Blonds on Bikes is George Bowering's first book of poetry since Urban Snow was published by Talonbooks in 1992. Characteristic of Bowering's other work, this book is largely made up of sequences. The longest one, the title poem, is a composition of daily riffs during an autumn in Denmark and Italy. "Pictures" is an album of verbal portraits by a husband and wife who see differently. There is a series oftributes to other writers on special occasions. Sometimes a short lyric sticks its head up. Whatever the form, Bowering is more interested in sound than he is in ground, more interested in wit than he is in shovels. If you read carefully, you might get a little scared. If you want "one of the last great masters who can use language to impose an individual yet universal order on the perceived world,"

dont get your hopes up. Look out for
