What’s absurd about Pop-Culture is that it doesn’t include anything abstract.
This lack of absurdity includes various cacophonies, sounds effects
but varied as
The noises a cash register produces
& melting snow filling the sewers. But these hip cacophonies appear
In simple places. An orator’s speech, specifically, a politician’s
Repeated catch phrase. “They’reeeeee great!” Or more complex
“we shall fight on the seas and oceans, we shall fight with growing confidence and growing strength in the air, we shall defend our island, whatever the cost may be. We shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender.”
Surrender we must to the notion that we’re plain.
But with this critique one must establish what makes the absurd special
And the everyday, not. What the anti-realist contributes
Is nothing at all. This style of nihilism means that from nothing
Something has begun. What’s unique about nothing
Is that it can be anything.
Picasso’s shapes readjusted to fit modern times
Are still the same shapes of yore. Joyce’s narrations
Compete with the banal every time an academic
Requires proper grammar. What is the Pop-Culture of everyday
And why is it valued as a necessity?
