Another Poem to Load

by Nick Montfort · , 10:34 am

From CC“CC” is a poem by Nick Montfort, written for the Web in April and May 2006.

  1. The poem is written for Carmen Conde’s centenary in 2007.
  2. The poem contains 100 words, each of which are (more or less obscure) words in both English and Spanish.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
