Night, a cultural introduction

Getting to know the word from all angles...

Michal refuses to consider the possibility of augmenting his tremendous Fiction Corpus with a treatise on oversized canvas art; cites fatigueDictionary icon

I can't reject the prospect of legislating English as a worldwide language. I do challenge the unsurprising game plan by which the English tongue is presented for study.Pointer

Fine-tuning one's dexterity with a language isn't like bringing about a warmer piece of cloth. A language - a common language - is not just an instrument that you can learn to use with greater amounts of precision. A shared language can not be decoupled from the shared logic of a tribe 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 student recite English is to rob him of its cultural context. A proper educator must find a method of introducing it; the perceptive student ventures out to seek it.

A dictionary - properly used - can become an influential tool. A decent dictionary will define words on the basis of a particular corpus, a body of written language of various scope and consistency. Such a corpus can include anything from a book about literature to some really bizarro fiction. I developed my "unimpressive" Fiction Corpus in order to form a peculiar 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 assembled a million words and I have scrutinized them, reformulating them - not simply to teach a language but to defend the human spirit, and to goad that spirit or soul not just to recite but to happen.

Help End Humiliation 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

Europe, the summer of 2011. Twelve countries. 46 days. One car. One tent. One man. One woman he's just met.

Call it an accident. Call it divine will. I was never supposed to meet Margo...if not for one man's random criminal act...another abuse piled upon humanity by a fellow human. A robbery. A purse-snatching of a purse that happened to contain a passport. An assault on the human body. One of society's bad habits that I had come to fight as an artist working for body acceptance.

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 been married. I've never been divorced. I've never had kids. I've never lost my kids. That doesn't mean I can't try to understand somebody who has. By listening to Margo during our trip across Europe I started to consider her needs as if they were my own. I may not have been in a position to satisfy all of those needs, but I was able to shut up and put my own needs aside if I had to for at least 6,000 miles. We all need to be listened to and it is the one need that we all have a duty to satisfy. When somebody prays to another human, as a human you have a duty to listen. Humanity needs to start teaching itself that skill.

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 Night

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 night in some kind of way.

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

Usage of Night 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.

"I don't know: for like an hour maybe?" Jesus told them everything they wanted to know. His head kept falling down. He was tired.

"Were you up all night?" said the policeman.

Verses 650-651 from the chapter called Adolescence

"Would you happen to have any idea who could've robbed this guy Krupnik last night?"

Jesus said, "I can think of a thousand people."

Verses 661-662 from the chapter called Adolescence

That night, the children told scary stories to each other. At first, we sat around a fire outside, but it soon got cold. We went to your father's room, which shared a narrow closet with the room next to it. Inside that closet, we told more scary stories in the dark. I told the story of the Lonely Planet.

Verse 156 from the chapter called Childhood

One day, not long before the terrorists attacked Poland, Lucius and Columbus brought two guests into Jesus's apartment. One was a Krupnik. The other was soon to be his brother-in-law. He was an Irishman. Columbus had met the Krupnik at some dance club in Wroclaw: the Rathaus Club, named after the German word for Town Hall, seeing as how the club was located in Wroclaw's Town Square, not far from the actual Town Hall, and apparently the club catered to a more high-class clientele - hence the German name. The club was owned by Leonard Cohen-Krupnik and was probably always full of Krupniks and since Columbus had been spinning there one night, the two met. Columbus was spinning that night at a local club in Treblinka. Having invited his new Krupnik friend (who had brought along his future brother-in-law), Columbus extended his invitation to Jesus, but Jesus had other plans.

Usage of Night 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.

Soon the dogs were far from us, and the woman was beyond hearing. We talked about her for a while; we contemplated her strange words. She was a crying woman among dogs - but was she a lonely woman? a sick woman? a grieving woman? We may never know; but we did cross each other momentarily, and perhaps there was a purpose behind those crossing trails: for I have come to suspect her of something. I think she returned to me last night. I believe that she (in disguise, but still, a strange, walking woman among dogs) has infiltrated my dreams.

