"A modular poem is one in which the principle structural factor is the repetition, usually in different contexts, of one or more elements of the text. Each element becomes a module which may be expanded, compressed or otherwise altered. Or not. The idea is not a new one. But it is one which I have found natural in my own work, and have therefore stressed. Chance or logical structure, both can be applied equally to modules. Perhaps chance and predetermined logic are vectors pulling in the same direction?..."
