Erik Anderson, The Poetics of Trespass

 

Like writing, walking may also amount to a mixture of imprimatur and erasure. But does my walking nearly replace one grid with another? There’s something tyrannical, Sisyphean, in passing over the same ground over and over again, in being compelled (or compelling oneself) to do so. And yet I am likely the only one who will ever walk these exact paths – they would lead one so ludicrously out of one’s way. But then, that’s their purpose.

Erik Anderson’s critical and creative work has appeared in American 
Letters & Commentary, Witness, The Laurel Review, The Poetry Project
 Newsletter, Versal, and Rain Taxi, among other publications. A former 
contributing editor at the Denver Quarterly, he co-edits the mail-art 
magazine Thuggery & Grace. He lives outside of Denver.
