Kenneth Goldsmith's script for "Lift Off"

At the Zinc bar launch for All the Whiskey in Heaven: Selected Poems, Kenneth Goldsmith read "Lift Off"  – a poem he also write about in Uncreative Writing: Managing Language in the Digital Age. The poem, which was originally published in Poetic Justice (Baltimore: Pod Books, 1979),  is a transcription from the correction tape of an IBM Selectric typewriter.
