tongue 83

My visual poem tongue 83 has been published in issue 10 The Projectionist’s Playground.

I’ve been told that it’s difficult to read, and though I’m happy to have multiple strange readings of it, part of it was intended to be read a certain way

what is the thing that connects the tongue
over a matter / doesn’t matter / over a fondness / are we enemies?

are we enemies was borrowed from one of Kafka’s letters to… Max Brod? I’m not sure, it’s been a while since I wrote my essay on him.

Aside from the Sidekick Books Headbooks this is my first visual poem in print. I’ve posted pictures of it on Twitter though plan to upload a copy of the original image at some point.

Copies of The Projectionist’s Playground are available here.
