Buffalo Focus is a special section of each issue of BlazeVOX that takes an extended look at one writer from our hometown, Buffalo, NY. It is a real honor to present in this issue an ebook of sorts of minimal poems from our new poetry editor Shinwell Johnson, and what better way to introduce him to our audiences than through his poetry. So hurray!

Tuesday is a Wet Sock is a wonderful group of one line minimal poems that bring to mind the work of Aram Saroyan and Robert Grenier, although he will point out in an instant, this is not language poetry. He would say this is a reduction, a condensate, a single drip rolling down the frosty glass of American poetry. I say it is great fun and I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. So please give a warm welcome to Shinwell! Hurray!
