Harry Godwin - Experiments in Deconstruction : Flushing
The poem is placed in a toilet & flushed.
Effect on Reading:
The poem has formed an envelope, providing the reader with different angles of the poem within the same reading-sphere. The poem is divided into several sections, a couple easily readable: "Atlantic,/-out cars/enough, the/would seal language!]..." Other sections force the reader to try and read through the back of the paper - quite difficult as the folds block the light. The poem's multi-faceted approach creates a dynamic, interpretive reading, with no linear path, leading to a different approach each time it is read.
