Poetry. Two words make the prosodic "line," three lines make a "lyrica," linked lyrica make a serial poem. More koan than haiku, THE LYRICA POEMS work that thin vein where words are mistaken for things. Hannon's poems are insects gathered at the crack of sap, blood, a trail of crumbs. They dissolve a thing, carry it off.
Michael Hannon, aka Big Cup, was born in 1939 and began making poems sometime in 1959. He has been widely published in journals and anthologies here and abroad, and is the author of numerous letterpress editions. Mr. Hannon's poetry and collaboration with the artist William T. Wiley are the subjects of an upcoming documentary film, My Mother Walked Out, to be released in 2012 by Wish TV Productions.Author City: Los Osos, CA USA
