poetry, too, consists of textual land surfaces and the surrounding deep geographies of silence, space, and meaning– the aztecs and mayans used bark from banyan trees to make paper for their codices– with stones they drummed strips of bark– the paper was called amatl in nahuatl and copo in mayan– no page is ever truly blank–— Craig Santos Perez, from ‘:oceania compositions:’. From Unincorporated Territory: [saina].
