texts that change the conscious parameters of literature, both for readers and writers. from a different angle than these, r.p. blackmur adds: 'poetry: [is] ...language so twisted and posed in a form that...it adds to the stock of available reality.' now that blogger has included the ability to reproduce fonts more accurately, alpha-numeric visual-poetry will be welcomed for consideration. formerly edited by peter ganick. send texts to matt margo at email@example.com for consideration...

poem || Peter-Sherburn Zimmer
autobiography as other
13529 nothing matters but the quality
13530 of the affection---
13531 in the end---that has carved the trace in the mind
13532 dove sta memoria
13765 "How is it far, if you think of it?"
13994 "How is it far, if you think of it?"
14412 How is it far if you think of it?
sheep for the Phoenician ship
out of Troia metallic memory
on the glistening imagination
I heard the gold you voice
melting in the furnace
memory melts all
misery melts all
alloyed of pasts together against no visitation
together no armoire
to hold no weapons against weeping
They made alphabets out of broken syllables
added to loss of memory at the eastern coast of the 'known' world
