Reflections on Songs beyond Bounds

Clicking on the picture below will link you to my review of Marc di Saverio’s debut poetry collection, Sanatorium Songs (Palimpsest Press).

I first met Marc in the strangest way that I imagine you could meet someone–through the graffiti of a sanatorium lavatory. We were later (formally) introduced to each other by a mutual acquaintance who believed our ideas to be similar, if not necessarily our styles and methods. Since our initial meetings, debates, and (ultimately, for all involved) lessons, we’ve remained friends in the most honest of ways. For this review, I wrote a ‘glosa’ (a classical poetic form) that incorporates the title and body of one of Marc’s haiku.
