Current Poetry Projects

so with all this blogging do i actually work on my writing?

somehow yes...

here are my current poetry-related projects:

the ordinary chronicles of xrkydqax, a series of characters, concepts and phenomena based on the odd combos of letters one is asked to fill out for internet passwords

pain / architecture, a type of plunderverse long poem, perhaps a plunder gloss or a collage plunder which combines text about the work of artists such as Max Ernst, Joseph Cornell, André Breton, Tristan Tzara with terms from a visual dictionary on architecture and variants for pain

Ursuala’s Artist Book, a continuation of an unpublished chapbook size manuscript, which was about a homeless woman who had visions of Saint Ursula. in the continuation, a stranger finds loose pages from her book of painting and collages and pieces together clues about her. inspired by Robert Kroetsch’s The Hornbooks of Rita K.

the missing h poems, unwritten and unexcerpted poems from the Sad Phoenician’s Other Woman (above/ground press, 2008), inspired by The Sad Phoenician by Robert Kroetsch

Kiki de Montparnasse, a long poem about an artist and artist’s model living in Paris in the 1920s who served as a muse and mistress for the photographer and silent film maker Man Ray and was friend, muse and lover of artists, playwrights and the Lost Generation.
