Kathy Slade: Love Poem

Kathy Slade’s Love Poem is made in homage to Michael Joseph Phillips’ “Graph of an Affair”, published in Third Assembling, a Collection of Otherwise Unpublishable Manuscripts, compiled by Richard Kostelanetz, Henry Korn, and Mike Metz in 1972. Slade’s attempts to recreate Phillips’ concrete poem were written on a Smith-Corona Skywriter manual typewriter with a faulty ribbon return and a tendency to jam. Each attempt here to complete the triangle of text has failed in a slightly different way.
