It was an interesting exercise. The fevered writing in response to Terry’s found quotes I approached as a timed stream of consciousness experiment. For the writing of the poems from Terry’s fevered writing in response to my found quotes, I decided to choose words in the order they were written. This was a method that provided some sense of “form” that intuitively I felt this exercise would benefit from, and I think it did. I also decided not to alter the words in Terry’s fevered writing (to not change the tense or make nouns into verbs etc.); this rule I sensed would support the imagination in choosing the right word for it’s originality and the structure of the meaning of the poem. It was fun and a great exercise in focusing attention on language, and for me, structuring meaning in a poem.
