Poetry. Photography. Poems by Mark Wallace and prints by Lawley Paisley-Jones. "Mark Wallace's wonderfully sharp, self reflexive, and darkly humorous sonnets are wisdom teeth stolen from the golden mouths of metaphysical hucksters, penny-a-line journalists, late 20th century loners, liars, and poetic hit-men"—Charles Borkhuis. Mark Wallace creates a poetics of paradoxes. The reader is stunned by the sheer intelligence of it, yet there is warmth and an almost frightening vulnerability. Mark Wallace is a visionary who refuses to deny what he sees. His poems are sensitive and important"—Susan Smith Nash.
