CLWN WR #35, Fall 1992

PO Box 2165 Church St. Station
New York NY, 10008

6 pp., SASE

Entirely devoted to vislature (work that mixes the visual and the verbal). Ten fine pieces by well-known figures in the field whose work is not often available, such as Scott Helmes and Dick Higgins. My two favorites: a zebra-poem by Higgins with a description of the zebra's stripes as "white/ (on black)// and/ (now)" that for some reason made me see snow; and cut-up texts about winter that Richard Mathews has reshaped as petals to exquisitely sum up the quiet, clean edges of winter... in flower-speech.--Bob Grumman
