Description

One of the many things poetry—be it concrete, visual, sound, or academically sanctioned poetry—should do is make us look at language in new ways because looking at language in new ways allows an exterior and interior view of the world.

Many definitions of concrete poetry talk in terms of using the stuff of language—the words and letters, the signifiers as well as the signified—as a material for making poetry and meaning.

The work presented here is beyond minimal; it is fragmentary.
