Poems & Stuff

I have some collab poems with Angela Veronica Wong up on Super Arrow!

"Improvisation and progression are development, orienting each other. Development, which is motion, is involved with preference. Preference is involved with subjectivity and direction and creates expectation. Writing is involved with movement, development, subjectivity, preference and direction. Subjectivity, which does not depend on pronouns, occurs in movement, development, writing and preference. Improvisation and progression, their motion, include rupture, discontinuity. Discontinuity is startling, shatters expectation. The questions become how great a surprise can you tolerate and how small a surprise can you register? Linkages, not always lineages, like lists and like submerged autonomic systems, have direction."

"Another perspective enjoins, "To speak out beyond his or her historical confinement has been a repeated mission of the concerned artist..." (Max Kozloff)
