The new ebook from Argotist Ebooks is “The O and The Owl” by Leanne Bridgewater
An eco-sound-poem in 50 parts
“The O and The Owl” is about a play on letter ‘o’ and the ‘owl’ as a word, phonically, but also metaphorically: environment; animal instinct; nature. We have become so dependent on having to know what everything means, we ask it too much. The O and The Owl – what does it mean? It has no formal meaning but it asks you ‘what do you think / what do you see / do you see the play on word / do you see the oblong rhythm / do you see the hidden politics / do you feel tongue-twisted / do you see the micro-meanings instead of ‘what is the true meaning of this?’ – Language’s seatbelt has become unfastened, landing face-down in earth where the tongue licks and sniffs at it in a playful manner – and then the owl comes!
