LILLIPUT REVIEW--#37 and 38, 1992

207 S. Millvale Ave. #3
Pittsburgh PA 15224

2 pp., $1 or SASE

True to its name, tiny collections of tiny (10 lines maximum) poems. Although there aren't many traditional 5-7-5 haiku, most of the work relies on the kind of imagistic snapshot that most Westerners associate with that tradition. Not always pretty snapshots: check Lyn Lifshin's "AIDS Hospice" or VietNam vet Bill Shields' "a purple enough heart".--luigi
