"I tried to widen the notion of siege from its usual sense of military siege to an existential condition [ma 'na wujudi], in incorporating the siege of the martyr, the siege of language. National themes, topics, questions have besieged the poet. This work was an attempt to end the siege from the collective. It was announcing a complaint and a daring acknowledgement." - Mahmoud Darwish

there's something of mongering to these combinations
the, er, combinatorics attraction 
is, s's of the tile rec

tangles, the stall
that says "in
the inn with Ann who I'm
into ["to"
crossed but visible]"

that's some distance
sacrifice in the work
in the man's interest
to shrink, fold
qualification for ruin and speed

it's about care that you be as
powerful as you were to leave
up in order, felt out pulling past
