From Bhanu Kapil's definition of Humanimal on Urban Dictionary (and here on Lemon Hound Alex Leslie and Ray Hsu on Lemon Hound awesomely respond to her definitions with their own). I love these found forms of Kapil ephemeral activism, like when she was in a bookshop and put a Post-It on this book guiding readers to this far superior book of the same title.
Lemon Hound also points to Kapil's post about having "Monkey" rejected from Urban Dictionary. She needs to do a book around/about these. Like a Dictionary of Received and Rejected Ideas.
Like Woolf wrote on Mansfield. Bhanu I think is the contemporary American writer I wish I wrote like, who is doing things so strange & tricky & sublime. Now I have just compared myself to Virginia Woolf. This is not what I meant. At all. Just referring to women writers, so I am gendering both of us, unfairly sort of, maybe, does it have to do with the body at all, but referring to jealousy, or competitiveness, which is not what I feel towards Bhanu at all, I just want to read Bhanu. And we are publishing Schizophrene at Nightboat, and Woolf was Mansfield's editor...My head is not this bloated I am merely tripping over my typing tongue. Tired. Anyway. I will erase this whole paragraph. But Bhanu is in a way a Mansfield even though I am 1/1,00000000000 of a Woolf, as Mansfield was the mystic, especially when she was dying of TB and she would dance naked in France at the Gurdjieff Institute. And then which one was Mansfield in Women in Love? Gudrun. Yes. Right.
