Nov. 20- P. Inman, Allen Fisher




P. Inman’s many books include: amounts to (Potes & Poets), at least
(Krupskaya), criss cross (Roof Books), now/time (Bronze Skull), ocker
(Tuumba Press), vel (O Books), & Ad Finitum ( if p then q press).

Peter’s work is so unique in it’s materiality, vectors, astonishing
sweeps of sound, time & space- his stance is an undermining of the
mere idea or question of “stance”, his process is not strategy but
terse, tactile discrete increments so miniscule & vast that we
constantly arrive at a clearing where there is only a when of a now-

buckle up- his poetry is the most radical & innovative imaginable.


“Writing as an attempt to create a negative, insubordinate space

within the administered space we’re all daily subjected to… So most

of the terminology I find myself falling back on is a terminology of

distancing & differentiation. What writing has to get rid of, what it

isn’t, or hopes it isn’t.”

P. Inman
