Poetry. Returning to Maine after years living in Israel and Jordan, Stephen Ellis, the respected publisher/editor of Oasii Press, brings with him poems threaded with references to Petra, Jerusalem, the crusades: The crusader ruins at Apollonia / shine. You can almost taste // that limestone's ancient blaze. . . (Zenith). Ellis is a delight, a master of music in language: Walking the fields of the dream/ composed/ of thousands of literal dandelions/ the golden spikes of their geometry/ a piece of a clause/ spinning and reflected/ in my reopened eye. . . (Weight at the Gate). Perfectbound chapbook. Also available as part of an 8 book set for $21. Please see listing under Jensen/Daniels set.
