Nico Vassilakis:

Last Generation Press
2965 13th St.
Boulder CO, 80304

22 pp., $3.50

This single long poem provides the context for one of the things Vassilakis does best: move around and through a topic and its multiple circumstantial associations to create an interpretation of the world as a kind of multi-layered swarming in which any particular theme or obsession (here, "man/woman" and language or story/history) seem increasingly small and of uncertain significance. A beautifully written work that grows with repeated readings. --John M. Bennett
