FRAGMENTS:queer, deconstructionism, spectral geography, Sebald and myself:theory in poetry

Suffolk=aimless

Periphrastic

Wandering=

Queer=

Different=other=

The sebaldian narrator

In counterpoint

With himself

His SELVES.

…………………………………..

Narrators disassociated

From

them selves;

Characters

(Anti-protagonists)

Seperated out from

them selves;

Wraithlike

They walk

As spectres

Through their

Versions of

Lives:

Ambros and Cosmo

(Go on: say it, critics)

The homosexual couple

Sitting down to their dinner

Centrepiece-

But no-piece/peace-

Of the hotel

Dining Room,

The projector

Screen

For others’

Expectations;

Shadow-selves.

Dr. K

Frightened of the

Nazi

“Jackboot of history”.

Austerlitz,

Trying to remember

Trying to forget

……………………………………………………………

sebaldian narrator

Happening upon

The theatre of

Annihilation

Orford Ness

Then

Disappearing into

Dunwich Heath’s

Labarynthine lostness

……………………………………..

{Sebald’s narrators and characters deconstruct before your eyes-always}

Written after an evening of desuetudinous wandering through a humid, laden summer’s night
