"But I was thinking in the future conditional rather than the plain future; it's the tense that minimises responsibility." "At times, I suspect that the concept of maturity is maintained by a conspiracy of niceness."

One Crossed Out: Poems
Excerpt from "Perfection and Derangement" "You asked me what I know about G-d and coincidence. I walk through you to tell you, the place where you stood like an opening in the form of an offering." "The Apophatic Path" "1. What isn't what is not Discover me! or Try to find me. If being is finding, can you find me? Who to, this address? ... Being as close to a shadow as a color what isn't is what is and I can't see but know as no. Non amari sed amare. ... Or will a question be, 'Is the discovery for real me?' Signature a stone??? Like what isn't is what is when not being ever ever ever found! 2. Basic science will blend ghostness among enemies. Now bodies cemented down in monster denomination to be counted one of the walking corpses I see whitening and emptying under a sun makes me know me to be no one. 3. Walk to developmental old trombone--I-- seeking to be found-- inside time!--by one whose blues seek by speaking tunes to this specific city afternoon of bread, fumes, and orange nasturtiums--am,still,solo-- even the base of me being, unknown."

This Present Moment: New Poems
"Here" "In the dark (The new moon long set) A soft grumble in the breeze Is the sound of a jet so high It's already long gone by Some planet Rising from the east shines Through the trees It's been years since I thought, Why are we here"

Singularities (Wesleyan Poetry)
"Occult ferocity of origin each winged ambition sand track wind scatter Inarticulate true meaning lives beyond thought linked from beginning Pilings of thought under spoken Physiognomy of Liberty far friend forever Nestling Forfeit mortality Cycles snare mastery headlong centuries cycles ensnare Face answers face limit and quiet Limit Field of vision and field of future Shadowy Icarian figuration Vision closes over vision Standpoint melts into open wanton meteor ensign streaming" "Fence blown down in a winter storm darkened by outstripped possession Field stretching out of the world this book is as old as the people There are traces of blood in a fairy tale" "In the machinery of injustice my whole being is Vision" "Elegiac western Imagination Mysterious confined enigma a possible field of work The expanse of unconcealment so different from all maps Spiritual typography of elegy Nature in us as a Nature the actual one the ideal Self tent tree sere leaf spectre Unconscious demarkations range I pick my compass to pieces Dark here in the driftings in the spaces of drifting Complicity battling redemption"

Traffic with Macbeth (Tupelo Masters)
Excerpt from "Nihilist" "there are no eyes, just destinies, and there goes mine-- streak across the heather, hairless wonder who knew better than to sit around and apprehend the thicket through and through." Excerpt from "Edgepoeple" "In the jigsaw of eternity, dying is the glue." Excerpt from "Accordion" "When you hate yourself, there is one less house keeping you in, at home. I'm running amok with emptiness where there's no such thing."

Edwin Mullhouse: The Life and Death of an American Writer, 1943-54, by Jeffrey Cartwright
"In the beginning was silence, womb of all words which all words seek, mother of these: breath of my life. How or when the first word sprang thence hither, I'll never know, nor why. Does it really matter? Perhaps sound is only an insanity of silence, a mad gibber of empty space grown fearful of listening to itself and hearing nothing. Thus are we madmen all. Or perhaps we are silence talking in her sleep, perhaps we are a long nightmare of silence as she thrashes in torment on her downy bed. And when she wakes? Idle speculations of an eleven-year-old soul, brooding on whence and whither. Edwin once agreed with me that the ideal order of words on a page creates in the ideal reader an ideal silence; thus words regain their mother; and all the shrill noises of adulation are nothing to an artist but evidences of his imperfection." "Genius...is the retention of the capacity to be obsessed." "'I aspire to the condition of fiction.'"

Isolato (Iowa Poetry Prize)
Excerpt from "Mare Imbrium" "After so many spells, the only language is the fire of a person." Excerpt from "Triage" "When there is no more life, step outside. Peel away the human." "Malady of the Bird" "If it has flown, then it knows God tore the world, and the space between heaven and earth is in shreds, and the question of living deep in the hollering sun, or homing the spas near heaven, or living at all, not wanting to live on earth as it is, is tense. And if it has flown, it has peered down at the thing called rock, and felt stilled by the rock's longevity, and has flown with a fear in its eye of longevity, peering again, asking, Why, God, is it still, closing the eye and feeling divided, like the flying lizard of myth, cut off, afloat, doffing skin after skin, a Jerusalem heart, exposed."
