// SOIL ALPHABETS //
This is a reflection on language. All human activities- thoughts, imagination and language itself – form what we call Culture. Everything else is the Nature. I believe in a language rooted in the blood and sweat of human body, culture and that of the Earth. This object poem seeks to gather traces of the alphabets of another language. A language that springs from both Nature and Culture. A language learned from within ourselves.
