These, a cultural introduction

Getting to know the word from all angles...

Michal's thinking over the potential of expanding his mammoth Fiction Corpus with some truly brilliant fairy tale stories; cites fatigueDictionary icon

I don't question the idea of harnessing English as a common language for the world. I don't trust in the unspectacular game plan by which the English language is taught.Pointer

Refining one's dexterity with a language isn't like developing a finer porcelain. A language - a common language - is not merely a tool that you can teach yourself to wield with a greater amount of precision. A language can not be isolated from the shared logic of a society 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 a pupil to recite English is to cheat him out of its cultural context. An informed teacher has to have a strategy for introducing it; the perceptive student ventures out to seek it.

A dictionary - properly used - can become an influential tool. A decent dictionary will describe a language on the basis of a specific corpus, a body of written language of various size and consistency. Such a corpus could contain anything from a book about literature to some true stories. I watched many nights pass creating my "wonderful" Fiction Corpus in order to form a special genre 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 assembled a million words and I have codified them, reformulating them - not simply to teach an American language but to describe the human soul, and to goad that soul or spirit not just to recite but to happen.

A Better Way to Define English: Grouped into Eight Types of WordsPointer

Type 8 Answers the Question, "Which?"

The 8 types of words can be associated with the days of the week in the Acceptance calendar. You can remember that the last type of word answers the question "Which?" by asking yourself which day is the most important day of the week. The answer is Sunday, or Victory Day, which is a day for everyone to celebrate the art of being human.

Michal's Dictionary:
Understanding the word These

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 these in some kind of way.

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

Usage of These 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.

"Do not seek greatness for the sake of being great. You are worthy of more than that. Do not seek power for the sake of wielding it, or influence for the sake of exercising it. You will only find yourselves consuming Your brothers. Do not seek wealth for the sake of its luxuries. You will only be consumed. Above all else, do not regret your lack of these things. Do not even admit a lack. You do not need to feel inadequate. You don't need to feel like you're halfway there. You don't need somebody else's greatness to be great, somebody else's power to wield it, or somebody else's influence to exercise it. You don't need somebody else's wealth to enjoy its luxuries. You just need somebody else - that's it - and remember that, before you sacrifice a living person to dreams. Nobody likes that. That's what makes us sick and paranoid. That's how we fall into one another's traps. If not for those sacrifices, one might be able to trust people around here.

Verse 197 from the chapter called Security

"You think these guys can shoot some heroin?" asked Columbus.

Verse 545 from the chapter called Adolescence

Your father knew what had happened. The girl had blamed him, the temporary guest, instead of the real culprit, who, besides being some sort of 'interest,' was also the girl's permanent neighbor. It wasn't hard for Jesus to prove these suspicions. One day, not too long after these developments, Jesus called the girl over and asked her if she wanted to play. She said, "Sorry, but" - it took her a brief moment of hesitation - "I can't play with you anymore." She left. Your father was quite upset.

Verse 229 from the chapter called Childhood

Reserve Army units were small and efficient. They were specialists. Perhaps these weapons were for them. I had seen Reserve Army troops guarding University Bridge. What were they doing here? thought Jesus. Were they here to help the Brigade? Where the hell was the Brigade? The streets were almost empty. So was the alley, until there came a white electric truck floating around the corner.

Usage of These 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.

His most recent visit has confirmed my opinion: Nike is a slave to his own comfort - and his bonds are such, and his potential freedom of such an unreasonable nature, that Reason cannot help him: for Nike is also a slave to Reason, and comfort is very reasonable. Naturally, I would otherwise praise his analytical devotion, but in these circumstances, I must accept that his mind and his body, that the appetite and reason are conspiring against his soul.

