Bitter Green (Paperback)
Martin Corless-Smith limns the lyric soul within limits of body, time, and interrelation. In this new work we find him losing and lost yet buoyant in visions of classicism and location.
I have finished a moment more lasting than bronze
A fresh nothing held up to the face of Boreas
When I look for myself I am not even there
Everything has escaped through the fingers of my goddess
