John Jack Jackie (Edward) Cooper

John Jack Jackie (Edward) Cooper is the creator of These Are Aphorithms and the author of Ten (Poets Wear Prada, 2012). His American English translation of Wax Women, with French texts of the original poems by Jean-Pierre Lemesle and photographs by Henry Jacobs (International Art Office: Paris, 1985), drew acclaim and dedicated full-window display from the Gotham Book Mart in New York — legendary fishing hole to the “wise” — released in the United States the following year. His work has appeared in Brownstone Poets 2012; The Venetian Hour, Dinner with the Muse, Part II; CLWR 49 and online (exitstrata.com); forthcoming, in “CLWR 50” and the Unbearables anthology “Somewhere to Nowhere.” His whereabouts have been numerous, like his names, but, unlike them, at present unknown. He is co-publisher and production manager of Poets Wear Prada, a small literary press based in Hoboken, New Jersey (United States) ― birthplace of baseball and Frank Sinatra.
