This is part of a larger project of what I call “accelerated reading”; a form of reading that is endemic and naturalized (I could say “essential”) to the experience of living in the bluster of 21st Century capitalism. In modernity, text is everywhere and the only agency to be found (sometimes) is in the rebirth of the author through a frenetic reading practice of the text that is everywhere and all around us, all the time. Books await. The Cosmos was partly written with the assistance of a stack of 2015 issues of Cosmopolitan.
Sean Braune’s first book of philosophy, Language Parasites: Of Phorontology, appeared in 2017 from Punctum Books. His poetry has appeared in The Puritan, Rampike, Poetry is Dead, and elsewhere.
This is Braune’s second above/ground press chapbook, after the vitamins of an alphabet (2016).
