minimalist free verse
In this poem, language transcends itself into the pure music of transfiguration, escaping definition into the realm of the music of the experience. The imagery of the letters in the alphabet levitating out of the sentences and phrases is kind of the central image of this action, and I wanted a density of sound, repeating patterns of slightly changing forms of words to produce the musical elements of change. Form follows function here. It's a very different way to make music in language, and I'm always fooling around with these new forms, trying to stretch poetry out of what has been, into what it might become. estoryPays one point and 2 member cents.
