Frolic with Gala

Makoto Fujimura linked to Gala Bent yesterday on twitter, and last night I couldn't resist writing a poem inhabiting one of her vast landscapes. Today I'm saving a smidge of time to read in her blog. I would offer an enticing image but haven't asked permission--just go look!

Marly Youmans's novel now in pre-order is A Death at the White Camellia OrphanageHer 2011 book of poems is The Throne of Psyche.

Alas, I must once again remind large numbers of Chinese salesmen and other worldwide peddlers that if they fall into the Gulf of Spam, they will be eaten by roaming Balrogs. The rest of you, lovers of grace, poetry, and horses (nod to Yeats--you do not have to be fond of horses), feel free to leave fascinating missives and curious arguments.
