Poetry. Over a stream of metaphysically gilt lyrics, Martin Corless-Smith has undertaken to limn the soul within limits of body, time, and interrelation. In conversation with classicism and location, sieving gloss and dross in easeful tune, he has written a continuous verse of grace within our time. In this new work we find him losing and lost yet buoyant in visions.
