Poetry. LEFT HAVING is the second full-length collection from poet Jesse Seldess. "One sees lines coming into being going out of existence. Taken that way, the words turning toward lines, seeing them become one another as they differ among themselves and dissipate into words and as spaces, this reader virtually floats and within this active resting state practices an incredible intimacy with the unknown in communication and in sharing an imminent sensate awareness with its language. Jesse Seldess's work performs this book, honoring and taking full advantage of its occasion to replace any knowing with the certainty of a relentlessly generous nature. I will never get to the bottom of it, and this work demonstrates what a pleasure and what an honest reckoning that can be"—Steve Benson.
