Ghost Dance 34

Irene Maria Dietschi


In Topicsparrow we are confronted head-on with ex
perimental poetry. It is different from traditional princi
ples commonly applied to poetry and therefore has to be
looked upon and analyzed with different standards. It seems
that M. L. Patterson denudes her poetry of conscious mental
control, allowing the subconscious the freedom to express
itself. Momentary impressions seem to be important, which
apparently do not have any connection with each other.
"Grasshopperseye/sun/this/is/me/ morning cloud surprise I
what here." It is reminiscent of the stream-of-consciousness
techniq ue where one impression gives birth to another,
in a kind of associative succession.
