How to Read Any Poem, Anywhere 5: Rhythm (MP3)

Not enough time to cover all the poems today, so I'll make up for it (sorry Christian Hawkey!) on Thursday. Rhythm is tricky for people.

The way you talk about the operation in which poems need to be worked up between the hitting and not hitting is deeply nuanced. I don't know how this squares with Harman's more blunt working of objects that exist somehow behind and apart from their disruption(which any contact involves). Aren't object-forms made from disruption? I think the retreating object is between every on-off contact-human or otherwise- some zero balance point that only exists through this operation- the interferance pattern. Only through that can it equate something inbetween. Contact and non-contact are deeply entwined. Spatially they are a unit.
