By a trick of fate, I found myself first in Bielsko-Biała, Poland. Margo's home.

I had grown up in America. Land of opportunity. I came of age in the booming 90s when everything was possible. She had grown up in Poland. She had come of age at a time when the Soviets were making sure that there wasn't even anything to eat in the country. I couldn't even properly translate the word "opportunity" into Polish.

I've never gone hungry without deserving it. I've never been systemically beaten by a parent. I've never been fondled by a priest. That doesn't mean I can't listen to somebody who has had to experience such abuse and it doesn't mean I can't try to understand. Margo and I traveled 6,000 miles together. We slept in the same tent. We had to listen to each other. A person shouldn't need 6,000 miles to do it. We should be able to listen to each other just because we want to. We should've been taught to do it. If we haven't been taught, we should be learning how to do it and learning fast.

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 Queen

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 queen in some kind of way.

If you want to communicate an idea using the word queen, 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 queen is located in the fabric of a language, the better you will be at exploiting its cultural power.

Usage of Queen 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.

In those days, there was a copy of the Black Madonna circulating around lower Silesia. The Black Madonna, being the most important Catholic icon in Poland (and especially resulting from her gracious favor in times of war), was, in those days, like so many times before, the lone object of a nation's most urgent prayers. 'The Queen of Poland' she was called. Every night, at nine o'clock, the nation joined with monks from Bright Hill, where monastery walls had protected her shrine for centuries past, and, together, we sang:

Verse 498 from the chapter called Adolescence

Mary! Queen of Poland!

Mary! Queen of Poland!

I am near you, I remember!

I am near you, I remember!

I guard!

Verses 499-503 from the chapter called Adolescence

Mary! Queen of Poland!

Mary! Queen of Poland!

I am near you, I remember!

I am near you, I remember!

I guard!

Verses 584-588 from the chapter called Adolescence

"Up ahead," said Jesus, "is St. Hedwig's tomb. This is St. Hedwig of Silesia; she is patroness of Silesia. There is also a St. Hedwig who was Queen of Poland. She is patroness of Poland. The two are not to be confused."

Your mother smiled politely and nodded.

Verses 377-378 from the chapter called Security

Once upon a time, in fairy book land (that is, medieval Europe), there was a thing called common ground. This almost mythical farmland was controlled by individual farmers only during the growing and harvesting seasons. After that, until the next growing season, it was freely available for grazing and for other purposes. Land with a fence around it, or a hedge, was off limits - enclosed, so to speak. In those days, mankind ruled. Then came a time of change. A strange, new king came to rule in Britain. His name was Progress the First. His Queen was Greed; they named their son, Efficiency, the crown prince. They enclosed all the land in Britain. Other nations soon followed suit. By fiat, they encouraged the enclosure of land. Germany encouraged, then France and Denmark - even the Russian czar. But Poland was among the last: we clung to our old ways. We felt the common ground slipping from underneath our feet. Finally, we had to give way. Progress ruled.

Usage of Queen 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.

NIKE: Yeah, but the opposite's not true: that's the freaky thing. Because the queen: she holds all the sperm in her little sack, and she can decide which of her babies are boys by holding back the juice. But sometimes, the worker bees develop their own organs, and they become like secondary queens. Now most of their babies are male, but, like, one percent or something become female. Now what's up with that?

– Title 3, Regarding a Dream, Chapter 2, The Second Day, Part 1, Labor & Economic Reform, Section 13, Discussing the Birds and the Bees, Paragraph 21

The Bois de Boulogne's nighttime bazaar was far away. It was concentrated on the Allée de la La Reine Margo, the Alley of the Daisy Queen. All the johns and joans congregated along that kilometer stretch of road. Somehow, we had drifted away. The car door opened. Nike got out. Passing through the frame of the car, I followed. Luka drove off. With him went the light. Nike was there. I could feel him. He was waiting, holding his breath, listening. Footfalls.

– Title 3, Regarding a Dream, Chapter 2, The Second Day, Part 1, Labor & Economic Reform, Section 22, Encountering Poverty, Paragraph 43

Nike was shocked. He was appalled. Police officers, despite being the worst kind of swine, should hold themselves with at least a little bit of respect, especially when they're idly standing along the Queensway of all vices. Nike was so ashamed he sat down near the bushes. Things were not going well. No one wanted to answer his questions unless he were going to negotiate business. Nike was not that foolhardy - at least, not yet: the pain was too much. But, because of it, he had to walk around like a grown man with rickets. Even the fat girls were laughing at him. Even the ugly girls, the cut girls, the destroyed and overly diseased girls were laughing at him. He was humiliated.

