I have always been rather attracted to T.S. Eliot's dictum that the poet's task was 'to say the most with the least', but many people have complained that my one-word or phrase works, such as the one above, are not really poems at all, not even concrete ones. Maybe they're right, but I've got to call them something. Influences include [Bob Cobbing] and [Kay Rosen] who puts her concrete poems on canvas and calls them paintings, which is one solution.
