The House is Moving

Research output: Textual Creative WorksPoem/s


The poem is about a house that moves, which is what happens when we shift residence. It also explores the way literature, in this case letters, can act, as Benedictus de Spinoza notes, to transfer us to the past with the same extraordinary intensity, regardless of whether that past be three, twenty or fifty years prior. It all appears on the same one flat screen of the imagination. The poem likewise refers to Roman Jakobson and Krystina Pomorska's notion of literature as that which serves as a "substitute for experience" accress time and space. One can almost live there, in that same singular flat screen Spinoza delimits. But it is also impossible to do so the poem concludes.
