    1. Thanks. I wish I had some fancier software and/or more patience to do more interesting things with text, but fortunately for me I am predisposed toward minimalism anyway. :)

    1. That’s right. I include the text just for those on dial-up and the visually impaired who use screen readers, so they’ll still get something out of the post. While I may not go quite as far as Tom Konyves in insisting that “what differentiates videopoems from poetry-films today is the use of non-poetic texts to effect the experience of a poem … The poetry is the RESULT of the juxtaposed, blended use of text with imagery and sound,” I do feel that videopoetry should tend in that direction whenever possible, and not simply be an illustration of a text.
