We were away for the summer and, just reading all of the fan mail, I know you missed us. We moved about the globe and vacationed, (and you did it, too!) but we're back in the cyberslack and it's all true. You wrote it. i-Outlaw 2.7, as you can easily see from the title, features Sheila E. Murphy and her unique blend of poetry that will render you suitable for more, so check the score. We're not leaving without you.

If you're not in the loop, ripping from her Wikipedia entry, Sheila E. Murphy, born in Mishawaka, Indiana, is an American text and visual poet who has been writing and publishing actively since 1978.
Just there, I'll turn to the issue of disjunction, the ultimate expression of freedom in my writing, that is the beginning of discovery. It is almost as though something underneath all the activity pursued actively challenges me to put two things together and to find out how they match. Because, of course, they do. They fit together or at least work together in some way. I may not know how until they are there together. And when they are, and I learn how and maybe even why they fit or match or mutually enhance, then I've begun to learn something that ensures that I'll move forward in some way I do not know until I have.
