(sister poem of time is present in...)
I wrote this poem after being inspired by Karan Barad's performing / reading of her hyphens and dashes . I wrote it to hint at possibilities in layering meaning
in language with marks.
It is interesting to think that when reflecting on a subject matter in the moment, with the vehicle carrying it such as language, the double layered-ness created through these marks push the language to bend in form and embody the argument in a more comprehensive way.
Below is screenshots of Barad's hands explaining / embodying the use of hyphens and dashes in the paper she is reading, my inspired notes:) and some examples of dashes and hyphens in use.
