“CC” is a poem by Nick Montfort, written for the Web in April and May 2006.
- The poem is written for Carmen Conde’s centenary in 2007.
- The poem contains 100 words, each of which are (more or less obscure) words in both English and Spanish.
- Moving the pointer over a word highlights that word and one other, so that the pair can be read as a phrase, aloud or in the mind.
- Conde’s book Jaguar puro inmarchito (Pure Unwithered Jaguar), and the fact that the word “jaguar” is a word in both English and Spanish, suggested that, in the interests of purity, the letters in that word should not occur anywhere in the poem.
