Wonderings by Kenneth Patchen, 84 pages.
Since it's "one-word title" year for our blogging competition, I decided to read this Kenneth Patchen title that has been sitting on my bookshelve for (literally) decades. Each page is a watercolor illustration done in Patchen's distinctive style (all in black and white in this book), each with an accompanying poem, also in Patchen's distinctive style. I like Patchen's poems generally, especially his longer works. The poems here are brief, lonesome, and elliptic.
