Tell Me More, Tallmo

via Dan Waber's minimalist concrete poetry:

I think this describes an ideal state that a healthy percentage of concrete poetry works towards--to be immediately apprehended in the way a road sign or (since we're here in the land of navigational iconography) a navigational icon is. Slipping in under the threshold of awareness, the twisting scalpel of subverted meaning can strike that much deeper, and be that much more effective. Here, I have a better idea, how about if I let Karl-Erik Tallmo show you what I mean.