– Title 3, Regarding a Dream, Chapter 5, The Fifth Day, Part 2, Science & Reform Schools, Section 10, Navigating the Socio-Political Spectrum, Paragraph 5

NIKE: Virgin birth. All the male bees are born from unfertilized eggs: so, if you're gonna be a guy, all you have to do is get laid (by the queen). You're pretty much born the same way you live and die.

ANDY: Are all the fertilized eggs female?

– Title 3, Regarding a Dream, Chapter 2, The Second Day, Part 1, Labor & Economic Reform, Section 13, Discussing the Birds and the Bees, Paragraphs 19-20

NIKE: Yeah, it's like heaven wrapped up in hell. They don't have to work alright, but not because they don't want to: they can't even feed themselves: they don't know how. The women have to feed them until the queen's ready to have kids. It's like the Amazons, for godsake. These chicks have careers, man: they start by takin' out the trash: they're on clean-up duty, disinfecting the honeycomb. After that, they become nurses - right? first for the older kids, then they're graduated to the younger ones. And then what? They become builders for a while, and then, finally, they get to fly outside for the first time. But then? they go straight to guard duty - 'cause only when you're at the top of the hive can you go out and hunt for nectar. Can you imagine what that's like? Matriarchy?

Gog glared. He wondered if she knew who he was. He asked.

"Of course," she said. "The legend of Skin Smoother tears across the steppe like fire."

"If my people see you carrying my swords," said Gog, "they will take you for my consort."

"I am not an unworthy bride," said the woman. "I am the daughter of the queen of the Sauromatae."

Gog and Magog returned to Kolkhis. The people were amazed. "Truly," they murmured, "this man is a great hero. Did we not see him swim in vain after the Greek ship? Yet he has not only returned alive, he has brought with him his queen." Gog told them the story of the great serpent. They believed it.

Gog told his men to march southeast in search of the Medeans. The chiefs grumbled against him. "This land is kind to us," they said. "Let us stay here and settle. The people worship you as a hero."

"By the selfishness of Her Majesty, the Queen's, ministers," all three of them agreed.

"And employing it," said the other.

Meanwhile, the great condottiero Sforza di Cotignola switched sides. The Queen found herself a new lover. Though her quarrel with the Pope over her succession still raged, her favorite, the King of Aragon, had become such an insufferable brute, locking up her lover and even trying to arrest her, that she had to escape his clutches, adopting his rival, the Valois Duke, as her new champion.

From his headquarters on the Rockaway Peninsula in the borough of Queens, his duties involved shaking down the owner of the mini-golf course, chasing teenagers off the dunes, and teaching the lady lifeguards how best to assert their authority.

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

The orbits of Captain Orbitz as told and retold by trillions of Orion systemizens, indeed systemizens from across many a galaxy, never fluctuated from their purpose of helping Captain Tycho "Tych" Orbitz conquer his home galaxy. Tych was firm from the day he resigned his commision as a courier in the Star Alliance to the day he vanished into space. Many were afraid he would come back. Many more hoped he would. They thought he was out pirating somewhere with Lalunia, his pheromonically irresistible great-great-great-great-niece, or ruling a planet with the beautifully blue Sara Lee, or fighting the jilted queen of the Astrazeneca or playing chess with CAROline the computer that loved him. They didn't know he was dead. They had no idea he had died long before he had even resigned his commission. Before he hijacked the tesseract marking the beginning of his rebellion or piloted the stolen ship Nautilus into the singularity the man had physically removed his own dead body from the bridge. He had no choice. At the time the ship was scheduled to be inspected by Star Alliance sanitation officers.

The Body Acceptance Calendar

A really good idea for a monthly calendar

If a 45-year-old businesswoman and hard working mother of three kids is going to pose nude for a calendar, it's gonna have to be a good one. Margo didn't start a coffee shop called the Vagina Cafe to win her favors from the establishment. Even as she dishes out prizes to the 20 women who placed last in the twentienth anniversary run of her town's biggest road race, her business, unlike everyone else, doesn't get mentioned. She was an official sponsor for Christ's sake! But the announcer just couldn't swallow his patriarchy and get the words "Vagina Cafe" out of his mouth. That's not something a proper gentleman would say in front of a crowd of humble God-fearing "ladies" who cherish their modesty! And a Body Acceptance Calendar is certainly not what a humble God-fearing book-seller like a Barnes and Noble would put on their shelves! So how do I expect to sell this in the mainstream? Maybe if you download the free versions a thousand billion times it might help. Start downloading.
