"I take details from photos, books, magazines and transform them…"
--Spencer Selby

Reading through Martin Edmond's introductory essay to Spencer Selby's visual poetry in FLUSH CONTOUR (Otoliths, 2008), I was reminded that one of the greatest collage-works ever, regardless of how you feel about Christianity, is the Bible. For the Bible wasn't written so much as it was gathered together from different -- and even disagreeing -- sources.

A train of thought that further leads me to nota bene that Jesus Christ didn't write a single Gospel. He embodied Gospel. That's a tough poetics to beat.

Jes file this under the "I'ma jes sayin' category", if you will.


And, btw, a review copy of FLUSH CONTOUR, along with many other recent releases are available for review for Galatea Resurrects. Review details HERE.
