Go for Mr. Grumman
"Go for Mr. Grumman," is an example of what I call eidetic poetry (aka, "concrete" or "shape poetry" or "visual poetry") and is one of the few in its genre that attempts to depict motion--and this is seen in the air bubbles rising from 'someone's' corpse at the bottom of the sea. (It works best on a small screen, as I wrote it for a small laptop-size screen. Use your scroll bar to move the image up and down.) It's been said about this poem (that "anxiety of influence thing") that I am picturing Bob Grumman dead, but that's not true (or else it wasn't true at the time I wrote it). - Gregory Vincent St. Thomasino
