"In the gaming environment of New Word Order: Basra, the player is invited to read, explore, and destroy words taken from a Billy Collins' poem, sample lines of which read, 'walk inside the poem's room/ and feel the walls for a light switch. They begin beating it with a hose/ to find out what it really means.' If interpretation itself disfigures poetic language, then the player of New Word Order: Basra makes that violence literal by using an arsenal of weapons (including a crow bar) to disfigure and reconfigure the words of Collins' poem." -- from Electronic Literature Collection, Volume 2
