Poetry. Mannerism, derived from the Italian maneria, meaning simply "style." Kovac's MANNERISM: "You refused me the vote and I had to use a rock." With phono & photo-graphic surety the photo & phono-poems of MANNERISM happen as rings, happen as chiseled sensual nature furnishes a curving smashing day. "Aspire all ye who proffer to secede by turns from consequence."
