Visual poems in Australian Poetry Journal 3.2 #concrete
I have a couple of pieces of visual poetry from a series called Every afternoon at precisely the same time (after H. G. Wells’ ‘The First Men in the Moon’) included in Australian Poetry Journal 3.2 #concrete. The two pieces below are from the same series.
Other contributors include Dan Disney, Chris Edwards, Michael Farrell, Toby Fitch, Angela Gardner, Jill Jones, Alex Selenitsch, pete spence, John Warwicker, Eryk Wenziak, Cecilia White and more. It is a visual word feast edited by Bronwyn Lea. Bronwyn has posted the Foreword on her website and I am particularly fond of her comment ‘concrete poems ask readers to look simultaneously ‘at’ and ‘through’ language’. You can purchase a copy here.