– Title 3, Regarding a Dream, Chapter 1, The First Day, Part 1, Victory & Calendar Reform, Section 1, Cancer, Paragraph 8, Clauses 1-2

Your presence in your words was comforting, and I confess that, until now, I have suffered from your absence, and I held myself, by all accounts, among the lonelier of men - and all despite my attractive company. But without you, Sister, I am like a cloud without a storm, like a steppe without a fire, like a stable without a horse: I am too open for these times; I am too vulnerable to be sitting in this hospital by myself. Luckily, there's this letter I'm writing; your letter I have too: I keep it in my breast pocket. I have underlined all the best parts, and the parts with which I disagree - but those are of little importance.

– Title 3, Regarding a Dream, Chapter 1, The First Day, Part 1, Victory & Calendar Reform, Section 2, Poetics, Paragraph 4, Clauses 8-12

For you, dear sister, I remain devoted, but concede I must, for these events are disrupting: these dreams of vice and violence are the product of many things, including circumstances beyond my control, of course, but, above all, I think I must blame this exhausted imagination of mine. I think writing has weakened me: this constant application of my mind, this researching of recent memory, living through things I already saw and did by imagining them - if only I could imagine them better than when I first saw them! But these things are no clearer now than how they once were. They are simply more tiring.

– Title 3, Regarding a Dream, Chapter 3, The Third Day, Part 1, Family & Welfare Reform, Section 1, Relations Between Siblings, Paragraph 3

Macy had adopted a very serious demeanor; leaning back on the couch across from me, the distance between us now unfathomable, I knew, even from the corner of my failing eye, that the tension on his face was betraying the turmoil of his body. My head turned itself back to his, and with my twitching eye under his control, a feeling of dread began to well in my stomach; I wondered what I had done. As he said my name, twice, softly and slowly, he lifted himself and said, "I have always loved you, always - from the very beginning. I stressed and sweated my love, hoping that our friendship would somehow in someway, in whatever context, allow me to say that I loved you. But you were always too careful, and I was too afraid to risk our relationship. You were too precious." These were not his exact words mind you. I paraphrase for the sake of poetic brevity, but I do assure you that my reconstruction captures the essence of his speech.

– Title 1, Regarding Peaches and Bananas, Part 2, Section 7, Trying to Kiss, Paragraph 8

Now there is only so much I can do: I am trying to point you in the right direction. It is my belief that Indiana was infected many years ago, when you were still a child on the shores of Lake Ontario. You are not to blame; but you are no longer a child, and the first thing we must accept is that this sort of thing is indeed a verruca vulgaris: it is a common affliction, as pervasive in society as in the bodies of those infected. Nevertheless, each man must face his own feelings first, and alone; but when you do, remember: it is a thirsty saturation: these feelings; you will not satisfy yourself by slowly and meticulously draining them. You must drown them, and sincerely hope that they will eventually wash away.

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.

"You may have been prepared to forgive these men," he said. "If you had begged me for their lives, I might have spared them. You neglect to consider not only did they transgress against us; through their abuse of their own god, they transgressed against the Asha, the world order. If they had taken you by force, I doubt their blood would be staining this deck."

– from “In the Beginning, There was Gog,” a fantasy story featuring the cruelty of the earth

"I can tell. It's hard-under these circumstances. You don't have time to see every angle. A man's gotta be careful. That one I saw back there isn't gonna last long. By the time we circle around, she'll be gone."

"This rubbernecking is insane."

– from “Paris Is For Rapists, Too,” a ghost story about a woman and a man

"These girls aren't bad."

"Look over there."

"Where? Nice. I give her a seven. The other one is ugly. I'll give her a two."

"Is that guy holding a snake?"

– from “Paris Is For Rapists, Too,” a ghost story featuring not-so-beautiful people

The heads fell one by one. Magog watched in horror as they rolled past her. She saw their mouths still gaping. She cringed. She seemed unhappy.

Gog noticed the look. He said, "If you knew how close I came to death, you would not so quick to mourn these men."

"I rejoice," said Magog, "to be back in your arms. There is no need to reassure you with wild shouts. I knew you would come."

"There is something more than dignity holding you back. I would say it were the bloodshed, but you claim to be a warrior. Perhaps the gold I have showered upon you has finally softened your mettle."

