Unlocking Sounds In Poetics
For all the facets and elements of poems we must consider, poems begin first at the level of sound, at the level in which so much of our communication happens. Even if a poem lives only on the page, for it to be read it must interact sonically with the reader. Have you ever thought of the way the word ‘cut’ differs from the word ‘slice’? Have you ever thought of how where you break a line changes what kind sound a line ends on?

Even moreso, you are invited to grab the key.
