*Jim McCrary: *Most recent publication /All That/ (ManyPenny Press,

Burroughs, Ed Dorn and most recently Robert Baumann and Anne Boyer . . .

*James Yeary* occasionally poses as visual artist Nate Orton, with whom
he has printed the books /my night at chopsticks/, /my day at the
library/, and /my day walking across portland vol. 1: E 247th, Gresham
to E 41st/. The my day series synthesize and disavow constraint,
procedure, and nonce writing, vying to use the text of the city itself
to illustrate the subaltern ego in all of us. He has worked in print
and radio journalism and holds a Bachelor's in General Studies from the
University of Idaho.
*BEING LED ASTRAY---EKBALAM, YUCATAN*
Precise is a way of moving
and in a place like this
So one should very well
What one misses while considering
what one finds overwhelming.
Certainly one hears where to look.
To contemplate the advantage
of movement over an obstacle.
one who has gone to the top.
How could that *be*? And why?
What were they thinking?
Would we have done something different.
Then again perhaps there is something
in the word pyramid.
Marx is Back
"That's what I like to hear
pneumatic drill attempts to displace
the song stuck in my head
("our old flag was better")
This dance the flow of the gutter's puddle
to the drilling
"That sums up my feelings
to all modern architecture"
Trying to decide if a corner's important
Flapping tire mix't in w/ the recall
Feeling like dirt in an Ed Ruscha
Like the god of parking lots
from /Tabor to the Zoo/
