As 2015 draws to a close, I am thrilled to share selections from a thick envelope received from Jim Leftwich in the autumn of 2015. I will not post all the work from the epical packet, but what I do document will be done in two parts. The majority of pieces were composed on 3 X 5 inch cards; some found material is included as well. This first selection includes work that I see as being more conventionally visual poetry. The second part will focus on pieces that I think will be of special interest to those who follow Trashpo. The boundaries are, of course, somewhat indistinct; so despite the two-part structure of the blog, the viewer is encouraged remember all these pieces came together and can function as serial vispo or a vispo lyric cycle.

Reverse sides will be documented:

The next piece is much smaller, departing from the card format:

Thank you, Jim Leftwich. And stay tuned for Part II in another few days!
