Retallack refers to her poetry as procedural, Newlipo (i.e., beyond or other than Oulipo). Best explained by quoting the poet's own Source Notes. For example, she describes her procedure for writing one of the more powerful poems in the collection, "AID/I/SAPPEARANCE" as follows: "The disappearance moves through the letters of the alphabet (and the source text) in this way: Beginning with letters AIDS, it spreads to adjoining letters BHJCERT, to LPV, to MOW, to NX, to Y.// Part of the text in the first stanza is from "The Atomic Theory and the Fundamental Principles underlying the Description of Nature" in The Philosophical Writings of Niels Bohr, Volume I, Atomic Theory and the Description of Nature . . . ." Another example, for "Not a Cage": "This poem is composed from beginnings and endings of books I was culling from my library in the Fall of 1990." Although the procedures may seem excruciatingly contrived, the poems are most often fresh and lively. Other favorites: "Existence Is An Attribute," "Steinzas in Meditation," and "Witt & Stein." I am deeply indebted to Retallack for introducing me to her neologism "palimpsestina," which I have shamelessly borrowed for the title of one of my own poems. Also, for "steinza," which I almost don't dare steal. Lots of serious fun to be had here.… (mere)
