Sentences Toward Birds

Robert Grenier

Sentences Toward Birds was published in 1975 by Curtis Faville's L Publications in a small edition (under one-hundred). The cards are housed in a manila envelope and sealed with a red sticker. Faville's cover design, based on a vintage postcard, gives a nod to the jacket design of Grenier's Dusk Road Games: Poems 1960-1966 (Cambridge: Pym Randall, 1967), and the format of the unbound cards anticipates the monumental Sentences (Cambridge: Whale Cloth, 1978) in which some of the poems reappear. The envelope and title page state the title differently.
The order displayed here is aleatory; the cards were intended to be read in any sequence.
