This, That, the Other — Notes

Background Notes for This, That, the Other

Based on one of the hundreds of ovillejo fragments Sara left in her notebooks, with her encouraging us to freely continue to collaborate with her after the fact.

This one was her speaking to her own muse. In some moments, lost in embrace. In other moments, half mocking at the inevitable loss. Seeing her own poetry – her “this, that, and the other” – crossing serious intention with casual accident.

Maggie helped immensely on this. I wrote out the scraps from Sara’s notes as coherent as I could. But this ovillejo poetry form – a favorite of Sara’s – is way beyond my ability. She also did the formatting like how Sara would have done it.
