Oli Hazzards Blotter consists of five sequences, each constructed using a different process. In Graig Syfyrddin notes on hillwalking in the Welsh marches - the poets former home - alternate with found text taken from an online walking forum. Blotter is a shepherds calendar of sonnets composed of Russian spambot script - a mix of lifestyle advice, gaming tips, authoritarian propaganda, bucolic fragments and apocalyptic messages. Within Habit is a series of prose poems collaged from numerous sources. March and May comprises parallel columns of verse. Or As is a family of 81 seventeen-syllable poems, each one an erasure of the corresponding page in a different book the poet was writing alongside Blotter.
