Brush Mind: At Hand by Hank Lazer

Poet Hank Lazer captures delicious moments with the literal strokes of his pen. Lazer has published twenty-two books of poetry. Brush Mind adds another dimension to Lazer’s handwritten shape-writing Notebook project (see N24 and N18) with a casualness, freshness, rapidity, humor, and depth in a unique kind of flash poetry book ; this book can be read cover to cover in seven minutes. Brush Mind began with a special brush pen given to the poet by Buddhist priest/poet Norman Fischer, and owes a debt to the calligraphy work of the great Kazuaki Tanahashi.
