[-empyre-] to all members: what is e-poetry to you?

In relation to John's reply, perhaps it's the e- as if e-poetry were a 
priori electronic/electric (not to forget semaphore). So a delimitation is 
already in place. e- tends towards new media, however defined, and it 
might be well to consider e-poetry as writing-in-media, left open. I tend 
to think I work in poetics, not poetry, and something like "poetics of the 
other," rather than tied to, say, Aritotelian poetics or poetics of the 
epic, whatever. So that simultaneously a weight and freedom of language is 
implied, and language itself takes wings -
