Galatea Resurrects publishes Michael Heller's engagement with Paul Pines' GATHERING SPARKS! You can see the entire essay, which was presented at the Marsh Hawk Press book launch, HERE, but here's an excerpt:
As with all his works—sometimes sharp to the point of poignancy in Gathering Sparks—Paul’s poetry is a quest, spiritual, linguistic, psychological, a constant effort of human repair and recovery. His way, as he proclaims in Gathering Sparks, is to find something which “allows him to feel/the world as proximate/unbounded.” That unboundedness, which one finds in the amplitude of Paul’s poetry, its range of reference, its epical breadth of open sea, foreign lands, international capitols, all coexisting with an equally powerful grainy particularity of immediate presence and human contact, is, in my reading, also an ethical quest for openness to experience and vulnerability.

Eileen R. Tabios' and j/j hastain's collaborative book the relational elations of ORPHANED ALGEBRA is addressed in T.C. Marshall's essay, “A Secret Agent, a Spaceman, & a Talking Bear: ATheory of Doubling the Stakes in Poetry” for POST-CRISIS POETICS edited by Brian Ang. Here's an excerpt:
Eileen Tabios and j/j hastain have carried doubling into a collaborative text that combines her “sense of physicality” with hastain’s trans identity and “the idea of the poem as also a body,” all while working with her adopted son’s school life and the condition of orphaned bodies (v. my review in GR #20). This seemingly labyrinthine combination was for her “a useful scaffolding for managing personal biases and emotion so that they did not get in the way of creating the poem.” She ends this book with “A Poetics Fragment” that expresses the belief that a poem is “completed elsewhere” by others, beyond the poet’s realm of control, and that “one poem can have many different completions.” This is the essence of the noetic, where questionings and contradictions put off conclusions.
