... little lines creep up on you ... Is satire a lower aim than poetry? Both are here, fighting each other for space ...... and there's a lot of space ............ enormous blank cosmos ...... gently but decisively interrupted by these little lines ... that squiggle ...... in the same way that transparent little threads migrate across my field of vision ... invisible when I'm not paying attention ... never sitting still when I am paying attention ............ Blechman's drawings -- you always want to call them "little drawings" -- vibrate. I don't see his pleasure in these drawings ... not the way you see animal pleasure in a violent artist like Milt Gross or Jack Kirby. It's more like ...... walking ... than dancing. They could rename this book Walking Lines ............ lines that walk around ...... and sniff around ...... for evidence ... of other lines ...
