A new poem project! Alphabet: A Rolodex Poem

Erasure and material poetry artist Jenni Baker (please read our wonderful conversation, and have a look at her incredible erasures) invited me early this year to make a rolodex poem. It was a fantastic experience that had me, each morning, really studying a letter, a through z. The result was an austere project, but one of which I am incredibly proud–especially as it takes place with extraordinary projects by  M. NourbeSe Philip, Lillian-Yvonne Bertram, Micheal Leong, Evan Kleekamp, James W. Moore, Barbara Balfour, and Collier Nogues. I would love if you have a look at the project and a few of my thoughts about it here.

Or you can just watch my weirdo promotional video, in which I sing the alphabet:
