Your note paragraph is right on Along the lines of pre-word Yet I wonder what the fascination is there a return to infant/ pre language A response to too much information ??
Pre-language holds more potency than manifested language. As soon as we say the word, the word is fatally narrowed by our conceptions (denotations and connotations).
Ascent toward or before meaning, yes. And then the elimination or detonation of the word upon full realization, upon utterance, upon present tense. Tell me, how or what do you make of the remaining debris? After the explosion, the same ingredients persist. The post-word is of equal interest, yet instantaneously becomes pre-word material. Like a car's transmission chugging along, sparking, igniting, then returning again to achieve the same spark ignition, combusting moment.
I've been interested from the beginning of my fascination with concrete poetry with process, taking snapshots of what happens in the space/s between words, between meanings. What I'm interested in doing now is siezing--and freezing--an instant before the manifestation of meaning.
