PLASTIC TOWER #16, September 1993

Box 702
Bowie MD, 20718

44 pp., $2.50

Normally I back off from publications with pink covers, but the cover illustration of a man digging a grave grabbed my curiosity. These are more traditional poems that carry an academic residue from writing workshops--while I saw an occasional poem that caught my fancy, I didn't find that straight-forward brutal reality attack that I usually thrive on. These are not poems from the street, they are from thinkers, and somehow instinctual responses carry a stronger reality (for me) than philosophy.--oberc
