    I really like this, Barbara. It also reminds me a bit of some of Nick Montfort’s work. Because of the reuse of the same letters, there’s a lyrical quality, a sound that repeats, increases and decreases, that grabs the attention, especially when recited aloud. Meaning – in the straightforward sense – isn’t the priority, but there’s still creation here, if I’m making any sense.
