    Ooh, interesting mash-up of languages, rhythms and ideas – were you reading a French magazine at the time, by any chance? I like the dada sound vibrating throughout the poem.

    ha. probably the most pure dada poem of the night…there are a few solid lines….that keep a vein of coherence running through it in my opinion which gives the reader just a little push to actually try and read meaning into it….ha. it was a fun read…that is for sure….smiles.

    nice.. i see you had a french newspaper and some english snippets…works well…and you had me at Le chocolat noir… actually… i love dark chocolate….hmmmm

    One must be suspect of anyone who does not adore dark chocolate or Dada poetics. Your brilliant pastiche of sounds in French & English, punctuated by the Da da da percussionist accompaniment really impressed me. Many of us are not bilingual, so we missed some of the subtlety of the piece; but what your poem does for me is make me doubly proud to be a small part of the international throng of creativity that constitutes dVerse.

    Love the fact that you used the French newspaper as Dada was important in France and then included English and random sounds. Very Dada! Thanks for bringing this. And congrats on your win.

      thanks Bjorn, yes I was thrilled to use an Algerian paper, do another one using a Swedish paper, it is great fun and so fulfilling an exercise, I am glad you liked the end, I really like your Latin sounds too
