I like to think of the nameless cat in Schrödinger’s famous thought experiment as an “exquisite corpse” because of its superposition of being both alive and dead. The cat does not survive the journey through two doors at once due to the force of gravity, however, words are weightless, not subjected to gravity… if the cat had a name, then it would definitely live on. UNPROTECTED HEX is the onslaught of one, long poem that will never end, a lost-in-thought experiment which hypothesizes that words can act like waves and coincide as interference patterns of language. UNPROTECTED HEX is an incantation that undresses the modern analogy, exposing a lack of eco-subconscious in societal life forms. At times confounding and enigmatic, these poems seek to reconfigure common sense.