– from “In the Beginning, There was Gog,” a fantasy story featuring a warlord

"Clark," said Shephard. "Do you mind watching TV for a while? I have something I'd like to discuss with this young, beautiful woman. I promise I won't be long." Clark squinted. He didn't want to go in. Shephard beckoned. "Remember: play nicely. If you have any problems, I'll be in the next room." Clark was too confused to argue.

Shephard turned to Pepsi. "Why do these boys trust you? What's your secret?"

Usage of These 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.

GREY GOOSE: Not to mention this island's penchant for making the most grotesque of assumptions - never mind that. I did a terrible thing in burning down that house: I know it. I've been paying for it ever since. I'm finally sorry for doing it. I don't think I could've said that this morning. Something's changed. I don't want to be like that anymore. I don't want to do those things. I think the Australians should mind their own business; that's neither here nor there. If you didn't squeal my name to the police, somebody else did. I'm going to find that person - not to burn down his house - to talk to him calmly and rationally: to put these absurd suspicions to rest. Everybody deserves to hear the truth, especially the people you love. I was kicked out not because of my reputation or the looks you were getting in town. It wasn't because you thought I killed that girl. It was because I hurt you. I hurt you a long time ago and I've always been too selfish to realize it. I expected you to understand - even though I never properly explained myself. It had nothing to do with you. You were perfect. I loved you. I was afraid of being a father. You know my childhood - or perceived lack thereof. I was insecure. I was scared to death. I panicked. I didn't talk to anybody about it because I was ashamed. I thought that, if you knew, you would despise me for it. You were always so strong and fearless. I envied you. When your family came and asked me what was going on, I lied. I acted as if I didn't care about you anymore: as if I had lost interest. Nothing could've been further from the truth. I was an idiot. I was such an idiot. I'm sorry for that. I'm so sorry for everything. I won't trouble you anymore. Even if you and your friend want to move in together, I won't trouble you. File divorce papers in the morning. You can keep the house - and the sofa bed - and the mattress - and the comforter - and the dishwasher. You can even keep the cook - and the boy.

– ACT II, line 356

FLETCHER: Bigger than your husband.

LESBIAN: Or so I'm told. I didn't actually see them. What I saw was smaller: about six or seven feet. They had these big beaks and enormous eyes made from concentric circles: each circle colored differently from the next. They looked like crazed chickens dancing around like that. Of course, with masks so big, the focus turns to a dancer's legs, the swaying of his hips-

MS. JACKSON: And everything in between.

ALICE: Ms. Jackson!

LESBIAN: His arms are busy holding up the mask.

MS. JACKSON: I'm not surprised: making women do the work.

LESBIAN: I wonder if any Polynesians use a big mask. Would your cook know?

MS. JACKSON: Probably not. Where is my cook? Does she know the kitchen still needs cleaning?

FLETCHER: Why are you looking at me?

– ACT I, lines 424-432

KOKOMO: After you.

GREY GOOSE: I won't argue with that. I should come first anyway.

KOKOMO: One of these days, Grey Goose, you'll realize that you're a good person. Let's hope I don't kill you first.

GREY GOOSE: Let's go.

KOKOMO: I'm coming.

GREY GOOSE: Good. I assure you: it won't be the last time.

KOKOMO: Don't get cheeky with me!

GREY GOOSE: After you.

KOKOMO: Get in there!

– ACT I, lines 871-879

(A washing machine buzzes.)

KOKOMO: The laundry calls - as if it knew with certainty my mind had wandered. Curse these infernal machines!

– ACT II, line 29

MS. JACKSON: If he came to me repentant of his sins - I mean all of them - I would forgive him. I would consider allowing him to return to this house. Do you think I don't want him? I want him more than you could ever know. I want him in a way that, unfortunately, I have never had him. I won't settle for less than I deserve. That's all I'm going to say on the subject. It upsets me. Your father has behaved strangely in the past; as of late, his actions have been frightening me. Maybe it is the climate around here - I'm not going to take any chances. (to KOKOMO) I want you to watch out for him, in case he should try to violate you.

