Lecture interrupted by Children

‘Speculative Realism’;
‘heuristics’; ‘exegesis’.
‘Globalization is a mask’,
runs this woman’s thesis,

‘a dirty neo-liberal weasel-word
for new/old Empire’s insidious
power. And ‘communicative
capitalism’ reveals a hideous

capitulation by the left’…
But the lecture-hall is interrupted:
ushered in with care by Dad,
two exquisite blond-haired kids (twins,
I think), who sit and fidget in the wings,
as we Speculative Realists once did.
