Matt Robertson writes:
“This visual poem was the unplanned result of an afternoon spent shredding boxes of unwanted printed matter. Refuse bags were filled with a farrago of splintered mail, letters, statements, invoices, newspaper clippings, advertising and other ephemera. Some of these small thin shards, with their abstract and concrete marks, fell to the floor. On closer inspection it became apparent that they could be recycled for poetic purposes. Soon 128 individual strips were randomly salvaged and collaged into a single cut-up composition. The resulting score is to be read and vocally sounded in its complete form, in quarters and/or overlaid versions.”
