in the comments on bottom of that page some authors are complaining that in this collection poems are credited as theirs, which they didn't write.
so, if that's true, maybe thurston moore did not write "a threshold of smiles" either. but maybe it's only a few authors miscredited.

A threshold of smiles
The fog clinking
. our rib, his moving thigh
We are fierce, his eloquent violence
Dry head beside him
. on a danger
Another gun is happening from the
. clean story, happening
. . and steaming, a powerless
. . . jacket
What are we to
. make of this question, anchors turned
. . like desolation?
We are no smile, though for
. eons we have tasted niggers, gathered howls
. . with our heart and glimpsed our
. . . lustre rustle
We answer the
. hair and measure the thought
Here there is a crowd
Already we can smell
. fun, his beige
. . merriment
We visualise our fun,
. the fair merriment of
. . it
We saunter in early
. spring along the
. . plays
Hear white in your hand
Even though whispers are
. easy, we have
. . whispers in our wilderness
That pale thought has no nature
. for him
Paints and understands, there is no dumbness
. beyond these managers
A blue finger, cold finger,
. dim finger of a tremulous threshold

Thurston Moore

that can't be a thurston poem. no mentions of "marijuana", Nyc" or
"patti"

it really doesnt look like a T poem, as it follows a structure with the "." and the ".." and the "..." and so on. That's really not his style with the written word.

I mean, I'm not saying it isn't his. But from the books I've read by him, doesnt look right.

this is part of the problem with art - nobody can tell the difference. I've never got into my poetry though - i thought about getting those ecstatic peace ones they were putting out though. fucking chicken town

If it is or isn't, what an amazing document. You may speed read to your subconsciousness, 4000 pages of poem! This could only have the effect of amping creativity in your mind.

Nah. They're not that good. Might as well just speed read the entirety of the "Post something completely irrelevent" thread in the non-sonics forum.
