poetry i like: in no particular order:

1. George Brecht

2. George Quasha "You’ll get to encounter it anyway: / It in us, in it, in us, anyway."

3. Ernesto Cardenal "Hydrogen I shall be, but hydrogen in love."

4. i savor browsing the "light& dust" poets, whoever they are. http://www.thing.net/~grist/l&d/lighthom.htm

5. i like the "ethnopoetics" that seem to me to be, what quasha calls, "axial."

6. i enjoy grinding things through a translater such as babelfish.altavista.com, and back again.

7. i am slain by a morgan gibson: http://www.thing.net/~grist/lnd/mgibson.htm ; "

The sparrow on the wall

watches me

watching him

watching me fly away.

" if anyone knows anything about him, finds more work, or references to any collections, please drop it here thank you!

8. Lyn Hejinian
