Bill Pauly was one of the first poets to explore the use of concrete poetry effects in English-language haiku, and never better than in this, his remarkable and prescient first chapbook (HIGH/COO PRESS, 1977).

You can read the entire book in the THF Digital Library.

Do you have a chapbook published 2009 or earlier you would like featured as a Book of the Week? Contact us for details.

Haiku featured in the Book of the Week Archive are selected by Jim Kacian, following a concept first explored by Tom Clausen, and are used with permission.





flint on steel; starfall
jesus xt i think you 're younger
thirsty root in dark oak unwintering
branch to branch the bluejay brightens rain
night foreest a web breaks across her face
father, your eyes that cut where we scythe wheat
