You already know that I enjoy making marks. Earlier this year after two of my texts were published in the then fairly new online ILK, I applied my iPen to photos that I had made last winter in Berlin’s Central Park, Tiergarten. Each photo uses a line from the work of a fellow poet of issue two. I find the mash-up created thus strangely attractive, and I hope I’m not deluded as the meta–maker, like a butterfly collector who believes himself to make beautiful things only because he hunts, kills and displays nature’s art. I also hope that the co-creators, the original poets, have no hurt feelings because of my artistic appropriation. The whole collection is here (on Picasa), or you can view it also at B(o)lloggs. Great poetry, by the way.
