To begin ...

As the twentieth century fades out
the nineteenth begins
it is as if nothing happened
though those who lived it thought
that everything was happening
enough to name a world for & a time
to hold it in your hand
unlimited.......the last delusion
like the perfect mask of death

Jerome Rothenberg: Eleven New Books & Publications in 2013

[For the record at year's end, I will briefly insert the following list of some of my updated book publications, published this year or now awaiting publication. For me the year also marked the reissue of my old magazine New Wilderness Letter through Jacket2 and the archiving of more performances on PennSound & Charlie Morrow’s Mister Bowler Radio.  A more comprehensive list of books, magazine publications, & interviews between 2009 & 2011 previously appeared here & here on Poems and Poetics.]
