Kathy Slade

Love Poem


Kathy Slade’s Love Poem is made in homage to Michael Joseph Phillips’ Graph of an Affair, published in 1972. Slade’s attempts to recreate Phillips’ concrete poem were written on a Smith-Corona Skywriter manual typewriter with a faulty ribbon return and a tendency to jam. Each attempt here to complete the triangle of text has failed in a slightly different way.
