Welcome to It

On April 25th, Reed Aletmus sent me one of his small packages of mailart. Inside were an announcement for his Copyartistamps show in Portland, Maine (which ends today); a postcard noting advertising the small press fair in Mainz, Germany (the city being just a letter away from "Maine"), and the following little visual poem.

Reed Altemus, "I T La" (2002)

Since Reed likes making poems that hint at, rather than use, words, this poem and others remind me of the scores for Dada sound poems. A wonderful little piece full of Reed's sure grasp of the printer's fist.
