The text of my 4 folk-inspired tales.
The words were born from a process of Dadaist magpie-ing, cutting out words from various magazines and pasting them to create poems, in an attempt to echo the tradition of folklore, in that the stories are an accumulation of many voices, not traceable to a single voice. From these initial first poems I wove in my own words to create my 4 stories. The rhythms of each of the 4 poems are intended to mirror its respective weather type when read aloud.
Listen below to me reading the poems or flick through the words below!
