XIB--#3, 1992

PO Box 2621121
San Diego CA 92126

48 pp., $4.00

Stark blackandwhite images on the pages and in the poems, consistent hard and well written. Attitude and tough talk, but self-assured enough to let emotion and heart, even vulnerability, show--Pat McKinnon's "My Father Was a Carney Man" just one (fine) example among many. Longer poems get a chance, and a short story.--luigi
