Without their sentences these words are orphans. Cole is my youngest grandson’s middle name.




Notes to Poem:
The source for the haybun text is http://www.cse.msu.edu/~cse231/PracticeOfComputingUsingPython/06_Dictionaries/SpellCheck/ref.txt Download Dept of Computer Science and Engineering (Michigan State University, Spell-Check dictionary).

How I chose the source: I took all the words Eileen’s son was supposed to learn (or whatever he was supposed to do with them) and put them through a Google search to see what might be made of them and all that came up were word lists ... and then it came to me that all those isolated words are orphans in their way, that we (words and people) all derive our meaning and significance from our ecosystems/contexts etc etc.





John Bloomberg-Rissman is just past the halfway point of In the House of the Hangman, the third section of his maybe life project called Zeitgeist Spam (picture Hannah Hoch pasting stuff to the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel). The first two volumes have been published: No Sounds of My Own Making (Leafe Press), and Flux, Clot & Froth (Meritage Press). In addition to his Zeitgeist Spam project, he is in the midst of two collaborations (one with Richard Lopez, one with Anne Gorrick) has edited or co-edited two anthologies, 1000 Views of 'Girl Singing' and The Chained Hay(na)ku Project, and is at work on a third, which he is editing with Jerome Rothenberg. He is learning to play the viola and he blogs at www.johnbr.com (Zeitgeist Spam).
