THREE BLIND POEMS

Ron Padgett and Yu Jian

A unique collaboration unites East and West. From the Preface by Ron Padgett: “In the summer of 2010, the Chinese poet Yu Jian and I took a cable car to near the top of Mount Mansfield (altitude 4,393 feet) in Vermont and wrote three poems together. Using a method similar to that of the exquisite corpse of the Surrealists, we wrote alternating parts, but in our case we did not have to conceal our words, since in effect they were automatically concealed: Yu Jian cannot read English and I cannot read Chinese.”
