: Ladonians, ave!
: If you still remember, I've got an endless project running: The National Poem of Nothingness. Those who forgot or simply didn't know, can refresh their memory first.
: Well, I have got a new accquisition - a Dutch word for 'nothing': Neits, which have been duly implemented into the Poem.
: If you have any words for 'nothing' which are not yet in the poem, please send the to me...
I have sometimes cheated with poetry. You insist calling the Nay´s a construction of a poem. To me poetry is all about condensation, about empowered words, hightening the sence of being a living soul and body in the flow of time. My question is then, how can a poem or condensation be made out of this pile of Nay´s. I would suggest some sort of metaphysical approach to transform the words into a good poem. Maybe one could see them as one/many anagrams and try to order the letters in different ways, maybe with a help of Chance. At this moment it is not much of a poem, more like a silent creek I would say, which of course has its own value, metaphorically.
Good Luck with the work
