So this is The Art of Compost and it’s a blog. Because what the world needs is another blog. It began with my prep for a course of the same name and soon took on a life of its own at plural intersections of my reading writing thinking teaching speaking feeling looking & wondering.
Into the bin go my thoughts on & misunderstandings of
- 20th & 21st C. poetry & poetics, esp. the Pound-William skein
- our political moment & the peril we are in who cherish democracy
- rhizomes, belowground networks of nourishment connection & transformation
- practices of teaching & writing, reading & sitting still
The impetus comes from Jed Rasula’s This Compost but he has neither reviewed nor approved this usage. Time for a picture of a nurse blog.
On the TED Radio Hour yesterday was a segment titled “Everything Is Connected.” Love you NPR but gotta differ. Everything connects. What I mean there is just, every object’s a subject.
