The Quiet Poet Laureate
Sticking with these first two examples, the difference in tense — past to present — serves to reinforce the distance between the newspaper cutting and presumed activist pamphlet.

Cold recombination of linguistic fragments, and hot emotionality of rhythm [emphasis my own].
The emotional rhythm appears intimate precisely because of the ambiguity and inherent distance of the source materials. But while Surrealism, Dada, Zaum all sought psychological liberation, Balestrini, inspired by the politics of autonomia, calls for a renegotiation of the binary between individual and collective, in which society itself is reconstituted by poetic logic.
