3) Theresa Hak Kyung Cha's Dictee

4) Lauren Fairbanks' Muzzle Thyself (Dalkey Archive Press)

5) Clark Coolidge's Mesh

also recently acquired:

1)Bruce Andew's Give Em Enough Rope

2) Geraldine Monk's -Inter-REGNUM (Creation Press. I've devoured this twice already. Delicious. Hopkins+objectivist+Vorticist/Primitivist)

3) Louis Zukofksy's A (University of California Press. This will be a continual project for quite a while)

4) Mark Scroggins' Louis Zukofsky and the poetry of Knowledge (fascinating so far)
