    The subtle technique by which you draw images out of bristle brushes mixed with blood on prehistoric cave walls; or, Michelangelo’s unfinished heads and torsos emerging lifelike from inanimate blocks of marble, is extraordinary. I evoke imagery in my poetry by the use of minimalism. You’ve accomplished this with broad strokes and complex language. My hat’s off to you.

    Thanks for this, especially since I was just reading the cave poems & suddenly didn’t think they worked at all. Poetry is such a solitary affair, & so encouragement out of the silence is as good a gift for a poet as any.

  3. Pablo Cuzco says:

    Great. I’m glad I picked that one, then. The imagery is moving in the sense that it evokes motion. The long lines for each stanza immerse the reader. I tried the technique recently, after reading this and the Michelangelo piece – if you don’t mind – fragmenting images to create a whole. I ended up with a sort of Haibun that I feel worked out better than the original prose form I’d written it in. But, yes, the cave poems work very well.

    Just got the book in the mail today and started reading. I love your use of “&” 🤓

  5. Tim Miller says:

    Thanks Eleanor. I’d love to know what you think as you go along. You’d be surprised at those who have critical reactions just against the ampersands; to me they look like musical notes on the page, & when read aloud (I hope) even more so.
