First letter style
I used to have a subscription to Poetry Magazine, a publication of the Poetry Foundation.Sadly, I no longer recieve issues of this magazine, but there is substantial shelf space dedicated to the copies I did recieve over the last couple of years. One of the issues was devoted to what is termed visual poetry. Do ya'll know about this amazing art form? If not, here's a sampling!
|Untitled, by Alberto Vitacchio|
|Ruth Bavetta, found in the Summer 2008 edition of "Rattle."|
|"Untitled," by Derek Beaulieu|
|Visual Poem by Michael Basinki|
|Untitled, by Rebecca Eddy|
|"Fallen" by Jorg Piringer|
|"Information Leak" by Richard Evans|
I freakin' love this stuff! I love how it incorporates language and the symbols of language into visual art. I love how this poetry reflects our postmodern culture. I want grab scissors and glue, and snip out a poetic collage or write with the paints and brushes I have stashed away somewhere. What do YOU think?
