: 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
You say, the Poetry is about condensation? But what can be more condensed than 'nothings' put together: they are so condenced, they can almost compete with the Nothingness itself. One can insert other words inbetween, but the result will not be as pure and condenced as the Poem in its current state!
However, I agree with you that a goo rearangment of nothings, will not influence the meaning of the poem, while giving it a special charm. I tried to present the Poem in a graphical way, but this work is far from satisfactory. I wish I had more time to make a larger research on it.
I invite ladonians to experiment with presentation of Nothingness. I initiated this project as a common work of all ladonians, having in mind that together we have a chance of creating something from Nothing...
