GREEN FUSE--#16, spring/summer 1992

3365 Holland Dr.
Santa Rosa CA 95405

48 pp., $4.50

Poetry from an environmentalist viewpoint--Gary Snyder and Antler would, I'm sure, be welcome. Paul Willis paints a lovely picture ("Rain on lemons/hung aloft in winter shine/of limb-leaved skies/trickling down tart skins..."), and Elizabeth Herron's "Drownded Woman" series is a fine mesh of language and image. Other poets seem limited by their ecological concerns--when the issues are drawn in such stark black and white, the resulting poetry can seem colorless.--luigi
