Cut-Off Noir Simulacrum

The philosopher of the hyperreal a grand hype
apartment with 50 television sets and pictures of America
even if Baudrillard had not existed

it would have been necessary to invent him
everything was a non-event, an illusion, a simulacrum
part of his legend to loathe all forms of culture

stark noir fantasy world
the colours more radically concentrated
advancing towards the storm-battered coast

--Clark Allison
