Mori Ikuo:

Box 4190

Twelve visual poems, some in Japanese (but with translations provided), some in English. My favorite, "Hole Ranking," consists of four squares in which the dot of the "i" in the word, "pin," expands from normal-sized to so large it forces the rest of "pin" out of its square. Ikuo's other poems are similarly charming explorations of perspective and point of view.--Bob Grumman
