Kaie Kellough : part three

How do you know when a poem is finished?

Performance extends the creative timeline of a poem.  If its passages can be rearranged, if it can be recorded or dis-assembled and improvised upon in live sound performance, then the poem avoids becoming a fixed, precious object. It can remain open, can persist in a state of incompletion.
