 I call these verses poems because of their shape and pitch, which is short and sharp, and because much of their meaning comes from claiming them as such. Their intention is to reveal the relations of power contained within the instances of the already unread: in their modes of address, in the positions they compel us to adopt as readers, in the normative readings they encourage us to repeat. By the simple act of rearranging their contents into verse, they draw attention to what is at stake in the seeming neutrality of their discourse by reciting, laboriously and insistently, what is constantly read, and therefore already read, but because of that always unread.
