Language as (always) a process of exchange. These are part of a collaborative project with another poet, Gil Ott. The method has been simple, each writing one or two entries then passing the growing manuscript back to the other.
In one context I am audience to the other's writing, in the next my participation is translated into direct response, and so on; it is the circular which seems a more accurate description of what proceeds / what is worth putting pen to paper about. Worth = possible? =/= probable (linear).
