Math Poets

I have been delinquent in making entries into the blog but finally I have put some links into the link section. Besides myself I have added a link to a couple of Bob Grumman's pages and one to a Page of Scott Helms. Of all of Bobs Work my favorite is the one above. Bob and I seem to be the only people in the English speaking world who continue to focus on Mathematical Poetry or Math-Po If there are others please let me know. There are others who have done work in Visual Poetry and call their work Mathematical Poetry Karl Kempton is one who has done some very interesting Visual Poetry Using Mathematical operations on text. I would guess that the authority on how Math has been used in Visual Poetry would be Bob Grumman or Possibly Geof Huth. Geof is my focal point on the world of Visual Poetry. The depth of information Geof covers is astounding.
While I am on the subject of Visual Poetry I would like to mention I really like the selected poems by Michael P. Garofalo
