poemns by Bob Grumman

Bob Grumman
the Runaway Spoon Press
Port Charlotte, FL

unpaginated. 4 1/4" X 5 1/2". This is a 1997 reprint of a book that was originally created over 30 years previously. Grumman was and is affected by ee cummings. It shows. For any fan of cummings and spatial poetics, this short collection is a MUST. It's akin to visual poetry without attempting to be cute or obtuse. It's a great little book, go forth and get yourself a copy!

Thanks for the plug--although it's a bit discouraging that 2 or 3 years later, the book is still under-appreciated, me being to first to comment on your entry, and the entry being about ME.

all best, Bob Grumman
