The Goldilocks Zone

By Kate Gale

“The clipped jumpy rhythm of these poems with their sudden bursts of syntax prove repeatedly that Kate Gale possesses a poetic tone and pace all her own. She is also refreshingly out of step with today’s poetry of self-absorption, for she is fascinated less by her ego than by the strange variety of the world around us.”—Billy Collins, former U.S. Poet Laureate

City of Slow Dissolve

By John Chávez

“When city and self merge, poet John Chávez begins his magic: to build the child under our eyes. The child is both cityscape and self under scrutiny, ‘clearly disciplined & put to repair.' The child is parent and body, both the painted canvas and the revealed photograph. Watch this miracle of consciousness unfold in City of Slow Dissolve. Rejoice in our chance to reappraise and reinvent, even recover, our human identity, even our souls, through Chávez's art.”—Hilda Raz, Mary Burritt Christiansen Poetry Series editor
