Proem
Another ending once unloosed, a measure of earth momentarily lent some less rugged face or thorny pleasure. Easily, before this life’s destroyed, an ever accruing voice holds fast proof of the healing exiled words devise. Even if one thought you were finally done with rime, the heart wants pleasing, the heat and cool of your native leisure.

 

The author of twenty books of poetry, Paul Vangelisti is a translator, journalist, and former Cultural Affairs Director at KPFK radio. He was co-editor of the literary magazine Invisible City, and editor of Ribot, the annual publication of the College of Neglected Science. Currently, he is editing, with Luigi Ballerini, a five-volume anthology of contemporary American poetry, from 1960 to the present, Nuova poesia americana, for Mondadori publishing in Milan.

Born in Los Angeles in 1951, Dennis Phillips is the author of ten books of poetry and one novel, Hope (2007). Former director of the Beyond Baroque Literary Center in Venice, past book review editor for Sulfur magazine, and poetry editor of the L.A. Weekly, Phillips is a professor in the Department of Liberal Arts and Sciences at Art Center College of Design and teaches regularly in the Graduate Writing program at Otis College of Art and Design.
