“underscore” by k. s. ernst & sheila e. murphy

UNDERSCORE – by K. S. Ernst & Sheila E. Murphy

This is a long-form collaborative visual poem which includes a dialogue
between at least 2 voices and one or more crows, on themes of
consciousness, time, place, and friendship. As the authors say in their
introduction: “The combination psyche of KSEM [Ernst & Murphy] arrows our
way in varying geometric / geo-mantric modes that we prepare to depict upon
a score what we decidedly hear, alongside emblematic crows that sound
themselves and show themselves across the work. They are our center as they
anchor narrative and feeling, spanning multisensory tree-staged colorific
definitions.”
