Ah, Squares

Art_by_toni_simon_from_mipo_1207

The MiPo journal is best known for "poesisas," but the art issue (December 2007) makes for a fun e-visit.  It is dedicated to art that has some relationship (although not necessarily a visible one) to poetry.  This painting of squares and rectangles is by Toni Simon.  Her art has been used on the covers of a number of different poetry books and literary journals.

Freefall2

Free Fall 2 is a collage made by her husband, the poet Nick Piombino

This issue of MiPo features the work of eight different artists, including their indefatigable  publisher, Didi Menendez.
