Apostrophe (Misfits) by Bill Kennedy, Darren Wershler-Henry

By Bill Kennedy, Darren Wershler-Henry

Within the culture of the phonetic poems of Hugo Ball and the "readymades" of Dada, this exploration of the character of verse straddles the road among shape and nonsense, among purpose and satisfied twist of fate. An apostrophe is a poetic determine of speech during which anyone, abstraction, or entity is addressed as though it have been current; it's also the identify of a 1993 poem within which each line is an apostrophe. This venture, within which a web seek engine innovatively employs the strains of the 1993 poem as beginning issues for searches, permits the poem to extend and proceed infinitely. the quest engine is inflexible yet indiscriminant, and phrases and words that may no longer another way meet collide and carom away in an unpredictable demeanour. by means of turns poignant and banal, the ensuing poems are demanding and suitable to an international of elevated technological enter and intrusion.
