Jon. Nice guess. Its actually a teabag wrapper from the the Frontier which I generally write my poetry on the back of as well as making notes and shopping lists so as not to waste the paper/wrapper. Yes you could say it (the wrapper) is an intimate part of the frac/k-tal ("FracPo") theme too in is as much as it "wraps" (raps) the rhythm in a solid structure before letting it out/free rather as the teabag when released into the hot water then defuses/infuses the liquid in tanic acid and residue from the (hopefully) sachette pure more or less leaf-juices: musically too!
Another take would be the deconstruction of the sounds which make up the letters similar perhaps to a Schoenberg string quartet in a resistance say to the strict 4-part 19th century choral harmonies hitherto used. Here the similarity with "jazz" is very strong. Think of Stravinsky or Olivier Messiaen or any of the pre-19th century 'experimentalists' including architects such as Antoni Gaudí and Frank Lloyd-Wright (In this case his oft-quoted "frozen music."). Thanks for the email. David
I met with him a couple of weeks later for a clarification. "It's the other side of the sandwich," he said and fiddled with his teabag. "It can be sung."
