Poetry: from poesis, a making, a shaping. Except that poetry now, even in its broadest sense, is a actually kind of creative unmaking; a breaking-down of the calcified whole-habits of the reader's sensorium so as to bring newness into perception. Not a Heideggerean 'bringing forth', but a Deleuzian novelty; not poesis, but (neos, new) neotry.
