Didier Cahen, translated by Cid Corman:

tel-let 1818 Phillips Pl.
Charleston, IL, 61920

34 pp.

Poems that tick off various greys and nullities in flat usually two- to four-word sentences like- "all secret/ sky infirm/ distant runs the other shore." But the poems, in sequence, subtly (and secularly) sneak from genesis ("Man comes/ day breaks") to a poem in which "the fable is renewed" and "all is carven in you/ life envelops night/ dying is impossible."--Bob Grumman
