I haven't (yet) actually read Bruce Andrews, but this piece by Rasula helped me quite a bit in my disorganized and sporadic attempts to figure out what has been going on in avant garde American poetry for the last several decades. So, worth noting... And as an erstwhile student of dynamical systems theories I like Rasula's appeal to those metaphors... such appeals are often not useful - here I think it works.

"It's strange to me, but clear to me, that I can give my attention only to something not worthy of it. Because everything worthy of my attention makes me inattentive - doubly so: first, because it stuns me, and second because it gives rise to reflections that distract me from observing it in detail. But I am happy with this trait of mine, and would not want to live otherwise." - Boris Pasternak, 1928, Letter to Vsevolod Meyerhold.
