A note on the composite lost sonnets: Some time after making my original series of 155 lost sonnets, I had an idea that I could use the lost sonnets from that series to make a new series of ‘composite lost sonnets’. Seven series of composite lost sonnets ensued. Each composite lost sonnet was made from a pair of lost sonnets from the series preceding it. The pairs were selected via a ‘fold-in’ method, such that, for example, the first composite lost sonnet was made from lost sonnet 1 and lost sonnet 155, the second from lost sonnet 2 and lost sonnet 154, the third from lost sonnet 3 and lost sonnet 153, and so on until arriving at the final composite lost sonnet in the first series, made from two copies of lost sonnet 78. Subsequent series were made via the same method. Thus, the first composite lost sonnet in the second series was made from composite lost sonnet 1_155 and composite lost sonnet 78_78.
A note on the visually discernible textual elements: 'immaculate', 'there', 'out' and 'the'. These words come from a line of a long poem-sequence by Tom Jenks. The line is: 'out there immaculate the sarcasm of rooks'. The poem-sequence is 'Spruce' (BLART books, 2015). Lost sonnets 110 and 119 were made for and from this line, and words from the line re-appear in composite lost sonnets.
