Diss Quieting, Silence's Hours: Dis/Course with Joselia Rebekah Hughes

wanted to write a formal description / truly / something almost like “try” / though what i have is FORM.

please join Diss Quieting, Silence’s Hours / we will convene to navigate the gravities of Quiet and Silence / and ask / and start to anwer questions like “What priority shifts when we go from Make Space to Be Space ?”/ “Where does Ability find failures and advantages in our silences?”/When is Quiet ?” / “How do Silences constitute Big Spaces ?” / “What are existing tensions between Hot Take and Cool Give ?” / “What are We even talking about? I thought this was a Poetry Workshop ?”/ And very likely more.

As ending pares,
Show true In Yourself.

Written in sickled cues,
J oselia R ebekah H ughes
