Ideas of Improvisation interrogates how the I & the I of the imaginary can appear perpendicular to the axis of the real. In addition to the expected body of words, Joel Dias-Porter improvises on the idea of the lyric by marooning text to create ghost poems that float above the page and add a new haiku-like dimension. Like the rook in brook, in Ideas of Improvisation we hear how Dias-Porter, a neurodiverse technician of the text, reformulates form to navigate the spectrum of possibility.

Joel Dias-Porter is the author of Ideas of Improvisation (Thread Makes Blanket Press, 2022). Joel Dias-Porter, a resident of Atlantic City, is self-unemployed but is rumored to gamble for a living.
