portfolio of 10 poems composed by David E. Thompson AKA Davi Det Hompson while in the Masters Program at Indiana University 

Noted for his association to the Fluxus movement, Hompson often used text in a visual form in posters, pamphlets, artists’ books, mail art and other works. His large-sized blocky format conversational exchanges with the descriptions of the scene standing in for the images themselves appeared as sharp bits of language that seem partial or overheard. Hompson’s own name was equally an engagement with the meaning and structures attached to language in that it was a transposition of the letters of his birth name, David E. Thompson.