FLETCHER: That is unwarranted.

MS. JACKSON: It may have taken a hundred and fifty years for another murder to occur, but we are not immune to rape. We need only bear witness to what took place on Pitcairn in recent times. Six men were found guilty of sexual offenses. That's almost the entire adult male population over there. I'm not going to let that happen around here - not while I'm alive. Do you understand? As soon as you're done with this mess, Kokomo, I would like these towels to go to the laundry. We have all of Lesbian's things to wash.

KOKOMO: I have a question, ma'am.

MS. JACKSON: Yes?

KOKOMO: Will our guest from New Zealand be staying with us for considerably longer than planned? If that's the case, I'm going to have to make a new schedule.

MS. JACKSON: I don't know, dear. I don't think so, but, then again, you can never be sure, can you? Just stick to the current schedule for now. I'm sorry if you've been overworked.

KOKOMO: That is not my concern at all.

MS. JACKSON: I just want Homo to feel as welcome as possible. Thank you for your continued cooperation. Excuse me.

Usage of These 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.

An ocean drifts below. A distant shore brings towers of glass and steel. Workers perched atop unfinished spires beam proud industrious smiles. These are the spoils of victory. My comrade and I drift to the ground. We find nothing to celebrate.

– from “Shovels Fall,” an interesting story about the cycle of armed struggle throughout history

Proctor pushed him away. "You lied to me," he said. "You knew I was in that letter. That's why you sneaked downstairs and changed it."

"I had to protect you," said John.

"From what?" said Proctor. "You're the one who killed your husband. Are you trying to frame me?"

"I saved you," said John. "How dare you talk to me like this. After all these months of listening to you and him. You think I couldn't hear you? These floors are pretty thin."

"You idiot," said Proctor. "I wasn't his lover."

– from “We Need To Talk,” a mystery story featuring more than one dead body put in a weird position

Orbitz Número Dos shook his head. "It's not different," he said. "I was hoping it would be. I've already heard myself saying these things."

"You were standing where I'm standing?" asked Orbitz Number One. Orbitz Número Dos stared blankly. "Are you saying there's no way to change the future or the past?"

Orbitz Número Dos came back to his senses. He said, "The present is everything. The rest is memory. I remember the past. I remember the future. I remember this moment."

"If I touch you," said Orbitz Number One, "will you disappear?"

– from “The Death and Life of Captain Orbitz,” a science fiction romance inspired by my reading of Lem, if you know who that is

My father never lied to my mother about going up to see his old girlfriend. He lied to me. So I wouldn't say anything. So my mother could find out about it later. From the receipts. It was part of the grand scheme. To bring things to a head. To back up the toilet of their lives. To bring up the festering crap they had tucked away in their basement all these years. Like the accusation that my father had raped my mother. On some night twelve years ago. When she had said no. And he had done it anyway. I wanted to laugh but my wife was there. Her father raped her mother. Allegedly. My wife is convinced its true. Despite only having heard one side of it. If it were as bad as it sounds I doubt her parents would still be together. But they are. Like my parents. They've reconciled. For all intents and purposes they're a happily married couple. They hold hands in the street. While my wife wont sleep with me. Because on some rainy afternoon two years ago I told her I wanted to rape her.

– from “The Backed-Up Toilet,” a literature story based on something that happened, namely to the author

I killed a cat. It was an accident. I was trying to cut its fur. I wanted to show Kelly the ugliness of a shaved pussy. I don't deserve two years of prison for it. Cruelty to animals is nothing next to how humans treat each other. They put me in the same prison I used to guard. At the very least I know which of these bitches aren't shaved. Those are the ones I can fuck. Even when I was a kid I couldn't stand a bare floor. All the blood stains and grime and guts on the linoleum in the kitchen. It was disgusting. It always curled up at the edges. Like Kelly's toes. As soon as I get out of here I'll find that girl. I'll get her the biggest razor I can find.

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.
