This volume of the Written word Series (LTA Inc.) presents 46 trimerics, half of which have not been published previously (half appeared in a limited edition chapbook by the author). Trimerics are structured poems of four stanzas each with the 2nd, 3rd and 4th lines of the first stanza repeated to introduce successive stanzas.
