  1. Comments from Mary-Marcia Casoly:
    I've gotten back to doing some visual poetry, and was especially inspired after hearing John M. Bennett on Jack Foley's show "Cover to Cover" KPFA recently. I liked what John M. Bennett said about creating the poems, the various ways have a "training, separately" and that all dimensions a poem might have, also have a "mental process" He often called what he did not poems, it seemed to me, but artifacts. Then, Jesse Glass brought this Mail Art Vispo to my attention.
    I am very much interested in mixed poetics and multi-media expressions. On the very precipice of your deadline I offer a few artifacts using Corel Painter 8."
