Where is centre?
Inside the structure
Or outside
Or does not exist at all.

What is meaning?
The creation of a writer
The interpretation of a reader
Or an incoherent coda taken for granted.

Who is writer?
A reader of Reader's mind
A creator of complex style
Or pioneer of a new ideology.

Who is reader?
A destructive force against a work
An appreciative soul for every word
Or creating his space by defying the author.

What is Deconstruction?
Bringing reader to the centre
Shifting writer to the periphery
Or merely projecting man's fatal erudition.

    Oh! You have taken me off with this Deconstruction theory….here paradoxical structure of your scripture insists me to shift back and forth between your perspectives so….I am in an irresolvable alternation of APORIA…..your careful teasing of signification within the text will take DERRIDA off his shoes….
    Your ‘mystic writing pad’ is a signifying act to make you different and more intellectual…

    The CENTER is chucked out totally…no point where everything comes….we all have different centers..God, Human self, mind, or even unconsciousness depending upon our philosophical system….
    MEANING: the center guarantees a meaning being as PRESENCE…erase the signified, keep moving from one signifier to another….a free play…an incoherent code…
    WRITER or AUTHOR….ASK Roland Barthes…...he has already killed the author…
    READER his sets of historically, psychologically and culturally conditioned assumptions and conventions…are the interpretive strategy of a reader…
    DECONSTRUCTION: so after subverting, dismantling, and destroying your poem…excluding all coherence, unity, logic and truth I came to the conclusion….THAT YOU ARE A FINE POET, NO DOUBT ABOUT IT….
    You made deconstruction simple for me…….all aporias now solved…very well written….. (Report) Reply

Under thy long locks thou may'st have the scall
But after my making thou write more true!
