C.C.

Louis J. Cabri, Author, Tyrone Williams, Author Krupskaya $11 (95p) ISBN 978-1-928650-15-7
In six sections-""Calling Cards""; ""Carded""; ""Called Card""; ""Cold Calls""; ""Who Is It""; and ""Tag""-Tyrone Williams forwards (""cc's"") some serious correspondence in c.c. Beginning with torqued Web search sampling that takes Bob Hope as symbol of old guard hegemony (""discombobulated/ status qua `ad lib'... Hope dressed up in another caper""), Williams moves through, successively, a ""fetal,/ misshapened, delegged/ future `i',"" ""Not de gustibus but homegoing, via Heaven's Gate,"" and ""a relic amid the rattle of Charleston subways."" From the zingers and, putdowns emerges a remarkable sensibility that purposefully seeks and synthesizes out of the way histories, commemorating figures like civil rights activist Ola Mae Quarterman, dancer Arthur Bell and Hayes Williams, a prisoner whose conviction was overturned by DNA evidence. Cimino's cinematic failure is thus just one force propelling these missives.
