Using his son as a stand-in for himself. The story must be told
no matter what fictionalizations are necessary.

“When my father gave me his typewriter, I had absolutely no preferences for what I would write. Anything at all just to be typing. Not because I liked typing but because I liked something about the accumulating print-covered papers.”

                spindrift; a seaspray,
                magical chairs and a mystery

“Precisely because we said nothing.

We were about to say something.

But we remained on the edge of an impossible confidence.”

ypolita press

Manifesto. Womanifesto. Humanifesto.

Ypolita: Chaucerian spelling of Hippolyta, Queen of the Amazons. The Hippolyta of The Knight's Tale. But a bit British, with her knitting and needlework, a cup of tea. One breast. Bow and arrow put away neatly.

Ypolita Press seeks to publish texts that mix the lyrical with the abstract, the sensuous with the cerebral, the continuous with the discontinuous, duality with multiplicity, the quiet with the loud, pre-language with post-language. Post-experimental lyricism. The romanticization of the feminine with that romanticization's deconstruction. As well as the romanticization of the masculine with that romanticization's deconstruction. And so too the romanticization of the hermaphrodite with that romanticization's deconstruction.

And enantiodromia. From Wikipedia:

"a concept introduced by psychiatrist Carl Jung where the superabundance of any force inevitably produces its opposite. It is equivalent to the principle of equilibrium in the natural world, in that any extreme is opposed by the system to restore balance.

Literally, 'running counter to,' referring to the emergence of the unconscious opposite in the course of time. This characteristic phenomenon practically always occurs when an extreme, one-sided tendency dominates conscious life; in time an equally powerful counterposition is built up, which first inhibits the conscious performance and subsequently breaks through the conscious control."
