Storm Toward Morning free pdf "To be both visionary and accurate, true to physics and metaphysics at the same time, is rare and puts the poet in some rarefied company. Black, like a few other younger poets, is willing to include all the traditional effects of the lyric poem in his work, but he has set them going in new and lively ways, with the confidence and virtuosity and a belief in the ancient pleasures of pattern and repetition."--Mark Jarman, "American Poet"Lush and daring, Malachi Black's poems in "Storm Toward Morning" press all points along the spectrum of human positions, from sickness, isolation, and insomniac disarray to serenity, wonder, and spiritual yearning. Pulsing at the intersections of "eye and I," body and mind, physical and metaphysical, Black brings distinctive voice, vision, and music to matters of universal mortal concern."Query on Typography": "What is the lightinside the openingof every letter: white behind the anglesis a language brightbecause a curvatureof space insidea line is visibleis script a signof what it doesor does not occupyscripture the covenantof eye and Iwith word or whatthe word defineswhich is sourceand which is shrinethe light of bodyor the light behind?"Malachi Black holds a BA in literature from New York University and an MFA in creative writing from the University of Texas at Austin's Michener Center for Writers.
