I am the house I glue in. - Robert Seydel, “Formulas and Flowers” from Book of Ruth
“Things seem to collect around me, wherever I go, in the same way ideas occur as if from nowhere, and since I have always balked at throwing anything out, I sometimes imagine my house simply a context for unexpected items. I write under much the same compulsion: whether local images or abstract concepts, whatever interests me I hold on to as best I can and a poem is my formal grip. Everyone knows that a painter can put the most disparate things into a single picture–Jesus Christ, for instance, along with a Dutch windmill–and they are seen then in a single light.” - Keith Waldrop from A Windmill Near Cavalry’s dust jacket
Mark Leidner is the author of The Angel in the Dream of Our Hangover and Beauty Was the Case That They Gave Me. He lives in Northampton, MA.
