The Suture poems are digital cut-ups, using
found words torn from mainstream & trash novels; as a source, I limit the
the word-base found in the original text, and take great effort to birth something directionally new and distinct
from out of the non-poetic landscape of a linear fiction.
A kind of false visual evidence of the patchwork process is purposefully revealed / digitally enhanced / exaggerated,
not truly indicating the actual splice-points, but in fact creating a fiction out of the physical assembly process.
