FOUND-19

(based on the first 19 links posted on my Facebook feed, March 2020)


Crisis events influence, and are influenced by, what is said or written; these texts in their turn will lead to new texts, even new genres, which will then co-create new discourses or reinforce/subvert existing ones; the discourses then may produce certain (un)intended non-discursive outcomes.

(from Antoon De Rycker and Zuraidah Mohd Don’s Discourse in crisis, crisis in discourse)

1

death drove home

sent a letter to the community

impossible to trace

2

and then grief, like a stumbling cheque forger,

comes tripping across the threshold

of my supermarket heart

3

a little music and soul

three months of free guitar lessons

you can learn in lockdown

4

it’s astounding

time is fleeting

madness takes its toll

5

coughed at or spit on

a long tradition of blaming

a mirror for society

6

the waves of the web

the places we must stay

three emoji roses

7

a barometer of humanity

language linked to memory

simple words repeated

8

I turned up in some harsh doomed city on another plane

at the end

I was holding my breath

9

wow! this looks delicious

but u didn’t make enough

for company

10

home

a social movement

a new campaign

11

incredible profiteering, corporate opportunism

daylight robbery

leaders swapping worst practices

12

*right fist punches electric guitar*

*wall of protestors link arms*

*a crow’s wings sweep*

13

the landlord's here to visit

but we can, you know we can

rent strike april 1st 2020

14

sweeping aid package

a staggering backing

to help bridge financial bottlenecks

15

to no surprise

a need to punish the poor

in the midst of a terrible crisis

16

in dire hours, art keeps us sane

offers free delivery

on the brink of disaster

17

a deep-purple bruise

uneasy-listening

new shades of glumness

18

semi-outdoor exhibit

the sunning rock macropod

a future bird

19

they all want to share your life

ain't that enough to make you want to hang on

hang on, hang on (hang on in there)
