Curated by KC Wei (Video Out)

What’s more political than identifying oneself as a poet? To wax language down from utility, to play with words and shift cognition; to rest on sound, form, and rhythm? This month’s Sticky Impulse features a selection of readings, conversations, abstractions, and physical ephemera from the Lenore Herb Archive and other videos from the Crista Dahl Media Library and Archives.
