My thanks to Bulatlat.com for publishing this poem. Many thanks for all my friends who participated in the instant sms workshop over the weekend. I decided to pour all the comments into a coming piece, a homage to dialogue. Although I don't preclude the solitariness of the writing act, I think the practice of writing a poem must be heavily informed with dialogue.

In effect, such a practice is a performative argument against the current curtailing of the freedom of expression.

Like everything else in the here and now, this next poem is waiting to happen. Like all else, it is happening.
