reading piece

Kenyon HaikuHere's a visual representation of the piece I wrotefor/readat the graduate reading this Thursday. Really, it pulls together some of my obsessions, whether wordish or themish, and it's written to be read aloud more than anything.

Oh, and I wrote it based on a light constraint: it's based on the haiku-set I wrote for nm's birthday (which was further based on the constraint of only using Foster Beach signs to construct haiku's) in that I had to use all of the words from each haiku within each prose-section, although I was allowed to change part-of-speech.

I think the piece went over well at the reading, but I'm not entirely sure as I was feverish with food-poisoning at the time.
