Poetry. HERE explores a method of expansiveness, how poems sustain a very long line, taking in emotions, objects, and scenes as they appear or are built. Stretching the concept of sentence and description to capacity, the poems witness such subjects as public commemoration and war, the death of a friend, and the distinct mood of love in relation to one's environment and powers of description.
Poetry. The series of poems in Maxine Chernoff's WITHOUT are elegiac brushstrokes, each somewhat feathery and brushing in more than one direction, which creates tension and unexpected arrivals as well as departures: someone or something is missing. Parts of the world are wavering and parts have disappeared.
"Every line resonates with a wind that crosses oceans."--Jamaal May
"Zamora's work is real life turned into myth and myth made real life." --Glappitnova
