Ron Silliman. Toner. 1992. 67 pp.

I had forgotten I had this part of Silliman's Alphabet. It consists of 66 pages seven-line stanzas, three stanzas to the page, plus a concluding stanza on page 67, in a san serif font. At one point he switches to all caps, then switches back again.

I'm not sure it's quite as great as Demo to Ink or Paradise. I like the fact that I know this work in fragmentary bits rather than as a single magnum opus.

What's your take on What.

I assume you mean the section of Silliman's alphabet with that title. I own a copy somewhere but it doesn't stick out in my memory.
