Algebra Builds Homes

I have blogged before about Sachiko Murakami’s online poetry project and now I have the pleasure of quoting from the book Rebuild.

Let the home stand for us
Let the beauty of our form be complex. Let our complexity be known.

This is from “Let The Home”. I like how a simple statement with a hint of algebraic form gives rise to the the sonorous repetition of “let” and “complex”. Such simple means to achieve an intricate structure. And very reflective of the way in which metaphor works.

And so for day 905