– Title 3, Regarding a Dream, Chapter 2, The Second Day, Part 1, Labor & Economic Reform, Section 18, Understanding Chastity, Paragraph 11

And Nike had to leave us early - what a tease! I'm sure you've spoken with him since that day - it was a while ago - and he's probably told you all about his company and moving to France, etc. It's a wonderful idea, but, unfortunately, so far it's only cost me: if Nike hadn't left me that night (to make some stupid arrangements for his departure), I would never have gotten into that bloody mess of an auction. Nike would've paid any price, because he is a gentleman - and Luke is only a hairy wart, besides being a cheapskate. Do you know what he did? Let me tell you.

– Title 2, Regarding the Romaniac, Part 1, Section 7, Dating a Woman with Dogs, Paragraph 2, Clauses 8-12

After dinner we went to the Viennese Prater. I challenged Macy to a duel on the punching machine: he didn't want to do it, and after I beat him I was pretty sure he hadn't tried his hardest - of course, who knows how those machines work. We even had our picture taken right in front of the Reisenrad, the giant Ferris wheel, and then we took a ride. We had ice cream. It was a very beautiful night, and a few days later, I left for America.

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.

She was a whitetail deer about to be caught once again in our headlights. Had she any idea we were stalking her-an innocent woman in the woods-what could she know? It was my dream; her nightmare. What was she to me? An image? A figure of a brave and beautiful woman? Vulnerability personified?

Tatum went to him. She apologized for her outburst at the bathhouse. Channing waved it off. He offered Tatum a seat. She asked why he wasn't with the team. Neal chuckled. He gestured towards the lights.

"This," he said, "is not common. One of the power stations failed a few hours ago-in time for nightfall."

– from “Dirty Manga People Are Disgusting,” a spooky story featuring a pair of unlikely partners

Tatum watched the rockets blow. A cloud of dust mushroomed around them. Moon rocks scattered. The ship climbed. The flames cut out. The thrusters sputtered into action. Up in the airless sky, the small, white box slipped through the peaks of eternal light. The sun glistened off its surface. Tatum followed it for as long as she could-until the darkness of the lunar night swallowed it.

Francesco admired this. He saw a bit of himself in the tenacity that Ferrari naively expected others to fear. It was made all the more endearing by the fact that Ferrari was not very strong. Francesco, only a handful of years older, was already famous for bending bars with his bare hands. He had no need for a limp-wristed knight. Being somewhat enamored of the boy's beauty, Francesco made him one of his flautists.

– from “Italy Sucks and Has Sucked For A Long Time,” an adventure story set in Italy even though it could be anywhere

Given absolution, Ferrari was transferred to the custody of the condottiero Muzio Attendolo, nicknamed 'Sforza,' who, at that particular moment, was serving the interests of the Pope and the Valois Duke. Pressed into service, Ferrari prospered. Though he first served the knights' grooms on foot, he took to horsemanship, as Sforza's bastard son Francesco put it, the way a calf takes to a bull's teat.

Usage of Night 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.

KOKOMO: I couldn't agree more.

ALICE: Luke was a real ladies' man before he met me. I practically had to jump into bed with him just to get kissed.

KOKOMO: That sounds awful.

ALICE: I got tired of waiting for him to make a move.

KOKOMO: In the end it did pay off.

ALICE: Sometimes you have to make things crystal clear.

KOKOMO: If only it were that simple.

ALICE: It is. Haven't you ever told Fletch how you feel?

KOKOMO: I like to pretend that I have - but I haven't.

ALICE: Do it. There's no sense in waiting. If you wait too long, you might not be around to say anything. That reminds me: Luke and I are leaving tonight. That letter he got from his manager was definitely bad news for me.

