She Take We Apart

Molly Gaudry posted a mind-blowing assemblage of lines drawn from blogs by the likes of Bailey, Madore, Bassett, Klassnik, Jemc, Regina, Pink, Best, Wells, Butler, Lin, Robinson, etc. Molly certainly has an eye for stand-alone lines, and with the way the lines juxtapose and accumulate, she has written a really good poem. On top of that, each line is linked to its source, which is fascinating to see how such different writers' lines is such dramatically different original contexts could be de/reterritorialized in an entirely new piece of writing that Barry Hannah indirectly inadvertently titled (you'll see). And be sure to check out John Madera's "bleary-eyed blurry remix" in the comments. Good stuff.

Great post title! Thanks for reposting. It was fun. I had fun. And folks can thank you for the poem, as it would never have been attempted if not for the Barry Hannah line that you provided in the first place.

Thanks, Molly, I had some help with that. I'm glad I was able to provide some inspiration via Barry Hannah for what you did with the poem. I'm still obsessing over it.
