On a Visual Poem by Sheila Murphy

via Bob Grumman's po-X-cetera

What really grabbed me, however, was the way the plaintive, yellow hopefulness of "won't you touch me?" drops from the story. The result is a wonderful psychological study, a genuine poem and an appealing illumage, all interacting. That is, the text is not labeling but fulfilling the design.
