“Time capital”: digitized, metronomic, post-Fordist, western, Amazon-Primed, punitive, humancentric and white, proceeds toward a horizon of profit and destruction, seemingly unveeringly progressive and inevitable. The myriad ways and possibilities of thinking and interacting within time are occluded by this dominating and domineering phenomenon of time management. How do language practices and philosophies of communication intervene on legislated modes of duration, rhythm, and succession in order to reorient human animals with mutual presences: fauna and flora, and all life forces, decentering the white capitalist human clock/progress/destruction/imperialist/narcissist campaigns of experience. In the era of mass extinction where the losses are exponential, what does it mean to challenge disciplining mechanisms that organize and extinguish life? How can we do time differently, rebuilding in the place of the industrial military prison economy a time economy of reciprocity? How can our role as poets and initiators of language exchange reorient practices that negotiate how we move and breath within timeframes?
