Can someone write an essay or blog post about my poetry that uses the phrase "comic enjambment?" I don't care what else you write. Just the phrase "comic enjambment" and maybe a picture of yourself with your shirt off.

It doesn't even have to be a positive essay. You can talk shit about "comic enjambment" and say that I've "abandoned my lower-middle-management-class roots." You can quote Nietzsche or Ric Flair. It's really all freedom, see?

If you Google the phrase you'll notice it's only been used once online. That means $$$.

I'll write a blog essay about your poetry if you take care of mine. The biological term for this is "jerking each other off."

Think of it like a Nickelodeon gameshow! Go.

UPDATE: Blake Butler has written one and I have written one for him. More! More.

Mike Young's poetic teetaw caused a cosmic enjambment in my scrote, which once infected, defined a nation, and that nation was neon purple & made of email, and I left that nation with Mike Young's mother's mother, and Mike Young's mother's mother was the dude who scripted most of Legend of Zelda II.

Mike Young's poetry has the "good fat" of a ripe avocado and everybody knows it. When he concluded his collection, "The Kindhearted Enemies of Mike Young," with "I want to dip / my comic. In jam," all of America wondered what "comic. in jam" meant.

Mike Young's sometimes painfully multivalent hollering comes at a time when we were just getting used to a bunch of weak shit being at the center of this, what, this pantomime passing itself off as a dedicated dialectic about/with/towards lettered competence now, today, in (hoo boy) full-throated AMERICAN BOHEMIANISM. The comic enjambment barely begins to account for it. What we are really chewing on here are our own inverted esophagi, spangled with the nonchalant ratatouille flecks of whatever reamed-out discourse looked "OK" at the time. Mike Young is not down with that. Wake the fuck up.

In the Family Double Dare of the heart, Mike Young's comic enjambment demands no less than that we confront our father and sisters (off-camera, before taping starts) and work out our issues so that the whole family can rely on each other and function as a team. Only in this way, Young's comic enjambment suggests, do we stand a chance at completing the Physical Challenges and making it to the final Obstacle Course, where, of course, after two rounds of trial we are immediately to be tried again. As Kierkegaard has it in _Fear and Trembling_: "The true knight of faith is a witness, never a teacher..." To put this in terms of Mike Young's comic enjambment, we must think not just *of witness* but of *what is witnessed.* The closest analog comes to us from W.G. Sebald in the "All'estero" chapter of _Vertigo_. I am, obviously, thinking of the episode where the narrator is suddenly overtaken by a fear of assassination and flees Verona on the night train to Innsbruck. Delayed at a stop along the route, the narrator notes that "[t]he rain turned to snow. And a heavy silence lay upon the place, broken only by the bellowing of some nameless animals waiting in a siding to be transported onwards." This describes not only the interior logic and executive process of Mike Young's comic enjambment, but also, in a roundabout way (Kierkegaard again: "Faith *is* this paradox" [emphasis mine]) it describes the way in which first-time reader's of Mike Young's comic enjambment both receive and internalize the text as an extension of the poetic device, and vice versa, maybe.

Paul Young's graceful teetaw triggered the cosmic enjambment during my scrote, that as soon as contaminated, described the country, which country had been fluorescents crimson & made from e-mail, as well as We remaining which country along with Paul Young's mom's mom, as well as Paul Young's mom's mom had been the actual guy that scripted the majority of Tale associated with Zelda II.
