This book started as a project on John Bloomberg-Rissman's blog. The starting point was the poem "The Secret Life of an Angel" by Eileen Tabios, itself a response to the poem "Girl Singing" by Filipino Poet Josť Garcia Villa. Bloomberg-Rissman used various transformational procedures to produce versions of Tabios' poem, or new poems based upon it. The project was then opened to contributors, and the outpouring of creative, experimental work that followed is on show in this book - visual and musical versions, translations, reworked vocabulary in the style of John Cage; all are represented in this rich body of work.
