She's back! And with an amazing long poem, too.

Also amazed by the debut issue of Fasicle. At first glance it reminds me of an American Jacket, not that "American" means much given the wealth of translations. A terrific snapshot (archive may be the more accurate word) of our poetic moment. I jumped immediately to the interview between Dale Smith and Alan Gilbert: a sustained and sustaining conversation on the topic of what is to be done, which was posted in parts at the Possum Pouch last year. The speculation on intersections between metaphysical and social approaches to poetry is particularly relevant to where my head's at right now. And the conversation as a whole is a marvelous primer on the history of American poetics, particularly after 1989.
