"Spiral Orb is an experiment in juxtaposition, interrelationships, and intertextuality. Sections (words, phrases, lines) of each poem published in Spiral Orb are embedded with hyperlinks to other poems in Spiral Orb. A composite poem including a fragment from each piece in Spiral Orb serves as the entry piece and table of contents."
that's the concept of this new journal. such a fascinating approach, i thought when i first read about it, and sent 2 poems, hoping one of them would become part of this poetic spiral web of words. one of the poems made it. curious, i waited how this experiment would shape out, and wondered which lines and words would turn into connection points.
Spiral Orb launched yesterday, it is up now: Spiral Orb One
the title of my poem is "headed", you reach it when you click on this landscape:
down towns___sub urbs___square fields___high ways
and here, a list of poets included in the spiral, copied & pasted from the announcement mail, it almost reads like a name spiral itself:
Bailey Bowden Buckheit Buntin Conrad Delea Doreski Gens
Jones Lang Peterson Rerick Staples Sugar Toso Wankan
enjoy the spiral of words ~
