    Characters Ú Poems 1962 1997 Poems 1962 1997I read this book while sitting by the ocean I didn’t realize how much it was getting to me until I went to float in the waves Overhead 10 pelicans were flying I am the sort of person who always has to count them The last 2 were lagging slightly behind I looked up and thought “That space is where you breathe Those last 2 pelicans are a stanza” This collection of Robert Lax’s poems which seems to privilege the most “abstract” and spartan of his work is a godsend Wave Books deserves huge praise and respect for taking the risk of publishing it Reading this book brings to mind the sensation of wandering alone through an almost empty art museum just a few objects perhaps prehistoric with an immense space around them To me that is a divine and longed for sensation Others in a

    Characters Ú Poems 1962 1997 Poems 1962 1997Certainly not everyone's cup of tea and not my usual poetry leanings As the intro points out Lax was linked with the concrete poets in the mid 20th century but not really of them Lax's attention to layout the incorporation of layout as part of the poem wasn't however a kind of shaped poetry or poetry as visual as with the concretes He was writing in columns instead of lines again as the intro points out and this it seems to me makes his poetry and its layout a matter of music than visual art Words as notes or sounds but not in the Dada sense of senselessness Rather rhythmic and extremely simple or basic images repeated in a musical manner
