artcritical’s POETRY FOR ART (Editor: Michael Heller) presents newly published poetry, or poetry posted to the web for the first time, that relates to visual art. It can be poetry that responds, like criticism, to work on view at the time of posting. Or, as is the case here, it can represent collaboration between an artist and a poet.
