all codes lead to roam

ok bloggerissimo, this blogger doth wake up this morning at 5 a.m. to beseech of the webiverse, who says how is an ecopoem? she did then twitter and flutter with yeses aflight in recognitions in the dawn early bird getting the word: "The Language Habitat, A Manifesto" by James Engelhardt in Octopus. Here's an ampling sampling:

"Ecopoetry is connection.

It’s a way to engage the world by and through language. This poetry might be wary of language, but at its core believes that language is an evolved ability that comes from our bodies, that is close to the core of who we are in the world. Ecopoetry might borrow strategies and approaches from postmodernism and its off-shoots, depending on the poet and their interests, but the ecopoetic space is not a postmodern space. An ecopoem might play with slippages, but the play will lead to further connections....."
