Poet Dorianne Laux says, "Michael Meyerhofer takes us with him everywhere he goes, from the back rooms of hash-slingers to the Star of Africa. He weighs a whale's brain and imagines the "cattle-dark eyes" of Neanderthals. I like these poems, kinetic and half-crazed, they remind me that poetry is an explosion, that energy plus mass equals a dark magic."

  • Near Things

    by Mark Dimaisip
    In this short collection of poems, Mark uses cats to discuss the urgency of living, math to measure the possibility of happiness and atoms to prove that reincarnation happens. He mixes his own blend of voodoo science and pseudo philosophy to write a world where “the universe has no time to conspire against you” but “everything exists as an extension of yourself”—while thirsts are never fully quenched and “we never get close enough”, he offers a way to make the “the eventual absent present foreve... more

I've drawn on the New Testament and some of the non-canonical, "gnostic" gospels, as well as on my own ... more
