To begin

Notwithstanding its name, this blog confirms Kafka’s aphorism about form: ‘A cage went in search of a bird.’

It is the combination of the remote and the immediate (usually a measure of proximity) that interests this editor about the cyber-world; it parallels metaphor. And metaphor is generative – it goes places. So will Truck: to America, Australia, Canada, China, Croatia, Germany, Great Britain, Greece, Holland, Italy, Japan, Madagascar, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Nicaragua, Norway, Samoa and Ukraine.

In August the 1896 Daimler will apply its four horsepower to delivering ‘Baker’s Dozen’, a repeat series of thirteen poems carefully packed by their author. And artworks will accompany the word on the journey to your place.
