The Telephone Project

From the on-line journal At Length, a poetic conversation:

"The Telephone Project is a poetic sequence stretching across aesthetics and identities. Each poet writes an original poem in response to the preceding poem, with just one parameter: we ask that writers be respectful of the poets who precede them.
The sequence’s two threads begin with the same poem, which is a response to translations of two fragments from Sappho."

The first thread is here, the second here. To read writers’ explanations of their responses, as well as brief bios for the participants, click here. My effort "Fever Fragments" is the third poem on the first thread.
