(Thrift-town Poetics) (interchangeable T-shirt poem)

Because there are hidden codes, languages, and poetry in the everyday matrix of materials & signs that reveal occult meanings of the places & sites in which such texts suddenly appear and begin to ‘speak’…

How do seemingly anonymous and leftover goods carry messages into new contexts as they move through the class and cultural logics of thrift-store shopping? What new reading strategies, or new modes of materialist literary criticism, are required to begin to interpret these uncanny texts from the compost heap of U.S. consumer culture?
