THE SKY POSITION
Winner of the 2007 Stafford/Hall Award for Poetry, our inaugural release, Tom Blood's The Sky Position redefines the contemporary lyric poem.
"Clearly, if ever there was a magic casement, it is Blood's. Here, perception becomes a beautiful act of absolute sympathy and attention a continuous evidence of perfect compassion. Never once does Blood diminish or deform his subjects. Rather, he puts his syntax and his self entirely at the service of their well-beloved motion. These are poems for the world, in all its wildness, in all its nearness." - Donald Revell
FROM PAGE 32, "THE JURISDICTION OF CLOUDS":
where is not the fire where is the wing fly
it is not its double, the bank of the river
a man with his foot inside a horse
a plant inside the plant in the eye
