Description

The poems in Almost Spring were written from 1992 to 1998 and show Ball's ongoing engagement with nature, with visual and aural perception, and with language.
"Imagistic and minimalist, a kind of literary Donald Judd, Ball sculpts language, leaving common denominators reverberating with multiple meanings."? Karl Jirgens, mondo hunkamooga
"Ball's writing is less about making ‘art’ than it is about recreating a familiar, heightened state of attention."? Kevin Connolly, eye
