Tools & Letters & Spaces

Nelson Ball has a poem “for and after bpNichol” in The Continuous Present (Coburg: Proper Tales Press, 2012). He notes that “The visual poems were written while I was editing the Coach House Books edition (2004) of bpNichol’s Konfessions Of An Elizabethan Fan Dancer“.

The poem is entitled “Basic Construction Materials” and consists of a single line (and twenty-six letters).

There are in Konfessions Of An Elizabethan Fan Dancer no punctuation marks. Just letters and spaces except for # sign in a few titles and one place where there is underscoring. Perfect homage.

And so for day 2209
