toward frisson, 2023

'toward frisson' is a display case for a series of two word poems I've collected over the years.

Two word sequences are possibly the minimum poetic unit able to cause a sensation of frisson, a physical reaction to the way words can make you feel. Beyond just combining their denotative meaning, when two words are placed together, they modify each other, they wear each other like a skin, they repel and attract each other, the phonaesthetics of each word like electromagnetic fields on a collision course.
