Ed Markowski—15 Poems Lilliput Review, #172
Ed Markowski’s keeps saying it without words in this, Don Wentworth’s, latest (December, 2009) Lilliput Broadside, 16 pages, 15 poems…for only one dollar in the publisher/poet’s begging bowl…
so much silence, so much light…
the scarecrow’s sutra
no one has
a hat to pass
atheist’s funeral (an eight word story)
in the dead man’s lapel,
a plastic rose.

Thanks for this Norb, much appreciated … Ed is one of the very best. Don
It requires great art to say so much, with so little words.
I am an expansive writer (blow hard?) I comfort myself
that so was Faulkner, the first Tom Wolfe, and James
Joyce. There is room for both kinds of writers I guess,
but those of few words with great meaning, quiet our
souls and made us think deeper.
These are great. I’m buying it now. Much to be learned from the spaces between words. –Peter
