Lilliput Review I mentioned in my recent "speed bump" post is going to feature the work of one of my favorite poets of the short form, Ed Baker. Ed is a staple around here, in both the poetry and comments department, sending along lots of pertinent and tangentially pertinent information, making sure that I get back on track when I veer off and that I veer off when I'm too grooved.
While I'm on "sabbatical" from the blog, I thought this delightful piece of serious whimsy might be just the thing, a little taste of lots of forthcoming goodness. Enjoy.
Lots more by Ed may be found on his webpage, Bare Bones Bonze. Be sure to keep paging down; there are lots of things to see.
