lipstickGil J. WolmanLa Memoire (3’17”). “It’s the breath that creates the poem: rhythm and scream, the scream until now inexpressed in poetry; scream of joy, of love, of anguish, of horror, of hate, but scream” (Dufrêne). “Less texts than sonic performances the ultralettristic poems comprise a high-energy expulsion of inarticulate sounds, cries, and grunts. In linguistic parlance ulltralettristic performance emancipates non- and subphonomatic material from the necessity of primary articulation” (McCaffery). More Wolman on Ubuweb.
