Visual poetry for us (group“δ”)
by Shin Tanabe
Visual poetry is not a visualisation of a stereotyped poetry, but a discovery of an unknown poetry in the thing, or a new machine for it. We don’t know well yet what the thing including us is. So we must open more our language to this mystery. Visual poetry is an instrument for it.
We can say too like this : Poesy is in an infinitely divided, transparent box. The box is a fountain of time-space. We can bath in it when we open our language to itself. Succeeded visual poetry is one of this opening. Succeeded verbal poetry, too.
Anyway, the question is to open transparently our language to the mystery of the thing including us.
She says in the darkness.
”I’m your transparent back.”
I say nothing. I feel her breath with my wineglass.
