Bern Porter -- Found Poems

Porter in his gallery

Sibyl, Sibila's English language portal, has just published Joel Lipman's illuminating introduction to Bern Porter's Found Poems, which is just out from Nightboat. 

Read the full introduction here.

In conjunction with the publication of the book and Sibyl's publication of the introduction, Lipman has made available a set of Porter images, which I include here. Photos by Lipman  and Tom Barden, taken  1998-99.

a short 80th-birthday homage to Jerome Rothenberg

Maybe a secret of poetry is that its most disturbing power is something we never quite see or hear or make sense of, but which is invisibly transmitted from the bones of the poet to bones of the receiver.
