Thoughts Go

Originally published in 2001 on the author's website, "Thoughts Go" was republished the ELO's Electronic Literature Collection 3 in 2016. It is described as "an early work of Adobe Flash electronic poetry that provocatively invites us to rethink rhyme and rhythm through its juxtaposition of two poems: one audio, one written. The work asks the reader to start it, and to keep it going by pressing and holding down on a button. The audio poem asks us to contemplate 'Where do thoughts go?' while the written poem creates a concrete image of a moment in a parking lot. The words pulse in time with the audio, making it difficult to read the text independently of its relationship to the voice that it echoes and yet creates dissonance throughout the short piece."--From Electronic Literature Collection 3
