John Jack Jackie (Edward) Cooper loved hopscotch, especially, when quite young; loosely configured lines, in particular, which he doted on carving himself from the pavement with chalk. Choosing the stone, its incalculable toss and anarchic landing, problematical constraint on advance, and, of course, attempting anything—standing on one leg—all, contributed to the challenge experience has induced scarce reason for him since, now quite older, to abandon strategy. He translated Wax Women, poems in French, published in Paris in 1985, to which the legendary Gotham Book Mart in New York dedicated full-window display. Ten, previewing his “aphorithms,” recently appeared. Click.
