Alexandre Ferrere : part five

How does a poem begin?

I would be tempted to say that, in my practice, it begins by the end, as it is once a situation or an idea has ended that I try to recreate the invisible path towards a particular sensation. But it sometimes begins like a bull in a china shop—in a logic of chaos, not being able to grasp the idea. In that situation, I tend to focus on forms and colors so as to create a visual narrative, before reinforcing or destroying contents, aiming for an immediate effect on the reader.
