The full title of this on the cover is "IMBRICATIONS - BUSINESS VERSE COMPILED BY ALLEN FISHER". Imbrications? The plural of an overlapping, as of tiles or shingles; a decoration or pattern resembling this. Business Verse? Some might have an idea of poetry that it shdn't include such a subject matter. The after-note claims that this "attends to the relationship between power and the health of those who weald it". For me, just the basic premise is enuf to make me fascinated. To poeticize concerns w/ what might ordinarily seem banal or cut & dry, ie: 'beneath notice' for 'sensitives', is a charge.
