Poet Publishes 10,000-Page Poem

Last year, poet David Morice wrote one 100-page poem every day for 100 days–producing a 10,000-page poem. As you can see by the image embedded above, the entire work has been printed and bound into a massive volume by the University of Iowa Libraries.

You can read the entire manuscript at this link, downloading individual chapters–100-page segments. The library has a great post about how they bound the 10,000-page poem.

Here are a few lines from the opening of the epic poem: “Today the sky above Iowa City / is cloudy with tiny droplets / gently blowing in the wind / and tapping my laptop with dots. / In front of the University/ Main Library, Gordon sits / on a marble wall, camera / posed to video the beginning / of this poetry marathon.”
