    by James Ross Kelly
    February 28, 2021 by Henry Stanton ANNOUNCING THE PUBLICATION OF “BLACK ICE AND FIRE” BY JAMES ROSS KELLY A finely crafted James Kelly poem is born of knowing.

You will read a poem from within a thing; you will be imbibing presence from outside and all around a thing; you will be gathering all of it up in your arms and you will embrace a thing. You cannot be mild, indifferent, cavalier.... more
