graphic for Peter Reading, Fiction

Fiction was Peter Reading’s fourth published volume of poems and contains 23 poems. The epigraph sets the central theme:
Verse is not Fiction
Ask any librarian.
“Reality” and fiction are always in question and the work deals with the absence of centers of meaning, even including this last line in the first poem, Fiction, “Even one’s self is wholly fictitious.”
