Concrete Poetry

Many, many years ago I was exposed to the work of poet Pedro Xisto. His genre is concrete poetry, which can sometimes rise to a marriage between art and poetry.  As in this piece of his, titled Ephitalamiun. It's my favorite piece by him, and I have always remembered it from when I first encountered back in college.  I just found it while trawling for him on the web the other day. Hope you enjoy!
