How does one closely read a work that changes before your eyes and can produce more variants than can be read in a lifetime?

My essay, “A Shifting Electronic Text: Close Reading White-Faced Bromeliads on 20 Hectares,” offers some suggestions to appreciate, play along with, or hack this e-poem by Loss Pequeño Glazier.

Here’s a link to Emerging Language Practices 2 (2012), from which you can download a free PDF copy of the essay, as well as discover other great work by influential scholars in the field.
