[ from kaustos ‘burnt’ (from kaiein ‘to burn’) ] is a work based on chance operations (a variation/combination of Bernstein’s Acrostic Chance method and John Cage’s Mesostics) that uses Earth’s Holocaust, by Nathaniel Hawthorne, as seed text, and Leviathan, by Hobbes; Aristotle’s Poetics; Humane Understanding, by Locke; Shelly’s Frankenstein; and Elements of Chemistry, by Antoine Lavoisier, as source texts. Language from the source texts is collected via procedure, then reworked to shape the final poems.
