Description
"O'Brien writes meditative poetry at the highest level. The thinking here is not 'about' anything; rather thinking becomes a modality of being within which the potential of lyric situations unfolds and takes on delightful intensities. These are not poems to interpret but to explore for how the mind attentive to the full resources of lyric traditions stretches the senses and therefore finds itself more truly and more strange."--Charles Altieri"Green and Gray is a gem of poetic invention. There is a palpable exuberance in the way Geoffrey G. O'Brien confronts and celebrates the enigmas of being and perception. Ineluctable and Unpredictable stroll and swerve across these pages like Stan and Ollie, Krazy Kat and Ignatz, Hamm and Clov, Deleuze and Guattari, reveling at once in the music of thought and the music of chance. Best of all, we are invited to join them."--Michael Palmer, author of Company of Moths
