I Only Get Called Huff Once

via Mackenzie Carignan's We Who Love to Be Astonished:

And yes, I am resistant to saying that an inkspot on a page is a "poem" because it is making a comment about text and visual representation at the same time, but at least I understand that this interpretation exists and that there is actually a theory behind it.

Perhaps it wasn't really a typo, but instead an attempt to redefine the act of naming, erasing the idea that art can have ownership.

But it wasn't. Sorry about the error.

Mackenzie,

You're taking this backwards (tho I get the humor of your response, too). My name is always misspelled. This was actually meant humorously: meaning, hey, my name was spelled right the other time!

Also, note that my title doesn't refer to the details of your posting at all, which I could take offense at--if so disposed. But I'm not, and I see no reason for it.

Take care, and thanks for the apology, but none is necessary--for that or your opinions!

No wories. You are on a valiant quest- I intend on teaching at least one of your poems in the "Introduction to Poetry" class I'm teaching this semester. I'm glad for your art. I'm actually flattered that you even managed to find my silly little blog.
