Sample text

Such comments (and they are just as frequent in the alternative poetry worlds as in the mainstreams) mask the fact that conventional and traditional literary writing reinscribe the meanings implicit in their forms but that poetry is not limited to this activity of reinscription (lovely or comforting or pleasurable as it sometimes may be). There may be no pure outside (chorus: "no pure outside" "no pure outside") but there isn't no pure inside either (chorus: "no inside ether, no inside ether").

Yet I'm never far from what's for me, anyhow, verbal pleasure, because if you demand a lot from words all of sudden they start to talk back to you in the most intimate and also engaging way, and that engagement has a lot to do with the intensified soundscape of the poem and also with the acceleration of play (puns, rimes, misnomers, vowel and consonant repetition, and the dozens of other related devices of a trade in language). I figure if a reader or listener can't make out a particular reference or train of thought, that's okay-it's very much the way I experience things in everyday life.

In practice, the incommensurability among these frames has led to a Balkanization of theory.
