where i leave off / waar ik ophoud, haiku by Jim Kacian
"Jim Kacian’s latest volume explores, to absolutely nobody’s surprise, the one-line haiku, in this special hand-made book from t’ schrijverke. In three brief sections the author explains some of the techniques he has discovered in this format which he suggests are “unavailable to the Japanese poet”. Each section is followed by plenty of examples, and the volume is rounded off by a section of “one-bun,” haibun in which the prose element is limited to a single line, which the author does claim as his own invention. In English and Dutch.
This is not just innovation for innovation’s sake, but innovation with return; innovation in service of return. A turning, for instance, once again to nature; and again, treating the nature of the poem as an inhabitation.” Richard Gilbert, author of Poems of Consciousness
