(PAD #019) linked (mathematically)

and today
I am an idea

I will take a poem


someone else’s

I will look inside
its phrases

seize them
in my own tight grasp

and write the phrase
into a poem

a link
from poem

to poem
and back again

one hundred

the mathematics
of literature
is a poem

    • I did an exercise once before, Alli. A group of poets chose a phrase from an Amy Lowell poem. Each chose a phrase and wrote their own poem. The product was a hyperlinked AMy Lowell that led into all sorts of universes.

      I think we did the same with Prufrock.

      I have in mind to mess with the same idea.

    • I’ve started it as a project, Dwight – The Linkages Project – on the menu at the top of my front page. I’ll smooth out the links when I get time, but the idea is there.

      Feel free to claim a phrase and let me have the link to include.
