from Book of Kings
from BOOK OF KINGS presents roughly the first half of a book-length serial poem exploring open field poetics. It's 'line,' as the saying goes, is driven by a breath spaced measure, derived à la readings in the work of poets such as Larry Eigner, Joanne Kyger, and Paul Blackburn. With debt of course acknowledged to William Carlos Williams and Charles Olson as well as Stéphane Mallarmé.
