"These transcriptions of dictionary pages began about five years ago. Briefly, I record what is on a specific page either in paragraph form or list / chant form depending on the 'call words' at the top of the page (instructions). Politically, I do this because I love anarchy. Personally, I see myself as an 'Irish' poet (historically) in that I combine the independent scholar tradition with the pun-in-every pub diversion. Plus, I'm not bored." [Tina Darragh, liner notes for Xa cassette, 1979]
