That is too cool, JW!!!! I dig the given visual poemness a play! I look forward to seeing more, and thanks for posting again--I have been missing your work up here!
I have to ask--is this a poem that you literally make from cutting up words, and then is the black and grey done by computer or by hand? Curious
I used a snapshot capture software to cut out around 30 snippets from about a dozen poems. Some of the snippets juxtaposed words from 2 or more different lines.Then I imported all the snippets to powerpoint and arranged as a montage on the page. I cleaned up some excess "half words" by sticking black patches over them.I saw that I lacked a few words for the final composition and had to go back to Rewords to look for them.Then I framed the whole lot with a grey background and made another snapshot of the whole montage. This I uploaded to flickr and them made a url link from Rewords. And voila...And now I'm going off to apply for a job on Blue Peter.
Thanks for sharing your very complex process! And, good luck on the job application!
