Postcards from Simon Pettet

Taking our cues from Ken and Anne Mikolowski of The Alternative Press (my personal heros), we here at farfalla have given the poet Simon Pettet 500 postcards to collage, write poems, doodle, glue found text and art in the tradition that set the stage for Ted Berrigan's A certain slant of sunlight. For the next few years an excitement at the mailbox for us all. Pettet brings a new breath to this project with his economic witticism, wonderful eye and keen ear.

Have a wonderful, wonderful day.
