Abstract: 
“Reveries of a Solitary Biker” is a two-part response to Jean-Jacques Rousseau’s Reveries of the Solitary Walker, in the form of poems printed on a deck of cards and set to music, with an accompanying essay. Both essay and poems consider the difficulties of living an anti-capitalist life, the continued invisibility of much of women’s labour, the paradoxes of daily life, the nature and implications of calculations of value, and the difficulties of sustainability. The piece is intended for performance: audience members will be asked to draw cards from the deck, and the cards drawn will be performed. Each performance will thus be unique, incomplete, and inconclusive.
