A FONDNESS FOR FOUNDNESS: A POETICS
Everyone is invited to "Books on Chairs" but I also am making books for that project. What's been surprising is how I've taken so quickly to making the type of books I'm creating: books based on what randomly surfaces in my environment (e.g. the junk mail I receive) rather than based on something I intend to write about. Now I'm realizing that these tiny books are just another extension of my long-held poetics practice of wishing "to write in the world in the poem" versus relying on the constraints of my "I" -- and "eye." Of course, in creating works this way, one hopes that one's "I" -- and "eye" -- are also widened in expanse and vision. One hopes ... anyway, here, to date, are books reflecting my fondness for foundness. If the named author is someone else, it's because I "edited" that person's book into its tiny being. (I will update this list as I generate more books.)
