Poetry. In Ross' seventh book of poetry, he explores the relationships of seemingly unrelated words- of "middle" to "excluded," "dizzy" to "morality," "language" to "stump," - brilliantly revealing the processes of thought and the associative relationships of anything to everything else, of concepts of gardens to weeds to seeds, from plants to addictions to matches. Winner of the 2003 Gertrude Stein Poetry Award, Ross' book demonstrates, once again, his intense exploration of meaning and the way we (the readers) determine - through those meanings - how they will live in the world.
Winner of the 2003 Gertrude Stein Awards for Poetry, selected by Douglas Messerli.
