! ANN ROBINSON ! JOSEPH ZACCARDI ! RICHARD CRUWYS BROWN ! brought to us by this month’s guest curator MELANIE STOFF MAIER !

November 27, 2010

Curator’s note:  Carl Sandburg said, “a poem is like an echo asking a shadow to dance.” I think this is a such a wonderful description of what I do as a poet:  listen to the echoes, see the shadows in everyday life and from the past, then fuse these to make what I hope is poetic music.  It’s that process that makes hours spent writing melt away.  I love the fact that I’m so often surprised as to where my poems take me.
