Collapse Board Manifesto: In Poetry Form
by Brigette Adair Herron
Collapse Board has a lot of Manifestos.
I asked my friend about it and he said “Collapse BORED”.
But I don’t take what he says too seriously.
He has cough syrup eyes.
He keeps going on about childbirth and authoritative knowledge.
He thinks there are 12 people in this world and the rest are paste, etc.
I think his taste for bullshit reveals a lust for a home or office.
Do you know about Lester Bangs?
He said “John Coltrane lives! Skronk!”
Do you know about Richard Meltzer?
He was a whore like the rest.
Do you know about Paul Morley?
He said “let them chatter”.
Do you know about Everett True?
He has all of the treasure maps. But he lets you draw your own.
Do you know about Simon Reynolds?
I once sent him some hate mail.
There are more.
I don’t care.
You don’t care.
Let’s just have some fun.
Of course, we hate it when our friends become successful.
But Adam Ant says that there is always room at the top.
