Visual poem

February 7, 2018

The idea for this layered poem comes from anatomy books that have the muscles and bones and circulatory systems in overlays. So this is, as the painter Hallie Cohen suggests, a verbal neural system.

It's something I have thought about doing for decades but never knew what technology would work. Turns out that mylar and dualar are easy-to-write-on, easy-to-erase transparent sheets. Perfect for my purpose.

I have two 2-layer poems I like, & next I'll try a 3-layer poem.
