Top, a cultural introduction

Getting to know the word from all angles...

Michal's deliberating on the prospect of enlarging his stately Fiction Corpus with a history of art work; cites fatigueDictionary icon

I don't doubt the feasibility of harnessing English as humanity's second language. I don't think highly of the certifiably commonplace process by which the English language is presented for study.Pointer

Improving one's skills with a language isn't like introducing a smoother paper. A language is not just an instrument that you can teach yourself to wield with greater amounts of precision. A spoken language can not be bisected from the professed knowledge 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.

To make a pupil recite English is to cheat him out of its cultural context. A proper instructor has to develop a technique for introducing it; the perceptive student goes out to seek it.

A dictionary has the potential to be an influential tool. The best dictionaries describe a language on the basis of a particular corpus, a body of written language of various size and consistency. Such a corpus might contain everything from a biography of artists to a lot of elaborate fictions. I lost many a sleepless night developing my "immense" Fiction Corpus in order to form a different genre 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 framed a million words and I have codified them, reshaping them - not simply to teach English vocabulary but to reveal the human spirit, and to pressure that spirit or soul not just to recite but to happen.

Michal's Dictionary:
Understanding the word Top

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 top in some kind of way.

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

Usage of Top 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.

The trick with cows, according to Jesus, was letting them lick salt off your bare shoulder. They loved salt, like candy. In fact, Jesus gave her candy too, but who knows how much she liked it. The salt: that was precious. They could lick salt till doomsday. Give a cow like Moochka salt, and you'll get twenty-four liters a day: three times eight. What a super yield: to the last month - since you can't milk on the last month. She was a good cow. If you said, "Moochka, we're going to sleep," she would lie down: you could sit on top of her. "Sit on top of a cow!" the people said. "Now that's a cow!" said your father, on top of the cow. But you had to treat her right. You had to warm her water in the winter - straight from the well was unacceptable.

Verse 143 from the chapter called Childhood

Then, in Jesus's bedroom, we played our favorite game, blind man's buff. It was Sapper's idea; Sapper always wanted to play it. At the time, it was generally known as the best opportunity for grabbing girls, but Sapper's excitement was unparalleled. Your father liked it too: he liked to fall on top of girls when he caught them. He said that on top of them was the only way he could recognize girls blindfolded. We were devils, but ladies like devils. Fathers, on the other hand, do not - and Sapper got your father in trouble one time.

Verse 205 from the chapter called Childhood

When they got to the crypt, all the doors were closed. Through the windows, Jesus saw his mother's monument: flambeaus were lit; bouquets were still fresh. 'Christ conquers death,' said the ribands. Jesus stopped crying: the stone slab was firmly in place - he was grateful, having dreaded the possibility of jumping into his mother's crypt and opening her coffin.

"Did you see her?" asked Jesus.

Verses 233-234 from the chapter called Adolescence

Sapper stopped again. He turned around. "Yeah," said Sapper.

Verse 230 from the chapter called Adolescence

"Stopper?" said Jesus. "I don't get it. What do you need a stopper for?"

"Stop," his father said, "her..."

Usage of Top 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.

After Nike left us, we went back to Vinnie's. Before long, the auction started and Luke began reassuring Barbara that he would help jack up the price. I told him to stop being silly; we had only been kidding and if Luke actually started bidding he would only ruin the poor girl's reputation. Instead, I offered my own services: if the need should arrive, I would start a bidding war. Barbara loved the idea. "You'll make all the guys jealous!" she said, and she told me to do it anyway; but I had to laugh because I wasn't really serious when I said it. But before I could say that, something happened and Barbara's attention was taken away. I was left feeling obliged; Barbara's turn was coming up, and just as I was wondering what sort of impression I would make, our collusion was trumped by the two girls in front: they started making out.

– Title 2, Regarding the Romaniac, Part 1, Section 7, Dating a Woman with Dogs, Paragraph 3

One was an actress; the other, an actor. Perched atop their corner, their vigilance having lapsed into conversation, neither of them saw me coming; I had to look up and shout from directly below them: "how is London treating you, Macy?" which surprised him and excited him so much he would've walked right off the pedestal if Christie hadn't held him back at the last moment. With a little trouble, he came down from his pedestal and we greeted each other as friends, not having time for much else, because Christie was in a hurry to get us down the street.

– Title 2, Regarding the Romaniac, Part 1, Section 12, Private Clubs, Paragraph 2

Unfortunately, my fertile imagination being as lazy as it is, sexuality, the easiest thing to imagine, was by far the most favored quality. And so, for example, I would approach the refrigerator, and casually becoming aware of the feeling, I would wonder why my loins were reacting, and opening the refrigerator door, suddenly, instead of seeing a wine bottle, I saw a very male wine bottle, standing next to a very female bowl of potato salad. A can of beer, waiting atop the shelf, was a very male can of beer. But as I would lift the tab and open it, looking down at the top, it became a very female can of beer. And I would have to be thinking about this while I drank from it.

