Sometimes I play around with different ways to present the same words on the page. This is a redo just out of curiosity to see how it works in block format rather than more traditional lines. If you’re interested in seeing the original, you can find it here. I realized I haven’t really shared much here lately, but I have been working on some things, but not ready to show the newest projects yet. So I think I’ll just starting showing some of my “process” of writing the assorted things I’m messing around with these days.
neither god nor muse on a train in a nasty mood coming from the outside from the inside the source is unimportant the poet is the poet is the real thing Yeats is Spicer’s ghost father the poem drives the poet parasite dictating to us (the Martian) Yeats’ wife possessed by spooks “I’m here to give you metaphors”
I’m currently working on an erasure poem of an entire book. Is there such a thing as an epic erasure? That seems to better describe this undertaking. I actually completed the book’s erasure and now I’m working to format and edit it. I’m sort of excited. It’s been quite a project. 🙂
Here’s a brief sample of a small part of one of the poems I found hiding in the text of the book I’ve been erasing. Stayed tuned for more on this project.
UPDATE! The book is now in print! Click on the book cover for details!
