However, except for Robert Bowen's photograph, "Flat Irony," a surrealistic image of the NYC Flat Iron Building floating in space Mark Jenkinson's night photograph of a Los Vegas scene, I did not find the rest of the contributions successful in this regard. -- Source of annotation: Marvin or Ruth Sackner.

The card is addressed to Bernadette Walsh aka Bernadette Mayer who heads The Poetry Project in NYC. Weiner has written on each ruled page of this student style notebook a series of promises some of which can be read in a straight foward fashion, others omitting articles, verbs and nouns, and still others an incorrect tense to the verbs. These errors increase progressively over the course of this book which begins, "I promise to write readible and coherent letters. I promise to write a filthy book." Further, the sizes of the writing are also instructions for printed layout. Finally, scatteed throughout the book is the phrase Big Word, another instruction. During the period of writing this book (one of several hundred in this style), Weiner became a pyschotic recluse living in Manhattan. She emerged from this state about 1977. -- Source of annotation: Marvin or Ruth Sackner.