– Title 3, Regarding a Dream, Chapter 1, The First Day, Part 1, Victory & Calendar Reform, Section 5, Inflammation of the Loins, Paragraph 6, Clauses 8-13

I began contemplating its total volume. "Where is the extra weight?" I thought. "Where is the unwelcome guest? Do I see a perfectly round blackness? absorbing all the light? Do I see it pushing away its neighbors? Yes: I see it throbbing. Little capillaries of red are throbbing throughout its body. See: you are feeding it with your own blood. Stop feeding it! Command your vessels to turn away! Rebuke them! Your own blood is conspiring against you. They are helping the cellular apostate. They are aiding its growth. And you wonder why we are all sick; we are all paralyzed with fear. We cannot speak with authority. But we must speak, brother. Speak and do not fear my ridicule - for only through ridicule may we gain authority." I was thinking this. My loins were screaming it. My organism was trying to communicate this to my ailing brother. Do you understand, sister? Do you see the difficulty of describing this?

– Title 3, Regarding a Dream, Chapter 1, The First Day, Part 1, Victory & Calendar Reform, Section 5, Inflammation of the Loins, Paragraph 3, Clauses 18-33

She turned to her husband for a moment. Then she turned back and looked forward. This time, when I glanced, it seemed like she had stopped crying - but there were still tears; she was still wet with tears. I held my glance, wanting to make sure the crying was over. She could sense me, so she began wiping away her tears. She looked at me. I held her eyes. She opened her mouth and raised her brow, making a look as if to say it were the music making her cry, and oh! what lovely music. She took my hand. I could feel the wetness of her tears. She was sitting between us - between me and Albert - holding our hands, connecting us like she had done during the walk to the station. I was no longer paying attention to the music. Someone was holding my hand. That someone, sharing her warmth, her flesh, and I, sharing my warmth: we were warming each other. We were holding each other's flesh. I leaned forward slightly and looked past Indiana. Albert had his eyes closed. He was breathing very steadily: maybe asleep, I thought. I sat back in my seat; I started thinking about the hand holding my hand. I liked the warmness; I liked the flesh.

Luka took a short cut. He turned abruptly onto the Route du Point du Jour à Bagatelle. He reached the cul-de-sac. Long green lawns glimmered through the trees. He veered onto the Route de la Longue Queue. He would shadow the Reine north. He could reach the Boulevard. Avenue Charles de Gaulle would be a stone's throw away.

There she was. She was on the right side of the road, waiting to cross. Luka slowed. He stopped in front of her. He looked into the back. Nike was still unconscious.

Junior wanted to ask Nyota if she liked baseball. It might have made him sound solicitous. "Do they have baseball where you're from? I take it you're not from Kentucky." Junior smiled. He thought, "Not bad." It was politely confrontational-the very essence of flirtation.

"I'm from South Africa," she said. Junior nodded. "I know we have a national team. I think we lost to the United States seventeen to nothing. They had to stop the game early."

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.

ALICE: Did somebody die?

FLETCHER: Don't ask.

ALICE: Yes.

FLETCHER: Even if your husband had died?

ALICE: It would.

FLETCHER: I've been wanting to confess this for so long. The island makes it hard. Who would have understood me if I had spoken? My mother? I pay my penance every time I hear her cry. She has no idea what part I played in that fire. I can't help feeling that, if I had stopped it, this family would never have had the problems it's had. Nobody died in that fire except for me. It was my own soul burning. As far as the house is concerned, restitution's been made. As for me, who would not find my weakness and ignore it? for the sake of convenience if not for shame. Who would restore my strength from the ashes?

ALICE: Let it be me. I will restore you.

FLETCHER: This is why I've been pursuing you. I knew you'd never give in to me. I saw your strength the moment you arrived: its grace: its beauty. I fell in love with it. I desired it - not for myself, but for its ability to release me from this guilt.

ALICE: Let me release you, Fletcher Christian. I will make you whole again.

FLETCHER: You will forgive me my crime?

Are you a eunuch?

The art show that defies abuse

St. Sebastian

Wall art symbolizing strength and protest

St. Sebastian was a member of the Roman Emperor's praetorian guard who had the audacity to teach Christian values while on the job. I think active duty American military men and women who don't vote or who don't publicly express a political opinion because of the uniform are either being idiotic or are being cowed by the threat of punishment from a superior. Either way, they're eunuchs. My purpose in creating the St. Sebastian Series is to put the flesh and face of the true soldier front and center. The good soldier puts his mission ahead of himself. He often ends up dead. The true soldier knows a bad mission when he sees one and he isn't afraid to say it. Saint Sebastian was not a cow, despite what clever people would have you believe. Saint Sebastian is a patron saint for all protestors who face the arrows of the mob for speaking out.
