local colour




derek beaulieu says:

local colour  engages with the graphic design of the information that we process, applying the tenets of concrete poetry to conceptual writing. Like logos and PR statements for the corporate sponsors of Jorge Luis Borge’s library, my poems use the particles of language to represent and promote goods and corporations just out of reach. These imaginary businesses, and the advertising campaigns that support them, promote a poetic dreamscape of alphabetic ostranenie.
