tHe mAgic typEwritEr
“It is a parasurrealism
that examines its own
lyrical structure…
a lively, dramatic
edginess, a visceral 
sense of “being there.”
—Charles Borkhuis,
“Writing from Inside Language:
Late Surrealism and Textual Poetry 
in France and the United States,”
Telling It Aslant:Avant-Garde 
Poetics of the 1990s 
1.

“How much of poetry is
unprovoked thought?”
—Clark Coolidge,
The Crystal Text

    what provokes—cleavage?
      that which is—blank?
     a new kind of—line?
         three lines—in one?

           how to be—simultaneous?
          three-way—at the same time?
       rearranging—past present future?
           writing it—into a new tense?

              picasso—does it
           juan gris—does it
        kandinsky—does it
             braque—does it

           but what—do they do?
        do they do—cubism?
or does cubism—do them?
        provoking—such cleavage?
