Eighteen Happenings in Six Parts

(after the happening by Allan Kaprow)

they (it) happen(s)
or not
life as it should(n’t) be
or not or was
as it is
audience & audience-r
in a haze
in a blaze
in a phase
whatever happened
or did
performer(ed) as one
or not
no way of knowing
what’s happening or if
it is we (or they)
who play the roles
