What follows is my rhizopoiesis, a conjoining of Trueit’s Play which is more than play and my ideas, nomadically-rhizomatically generating a further disruption of ideas about play as presented in the early childhood literature. My reading-writing-thinking can be perceived, both abstractly and with/in the actual, as a “vertical dimension of intensities” (Foucault). To disrupt a conventional interpretation of Trueit’s article, I transpose selections of her rather lyrical text into a poietic format, as a way of opening (her) ideas to a rhizomatic understanding of children’s play. Centering the text disturbs any regression into a linearly focussed reading. By virtue of what I have included and what I have left out, the re-presentation inevitably reflects my subjective partiality of my understandings of her text, and associated limitations—“Are we not subject to our own limited “understandings” as we impose our interpretations on others?”
