I was excited when Zachary first contacted me and I found out that he too was a shape poet. There doesn’t seem to be many of us these days so it was a real honor for me to feature some of his work here. What I love most about Zachary’s work is his attention to details that really bring out his work. Please go visit Zachary’s site for readable versions of his works and to see more of his wonderful visual poetry. His web site is called Languagisticology: http://zslawrence.blogspot.com/
