d  i  p  p  i  n  g   b  u  t t e r f l i e s: You call that poetry?

Melissa Allen’s one-word poem or visual poetry or vispo has yet another dimension, that of typography with an embedded sense of offset printing, showing in the continuum of screen values beginning with 20%, perhaps, and advancing to 100%, either reflecting a loss hinted at and growing into an emphatic solid house of doom within the soul, or the reversed overwhelming shock of it finally fading into grey, and probably all these in five minutes of a life; showing in the choice of a non-serif font, all lower case, an echo of a loss of serifs falling off, those capitals of passion diminished, a scale of diminution and the monumental both, each showing in the absence of the other, such complete presence. Finally, within the pictorial quality there is a sense of haiga and haiku interdependence. ~ DF
