Talking about Life at Ace Hardware

I prepared this video for a one minute story project curated by Scott Rettberg who had been a student in my Visible Rhetoric class during his MA work at Illinois State.1 When I started creating this site, I discovered that I liked the video version of the poem way better than any of the print versions in my archives. Editing a poem into a one minute story had made me rethink what I was doing in a very productive way. As a result I had to transcribe the poem from the video to include it in this site.

  1. Scott mentions the class in an essay based on his Computers and Writing 2002 keynote address. See the section,”My Seduction into Electronic Literature.”
