Notes on the composition

steve:

jukka sends me computer generated erasures in groups( he refers to as templates )

i add or subtract from them in the case of thse poems i added mostly
creating a kind of spontaneous poesie
this particular grouping informed broadly by food

for me part of the writing is based on what i call quasi-linear writing and chaotic structuralism

ball's in your court jukka

----

jukka:

'I send Steve computer-generated texts, 'templates', which are based to stochastic procedures and use my own poems as sources. They have been done with one goal in mind, to try maximize a 'desire' to fill the holes in texts, any holes
Steve may find from there (there are 'physical' holes ie. missing letters, and 'mental' holes ie. missing words in
'narrative'/linear structure).

----

steve:

sounds good to me jukka's statement has a couple of minor grammatical
errors

english being his second language tho most times you'd never know it

bad at writing long theory being
a short person but chaotic structuralism which has some basic
non-existent principals
is the basis i think of everything the universe has to offer
chaos within structure
structured chaos or structure within chaos
everything has a structure conversely everything is in total chaos
structure is comprised of chaos / chaos of structure
one does not ever exclude the other
this can be and has been and is continually applied to the arts/ poetry
painting dance
is inherent in all form form is formed /informed by chaos
chaos therefore (in)formed by form /structure alter the 4 last
letters of structure
you are left with true the infra structure of chaos is form / structure
& vice-versa

quasi-linear an invention of less than a week is simply the use of
fragmentation within complete thought i.e. linear thinking or poesie
which of course is learned behavior
since we weren't born as linear thinkers/creatures more like drunks
walking the breathline
so if you examine what i've added to jukka's erasures you'll notice
some long line linearities distorted to form quasi-linearities
an example of this distortion would be to be or not to not be not
let's say
or even dispelling with all the the's a's etc in one's work
creating an equality of words me = i not I god is god not God
oh that's a different subject
anyway quasi-linear is fragmenting of sentences / images within a pome
which might also still contain more traditional sentence structures/
adding a bit of chaos to structuralism
one can also create the entire pome out of quasi-linear thought structure
image scenarios

frags are also a new form not yet invented i think what jukka sends me
are more in the order of frags since he is eliminating from existent
texts key words here exist & exit

when john m. bennett & i or jim leftwich & i do these back & forth e-mail
poems

or vernon frazer or folks i've done more linear pomes with it's pretty
much always about adding (addition ) whereas when jukka & i do them
it's almost always about subtract/add/subtract the process is more
organic & everchanging ditto w/ a few long ones i've done with andrew
topel
