Questions and Answers

What poetic techniques did you try to use in this poem? How much attention do you pay to form and metre?

The technique of installation, how we see things in the city. The random irrelevant, closed into boxes, the spherology of advertisement and billboard total theatre, in the public spaces we live in. Metre is a street rhythm. The form is how you box it.
