before music, haiku by Philip Rowland
“Rowland’s poems build meaning from sound with a subtle and subliminal grace, bringing new surprises and joy with each reading. Zukofsky and Corman would admire his faithfulness to every word, his clean lines, and his discreet narrative of love and family. To me, before music marks a rediscovery of haiku for the English-speaking world that should prove as invigorating as the modernist one of a century ago.” John Martone
