"Some constellation of ideas about the ancient and contemporary, the dead and reborn, the translated and the silenced, the historical and the disappeared, gradually took shape. Eventually, Etruria—my Etruria, anyway—came to seem like the right place for Jack Spicer to lay down with Sharon Mesmer, or Marianne Moore to fleer in an antiquated hat."

The “Twittering Machine” piece was invested in that thinking process. I think there’s a subversive attitude in the piece, but the idea is to put the resulting artifact in front of the point of view or the “politics”. Community is somehow wrapped up in into this. I’ve said this before, but I operate outside of the poetry community in general. I sometimes long to be part of the community in general, and at the same time when I’m near to or part of the community, I long to be a part from it.
There’s a lot to like about the poem, but one of the things I was especially drawn to was something I was just talking about with my poetry workshop the other day: the poem juggles a lot of balls. There’s a lot going on in it. You’ve got the epigraph about democracy, and then you’ve got information about Klee that is sort of woven in with historical facts, not to mention the play with twitter . . .
