poem courier

I saw this list of America’s Most Literate Cities last Friday. I have to read more about the study, but apparently I’m in the right place. I did finish the (short) novel I was reading this weekend. Echos of Chaos, by Robert E Vardeman. I’m still debating reading the two sequels. I did start the second one yesterday, but it’s pretty so-so. A bunch of us went swimming yesterday, and I was reading the last 10 pages in the back seat of a tiny sedan with 3 other people. Everyone made fun of me, but I had to finish it.

I’ve decided I want to publish a new book of poetry. I have most of the poems picked out, but I’m still debating the title. I came up with the title Poem Courier because I want to use Courier font to layout the thing, and I like the double meanings, but I’m not completely set on that title yet. I did, however, write a brief poem with the same title.

poem courier

text is not interactive
reading is linear
a word per thought
too fast for conscious-
ness to follow
a path through wordiness
not seeing the letters
for the words
not seeing meaning
for the letters

Other titles in consideration: Photocopies and Staples, Subliminal Beatbox, TextPanderer. Let me know what you think! I will probably do some more formal brainstorming in the near future.
