The four poems in this book are each driven by different visual and conceptual engines, the most elaborate of which is spelled out in a rather apologetic letter of explanation as a preface to “IBM.” In “Ego Hego Shego,” “Soldier,” and “Fête Duchampêtre,” the letter pressed visual puns need no explanation for their elegant deployment in the service of poetry. — Printed Matter
