Whale of Desire by Micah Towery

vivascene-shazia-hafiz-ramji-reviews-micah-towery-whale-of-desire

Micah Towery’s poems are little miracles of lyric intelligence pitched against a skeptic’s need for faith: faith in God, faith in other people, faith in love, and faith that daily life means more than its repetitions and its downward spiral toward death. His devotion to the clear expression of such mixed emotions is reflected in how these poems are by turns satiric, tender, self-deprecating, and vulnerable. And as if to match this wide range of tone, his idiom is among the most varied and surprising of any writer of his generation: he moves from high style to plain style with the assurance of O’Hara and Bishop at their best. I greatly admire the integrity of feeling in these poems, their sophistication, and their devotion to subjects that are large and important and deeply felt.

—Tom Sleigh, winner of the Kingsley Tufts Poetry Award

The Girls in Chartreuse Jackets by Maria Mazziotti Gillan

51l1Q2ZSjLL._SX258_BO1,204,203,200_

Watching Gillan’s artistic endeavors, over the years, I should have been prepared for this new aspect, but I was unaware of her work on canvas—delicate, highly imagined, yet able to sustain a dialogue with her poetry. It doesn’t matter what an artist’s intention is if the delivery doesn’t modify our view of the world, or touch our fiber. Gillan’s capabilities expand, giving us the desires and whims of an American Humanist with her gift, ”Behold I make things new.”
