POEM ABOUT MUSIC
Poetry. A book-length poem with the rhythms of Don Cherry and John Chicai and the vision of Charles Olson, all held in tension against silence. "POEM ABOUT MUSIC is a book-length poem where the tension and repose is controlled by an exaggerated use of white space: a technique suggestive of the silences in music. It is a poem like the music it is about, in that it is open to various interpretations while at the same time its aesthetics can be appreciated without paraphrasing comment"--L.W.Kimmel.
