my new book

Filed under: Uncategorized — larspalm @ 11:31 pm


this thing just happened is hot off the press from gradient books beautifully run by Jukka-Pekka Kervinen. & with a wonderful cover photo by my better half. it’s probably the weirdest book i’ve done (until now) & i’m absolutely delighted that it found such a good home. the first 20 something poems were composed in 2005-06 & the rest in 2012-13 using one of the poetry experiments outlined by Charles Bernstein inspired in turn by Bernadette Mayer. as i put it in a note at the back of the book

take the first & last word of each line of the selected texts, write them down exactly as they stand & then, without changing the order of the words or adding anything, cut away words until the poems appear. then they may be arranged into lines & stanzas
