A New Language – Hypothesis for Two Voices has been published on Printed Reality’s website.
“A New Language – Hypothesis for Two Voices” is written in a vaguely sonnet form, and consists of two parallel pieces that contrast and exchange concepts of science and poetry, particularly techniques of examination and analysis.
It is rare that I use traditional forms in finished work, preferring the discipline and control of free verse. Here, the sonnet’s fourteen lines have been split into three stanzas, and there is a volta of sorts as the exchange of ideas breaks into the paired poem at line seven. The parallel poems are closely linked in format, rhythm, sharing of common lines and fragments, even in epigraph.