– ACT I, lines 1369-1378

FLETCHER: There is a house on Norfolk that no longer stands. Its eaves of pine were reduced to ash. Its worthy frame that I helped build collapsed in a huge fury of smoke and fire that I helped start. I watched it burning from the top of Mount Pitt. I was too ashamed to go any closer. I was there in the room the night my father planned that terrible justice with his friends. I heard them goading each other into teaching their fellow man not to cooperate with the Australian government. It was madness I heard from their lips. They were the drunken lips of dogs waiting to pounce. I said nothing. I did nothing to stop them. When the police came, I lied and said I knew nothing. I climbed Mount Pitt out of morbid curiosity to see what I had wrought. That image of the house whose beams I placed - whose trusses I tied - in the distance - engulfed in flames - is seared upon my mind. I did nothing to stop it. Do you know how sorry I am? If I told you that somebody died in that fire, would it be in your power to forgive me?

– ACT II, line 183

FLETCHER: (massaging) Don't get testy. This is for your own good.

ALICE: Tell me something in Norfuk.

FLETCHER: Like what?

ALICE: I don't know. I like the way it sounds.

FLETCHER: Watawieh.

ALICE: I know what that means. It means, "Hi! How are you?"

FLETCHER: We gwen rama morla night.

ALICE: What does that mean?

FLETCHER: It means, "Let's go fishing tomorrow night."

ALICE: I am so sick of fish.

(MS. JACKSON begins to unfold the sofa bed.)

FLETCHER: Were you just outside?

MS. JACKSON: Yes.

FLETCHER: Did you happen to see Kokomo or Alice?

MS. JACKSON: I think I saw them both. I can't be certain; it's dark out there.

FLETCHER: Do you mind pointing me in the right direction?

MS. JACKSON: One moment. Homo, you won't have anything to sleep in.

LESBIAN: I'll just sleep in this.

MS. JACKSON: Don't be silly. I'll get you one of Kokomo's nightshirts.

LESBIAN: That's not-

– ACT II, lines 274-282

(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

Usage of Night 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.

Grandmother got halfway through tossing her hand. She lifted her finger again. "It's funny you should mention St. Andrew. Cherry branches weren't the only things girls used. On St. Andrew's Eve, if a girl swept the floor with a new broom at the stroke of midnight, the dirt would reveal the face of her future husband. It would help if she were stepping on a piece of silver. On the other hand, she could also try looking up a chimney. That was my favorite. You had to do it naked."

– from “St. Andrew's Eve,” a story of love that may calm one's sense of distaste depending on your outlook

On the other hand, she started to compliment you. I always thought it was painfully out of place. I wonder if it embarrassed Albert. If he had come that night, I doubt our friend, Nike, would have been so bold. He and Indiana wouldn't stop flirting.

A finger up the bum was Steve O's favorite cure for a headache. It wasn't always like that. He used to enjoy digging his thumbs into the tops of his eyeballs. At least in the morning. By the afternoon it was all about the booze. A half bottle of wine did the trick. By night it was a decent wank. If he was sober.

– from “A Finger Up The Bum,” a gay fiction story that doesn't take itself seriously, but what you make of it is up to you

Mary babbled late into the night. She was like a broken robot. The rest of us were falling asleep staring at the fire. Steve decided to invite her inside the tent. I made sure I wasn't the one sleeping next to her. Peter did the same. It didn't guarantee we would survive the night but we both felt it increased our chances.

– from “Woodstock,” a life story based on true life, namely the author's

Indiana's unsolicited effort to inform, her continuous concern for speaking, that pressing aural nightmare which persists even after you've pledged to avoid its acoustical tyranny, that vocal plying, that musical stream of input once you've gotten used to it, that involuntary sickness betrayed something deliberately hushed, waiting in the dark, reaching for somebody's arm, whispering its presence as she punctuated her sentences, turning her head to stare vacantly past a shoulder for a moment to catch her breath, before turning once more to speak. It seemed like the panic of an animal who knows it's about to be eaten. It was tinged with a growing sense of resignation.

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.
