PLASTIC TOWER--#10 and 11, 1992

PO Box 702
Bowied MD 20718

40 pp., $2.50

For the most part, over-the-back-fence, over-a-cup-of-coffee kind of conversations without fancy or flowery language--just something that happened, something I was thinking about, something I wanted to tell you. An emphasis on content rather than form, where the speaker wants to make sure you understand. The Persian Gulf war offered several notable occasions for such work in #10. Exceptionally, Thomas Zimmerman's haiku is fine and precisely drawn, and Kelly Washbourne's work in #11 is playful and melodic. A handful of reviews take up the last few pages of each issue.--luigi
