Fracturedpolitics.com - Critical theory about current events: Ecocritical Haiku
Somewhat inspired by a discussion taking place on www.inthemedievalmiddle.com, the following haiku is meant blur the line between art and theory—or theory and practice, if you prefer—by engaging its own eventhood and eventualization. You know, in a naturalistic sort of way.
chirps against receding waves
I'm not a haiku author. Or an ornithologist, for that matter. All I know about birdcalls is that they wake me in the morning by perturbing my cat. So, forgive the clumsiness of the effort. Let me know if you think there's potential in this gesture, though, as I continue aggregating my verse into a chapbook. Also, feel free to re-raise the issues voiced on the aforementioned medieval studies blog; the intertextual ideas being debated are particularly relevant to repoliticizing cultural encounters, and there's nothing like poaching another site's thread to foster online harmony.
