Spring 1994

Box 399
Maplesville AL , 36750

32 pp., $3.00

Beautifully-produced little collection of poetry that ranges from a mainstream but fine sample of X. J. Kennedy's work to; well, one of my mathemaku (with an author's explanation!). One of my favorite selections was Mark Fleckenstein's "Ritual As Morning Light":

     Useless as we are, we are.

Morning again; light; God's laughter.

Coffee. Clothes making us up,

re-telling and forgetting the same story.

--Bob Grumman
