Soft Surrealism

From now on when people ask me what kind of poetry I write, I'm going to say "Soft Surrealism." It sounds unnerving. Once at a reading for the Starcherone anthology "PP/FF"one of the other referred to me and Joyelle as "Beatniks." I thought that was great too. Maybe I'll be a "soft beatnik." I like Öyvind Fahlström's idea of the poet as a "kneader."

When I think "soft", I think "out of shape". I personally want to write "out of shape" poetry.

If you're going to be a soft surrealist, I want to be a soft pataphysician.
