Measures is a book of free verse. The poems take form at the time they are being written. There is no preconception of what a poem is in these pages. The process of writing determines the outcome. They are somewhat like the action field writing of the 1950s; something like the work of the Abstract Expressionist painters of the same period. Sounds and iterations are formative. The illustrations, like the poems, depend on lines and are rhythmic, repetitive patterns that score the text. They are like commentaries on the poems in another language.
