“It’s time to gather rest under duress.” Music and its family of allied arts reigns high in the world Logan Ryan Smith has carved for his Singers. Dance and ritual act as... More > counterforces to the martial law the poem has been written under, in this time of Iraq incursion that touches every aspect of our lives. Smith sends out these poems like bulletins to his heroes, his confreres, his girlfriends, his dead; in the serial form pioneered by Jack Spicer, John Ashbery, Robin Blaser, and Larry Kearney, the tropes rumble like card tricks—Spicer’s forests, diamonds, Giants and knights advance and retreat across a musical chessboard. If there was no one else writing poetry in all of the Bay Area, we would still be “covered”; with Logan Ryan Smith at bat we’ll see angels in the outfield. —Kevin Killian< Less

The book is graced by collages prepared by his daughter... More > who was born then and whose work reflects some homage to her father's then friend, Jess Collins, whose own works gained prominence at that same time. Brown's approach he believes is shaped by his admiration for the poetry of Wallace Stevens, John Berryman and Jack Spicer. From his poem, "Chase Away": "The words Crumby wants have no shape, not fingerprints,/ just mortal meandering that goes from breakfast to supper,/ mentioning a quiver, a slight pain, an excitement, or colors/ that keep the snarling dog at bay, that while away the day."
