  • dedicated to John Martone

    The following is the last parallel that I composed in 2018 and I emailed it to John Martone as a gift to thank him for his acceptance of a number of my pieces for Otata 37. This token of my admiration for both him and his work contains so much of what I see as my poetic ideal as to style, form, and content.

    On the last day of 2018 John emailed me "That is beautiful. May I use it?" and then "Thank you. I'm honored to get such a gift. It gets a page to itself." He added it as a last minute addition to Otata 37 January, 2019.pdf

        So so good. The punctuation on the first lines adds so much.

          these are from a batch I had intended to sent to Otata but I never got around to it, and then I read the note on the website

            I am sure that if John was going to manage to get Otata 48 out he would have seized both of these. I also sent a couple of pieces that I am holding onto for the present.
