Poetry. In GO TO THE PINE, Mark Pawlak furthers his exploration of the journal form that he had begun in a previous collection, approaching the traditional haibun with a postmodern sensibility, one that is filtered through the aesthetics of post-Beat, New York School, and Objectivist poetries. He treats the form imaginatively—some might say, irreverently—much the way that Ted Berrigan treated the sonnet. The essence of haibun is what he is after, and that, simply stated, is terse prose and prose narrative combined with keen observation of nature (including people) recorded as minimalist poems or poetic epiphanies.
